Coworking is here to stay and infact its more likely to become even more popular in the ‘new normal’ when more people re-evaluate their work space requirements. Why do we love coworking so much?
The word ‘coworking’ did not exist when the first ever hackerspace, C-base, opened in Berlin in 1995. This community C-base offered a physical location where people could meet and work and was created based around coworking principles;
- A collection of like-minded people with similar interests and values
- Emphasis on community
- Space available for coworking and events
Today – we still identify with the same values here at The Tara Building as this first coworking space and infact our culture is much more closely aligned to this, than many of our competitors, and we are extremely proud of that. We have never lost sight of the need to create a space that attracts a like minded audience who share that feeling of community.
Here at The Tara Building, the whole emphasis of the building inside and out is designed to enhance collaboration and friendship.
So how does a coworker differ from a corporate employee?
Compared to corporate employees, who in many instances still are expected to show up in the office space within normal working hours, many of the people who make use of The Tara Building coworking spaces have the flexibility to work wherever and whenever they want. We attract people who work work independently and with less hierarchy.
It’s fair to say that our Members are accountable for their own projects, progress and work. Compared to the corporate offices there is less direct competition, internal politics – the coworking space gives them the room to be themselves and concentrate on their own productivity. Recently though, we’ve seen more interest from Corporate business open to allowing their employees to work full or part-time from a coworking space and this is a trend we see set to continue, as we return to the ‘new normal’.
Coworking creates a feeling of community
Coworking is here to stay and infact its more likely to become even more popular in the ‘new normal’ when more people re-evaluate their work space requirements. Why do we love coworking so much?. Our coworkers see themselves as thriving. And research has shown this is the main reason coworking is chosen as a workplace solution.
Coworking spaces as perceived as places of imagination and creativity
Coworkers use The Tara Building in a different way to a Corporate Office. Firstly, they decided to become a member, they can access the building 24/7 and they have the freedoms to choose when they want to network, have a coffee or indeed where and when they work. Our coworking spaces at The Tara Building offer members the freedom and independence to work in the way that makes sense for them while still remaining in the hub of the community.
We will continue to promote The Tara Building as a real option for those re-evaluating their workplace options and we invite you to take a tour of The Tara Building and discover a new, more productive way of working.
