There is definitely a new movement starting to take hold that is gaining more traction as people start to see an increase in productivity and satisfaction at work. The shared work space as an alternative to working from a congested office, home desk, or cafe table is becoming the more popular option for freelancers and entrepreneurial types alike.
Shared work spaces often have several distinct features including long communal shared tables where work can be done, some more private spaces, a lounge area, and of course, coffee. The WIFI, desk and chair, and enclosed glass office model mimics some of the traditional work office theme but lacks office politics and the stifling influence that can often bring.
People report feeling more inspired when working from shared work spaces, which in turn increases productivity and job performance. The other great aspect about shared work spaces is that individuals come together to get their jobs done. They are all there to have a focused session with their work so these spaces fill up with other like minded and driven people. While these driven types of people are all showing up to mainly work on their own projects, there is the possibility to collaborate with others, to engage socially and make connections that one may have never made when working from home or an office.
One particularly impressive shared work space is located at the heart of it all in the center of Manhattan. This coworking space is high up off the ground, nestled into a luxury office building, with all of the appointed features that a luxury building in Manhattan comes with. The bright sunlight streams into the office space from the three outdoor terraces and many windows, giving people a sense of warmth and energy. The opportunity to go outside and take a break on a terrace with a great view or to lounge on a nice leather couch in a shared meeting space in between work sessions helps workers to get those much needed breaks that can give the mind those needed breaks in a long work day that actually increase job performance and productivity.
Workville coworking space NYC rents spaces by the hour, week or month at reasonable rates for the center of Manhattan. There are also conference rooms, private offices and private desks that can be rented in addition to the communal shared work spaces.
