Alternative Workspaces: An Outlook for 2018


As technology changes, and as both individual and company values change, the working world finds itself in a state of perpetual evolution. At Collaborate, we are elated to be a part of the thriving alternative workspace movement that develops in sync with the ever-changing professional world.

According to GCUC, the largest coworking conference series in the world, over 50% of the population will be working independently by 2020. GCUC also believes that the biggest trend in 2018 will be an increased focus on both physical and mental health/wellness. What this means is that an increasing number of working professionals - and even companies and corporations themselves - will be moving away from traditional office environments. They will be looking for space to work and, more than likely, that space is going to be outside of the home.

Why the shift? For starters, home workspaces are not only lacking in the business resources  found in office spaces, but also in the feeling of community that an office environment provides. Working from home can lead to increased stress levels, struggles with work-life balance, and feelings of isolation. Collaborate is glad to offer its members a comfort level akin to working from home, but with the added benefit of back-office support, business amenities, and networking opportunities. We've curated an atmosphere that fosters collaboration and at the same time gives tenants the privacy they need to get their work done.

It’s a brand-new year, so why not take the leap and join the alternative workspace movement? After all, working from home was so 2017. Contact us to try out a day at Collaborate - we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
