Shared office spaces are rising in popularity, with Small Business Labs predicting that by 2020 more than 26000 co-working spaces will be in use globally. There are several reasons for this trend, including; flexibility, a positive culture and greater connection to others. In a survey conducted by Harvard Business Review, it was found that people who work in shared spaces see their work as meaningful, feel they have increased job control and feel part of a community. These benefits are not only great for the individual, but also for companies as employees may feel a renewed sense of energy and purpose.
We have discovered all this for ourselves in our new home at Digital Nomad. Digital Nomad is a boutique, premium quality coworking space right in the heart of Wellington on Lombard Street. We share our office space with several other companies and individual professionals, meaning we get to meet all sorts of different people on a daily basis. We are thoroughly enjoying the highly social and community driven nature of sharing an office and can definitely relate to the benefits outlined above. We especially enjoy the daily office attempt at the Stuff quiz.
