Does Coworking Work?

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 3.15.36 PMLinked below is a great article from Sharedesk.  If you are interested in coworking, or perhaps as the title of the article asks “Can Corporations Learn from Coworking”, please read the article.  It provides a good review on coworking, worker autonomy, productivity, flexibility in the workplace, long-lost cubicles (remember those?!?!) and even paying employees to QUIT!

The article also quotes some interesting data from a recent Deskmag survey.  Of the 1,500 coworkers surveyed,

  • 75% reported an increase in productivity,
  • 86% reported a decrease in their sense of isolation,
  • 83% reported that they trusted others in their coworking space,
  • 92% reported an increase in the size of their social circle, and 
  • 80% reported an increase in their business network

So from our perspective we also agree that YES, coworking works.
