Work Together

As of now, there are over 35 million individuals who have decided not to work in a traditional office setting. These individuals have found their new workspaces at home, in coffee shops, and in coworking spaces. Of these workplace settings, coworking provides the best environment for those looking for a non-traditional office space. Here are 5 benefits of coworking that you’ll want to consider when looking for your ideal workspace:

1. Flexibility

It is not uncommon for individuals to choose to work in a non-traditional office setting because they want to have a more flexible schedule. However, working from home can be distracting, and working in a coffee shop can feel unprofessional. With coworking, you can keep the work-from-home flexibility while still enjoying the professional benefits of working in a traditional office.

2. Community

Coworking gives you the opportunity to work in a social setting while still having the privacy and independence to get your work done. Think of it like getting your work done in a coffee shop while being surrounded by like-minded professionals who are also looking to further their careers. While at WORKZONES you can still choose to work in one of our private offices in Santa Barbara, you have access to our coworking space and the opportunity to chat with the other members, get ideas for new products, and generally enjoy a community of like-minded individuals.

3. Networking

The perfect networking opportunity, coworking spaces such as WORKZONES give professionals from different industries the opportunity to work alongside one another. Working in the same professional office space as people from different industries gives you access to potential clients, partnerships, focus groups, and friends. At WORKZONES, we offer member mixers to give our members more networking opportunities.

4. Creativity

As mentioned before, coworking allows you to enjoy community while working and increases your networking opportunities. What’s better is that, when you work in a community and network, the act of collaborating with like-minded professionals allows you to experience different ways of thinking. Being exposed to these other perspectives trains you to be more open to various problem-solving methods which, in turn, boost your creativity.

5. Productivity

When opportunities for collaboration and creativity increase, the act of working with people who have different skill sets and engaging in creative thinking allows you to be more productive. This is because you are able to pull inspiration from your environment and use that inspiration when creating new products or improving the products you already have. If you’re the type of person who needs a private space to work and also enjoys the opportunity to collaborate with others, WORKZONES offers private offices spaces for rent so that you can get the social and individual time you need to get your work done.
