The coworking scene has never been bigger. The huge appeal of coworking is not at lost at young professionals who thrive under unconventional office atmosphere. Coworking appeals to small companies and freelancers who are tired of spending money at coffee shops and paying for expensive internet data. Because of the huge demand, coworking spaces are now all over Metro Manila. Here’s a quick guide on how you can choose the best coworking space for your business.
The perfect location is still the number one priority when searching for a good coworking space. Look for a space that’s accessible to every member of your company.
What’s cool about coworking space is that it doesn’t adhere to the stiff and strict environment of a regular office. Choose a coworking space where you and your employees can be comfortable. Check out if the people are warm and friendly and if the space is something where you can stay for a long time.
Another specialty of coworking spaces is the opportunity to network with other creative minds. It’s a plus if the space’s community is united, friendly, and ready to help one another. This also means that you won’t have a hard time networking with other businesses. Coworking spaces like ASPACE even hold events such as film viewing and free food tasting to let spacers bond and connect with one another.
Look for the extra amenities. Does the space offer free coffee, tea, or juice? Do they have printers and reliable air condition? Does it have a pool table just in case you need some exercise?
Since you are not in a private office, it might be hard for you and your team to hold formal meetings or to meet clients. Check out if the space has its own meeting rooms and what are the conditions since some spaces require extra fees upon renting conference rooms.
Some coworking spaces offer different packages with a variety of perks. Figure out your budget first and select which type of package will benefit your team.
