As the rise of the gig economy potentially foretells an end to traditional employment, it’s clear society is changing and taking the workplace with it. Coworking is a perfect example of where these changes are headed. By combining the communal aspect of a traditional corporate office with the flexibility and freedom of independent work conducted at home (or more often than not, at the local coffee shop), coworking meets both styles in the middle. Freelancers need not remain isolated at home, and traditional companies need not remain rigid at the office.
The modern workspace is also affected by who is working, and companies need to appeal to a younger workforce. Location is always important, which means everything from the actual physical location of the office, as well as the design and aesthetic of the building’s shared office spaces, walkability, and access to amenities.
At TechSpace, this is highly valued, as displayed by TechSpace Austin having access to a fitness center and locker rooms available to all members and TechSpace Westwood in LA being a short walk away from Westwood Village and UCLA, perfect for alumni who appreciate the short commute from the office to university labs.
