INTERNATIONAL COWORKING DAY – August 9
Every year on August 9th, International Coworking Day celebrates the impact of the coworking movement. It’s also a day to realize we are all part of something greater than ourselves.
You know what a co-worker is, right? It’s someone that works at the same company as you. Coworking, however, is a little bit different. Coworking occurs when workers from different companies share the same space. It could be defined as a shared but independent working environment.
Oftentimes, coworkers bring together professionals that normally work from home. A coworking space might include independent writers, programmers, and graphic designers who gather together a couple of times a week. Besides just getting together for work purposes, they also bond in other ways. A day of coworking might start off with having coffee together. Their workday might also include a short meditation and walk breaks.
One of the greatest benefits of coworking is that it provides a wider range of networking opportunities. Other benefits of coworking include:
Provides collaboration opportunities
Offers greater flexibility
Provides a sense of belonging and purpose
Another advantage of coworking is that it is more cost-effective for business owners. Instead of having to pay all the expenses on their own, they get divided. Since its inception, more than one million people around the world work in coworking spaces each year.
