As information technology became a major part of the workforce, many companies and freelancers were starting to see the cost-effectiveness of working from home instead of traveling to an office. But while this is convenient, it also could be hard for workers who started feeling more isolated or less motivated to work. So many people have looked for a balance between the grinding corporate offices and the confines of home, and now it appears they have found it. Enter coworking spaces, facilities that offer an office environment that’s different than a regular office environment.
Coworking spaces basically provide office equipment such as printers, copiers, fax machines, and workstations to people who need them for their job, while at the same time giving people independent spaces from which to work from. Many freelancers and self-employed workers come to coworking spaces because they are still able to work independently, but become a part of a greater community who they can collaborate with or even find more work to add to their schedule. It’s not uncommon for someone to get hired for a short-term job, or even become part of an independent startup company all in one day due to the constant hustle and bustle at coworking spaces.
New York City is a prime place for coworking spaces, and one luxurious space in Manhattan is Workville. Workville has many amenities that coworking spaces in NYC have come to require. For example, workers can enjoy such as office equipment, coffee machines, conference rooms, mail service, and terraces providing a great view of the city. Regulars get 24/7 access to the building and cleaning service during slower hours. Workville has different monthly rental options from full private offices with dedicated desks, to open spaces for those on a smaller budget. Rooms can be reserved ahead of time for private parties and meetings. To get more information or to schedule a tour, go to www.workvillenyc.com.
