Who Uses and Benefits from Co-working Spaces?

Working outside of the conventional office environment is no stranger to the UK. Many professionals had opted to work from home, however some are now finding it to be isolating, reducing productivity and increasing work related fatigue.

To combat these work burnout symptoms, independent professionals are now using co-working spaces. A co-working space is a membership-based workspace where people from different business and industries work together in a shared, communal setting. There are several types of people who would benefit from using a co-working space instead of working from home.

Remote Workers

One group of people which will benefit from utilising a co-working space is remote workers. Most remote workers operate from a home office, or a local coffee shop to have freedom whilst saving money.

Businesses which employ remote workers typically do this to save costs and provide employees with greater flexibility in the hopes of enhanced productivity. This may seem ideal on a surface level, but some remote workers tend to face an abundance of distractions at home, or deal with isolation.

After these distractions and isolation carries on for a few months, employees started to encounter the challenge of work-related burnout. This is where co-working spaces become an appropriate solution.

Co-working spaces allow remote workers to maintain their freedom while not feeling isolated. These spaces are designed to create a professional environment and are comprised of many like-minded.

Remote workers can arrange their own schedule and decide what days to use the co-working space. Whether they want to work from home or the co-working space, they have complete autonomy over their preferences.

People who travel

The biggest difficulty professionals face while travelling is finding a reliable place to work from. Several unknown variables such as internet speed, meeting spaces and other amenities can quickly become a problem when working in a foreign environment.

For frequent travellers, this is where co-working spaces become convenient. With professionals commonly travelling to large metropolitan cities, co-working spaces are in abundance in those areas.

Co-working space providers give professionals global access to all their co-working locations with one membership. This ensures they have secure fast internet, printers, in-house I.T. support, receptionists and secretarial assistance.

All of these benefits make co-working a safer option than working from a hotel or somewhere else.


Because freelancers work for many different companies or clients, sometimes even simultaneously, they often suffer from a lack of structure. Co-working spaces help freelancers by providing them with access to meeting rooms, a professional address, and a social environment that’s ideal for networking.

Co-working spaces which have these amenities can help mitigate the lack of stability that freelancers often experience, whilst keeping the level of freedom they are accustomed to.


The last group of people that can benefit from the use of co-working spaces is people who working in conventional office settings. While this may seem counterintuitive, this is how hybrid offices are beginning to take shape in many businesses.

Although some businesses allow their employees to work anywhere under hybrid conditions, this overlooks several basic security measures. Working from home, cafes or other public places can lead to employees using unsafe networks, confidential conversations can be overheard and any sensitive information on screens can be seen.

Co-working spaces which provide high levels of security, private booths to take calls and certifies that your coworkers are legitimate businesses, removes this security threat.
