Working from home may seem like a perk when not located in the same geographic location as your employer, but with a reported 43 percent of professionals working remotely, a work-life balance is becoming harder to maintain when there’s no distinction between the two. Selling your boss on a coworking space, whether a full-time or virtual membership, is a matter of investing in both the company and its employees. Here are some talking points.
Aside from the obvious distractions of dishes and laundry that come along with working from home, employees who utilize a coworking space report feeling 84 percent more motivated than working from home.
Getting out of the house inevitably leads to human interaction, which in some cases, can turn into business leads. Even still, there’s something to be said for surrounding yourself with like-minded creative individuals—a reported 64 percent more productive, in fact.
Take into account how much time is spent troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues, hooking up a printer, and all the other obstacles that get in the way of your day-to-day responsibilities. Transitioning to a coworking space reportedly contributes to being 68 percent more focused while also eliminating the need to lease a separate office space.
Even if you’re not meeting with clients face-to-face on a regular basis, participating in video conferences and conference calls are made more professional when your cat isn’t in the background, contributing to a reported 92 percent satisfaction rate.
