Why Coworking is the Future of Work

At Haven Collective, we offer coworking and private office spaces designed for focus, creativity, and connection between passionate freelancers and entrepreneurs. We believe in the unstoppable power of those who create, collaborate, and support one another. We don’t just talk about community, we created one. 

While we eat, sleep, and breathe the love for coworking, we find so many people that still aren’t quite sure what coworking is and question whether it’s going to stick around. 

Not only is coworking here to stay, but it is THE Future of Work! Here’s why. 


What is Coworking?

Coworking is similar to a traditional office, however, the big difference is that not everyone works for the same company or is working on the same project. The space itself is neutral ground and is shared by a multitude of people, often entrepreneurs and freelancers, that need a space to come and get work done. Now that more companies are allowing employees to work more flexibly (you’ve probably heard the terms hybrid or remote work) you’ll see more people coworking from larger companies too.

It is a great option for self-employed professionals that need a designated workplace, but don’t need the hassle of owning/renting their own space and all the overhead and headaches that come with it. 

As with many coworking spaces, Haven Collective is owned and managed specifically to accommodate this overall mission. Rooms and workspaces are created for a variety of needs: quiet work areas, meeting rooms, social work areas, lounge areas, kitchen space, etc. 

Also, coworking spaces usually provide basic office supplies, such as access to printers, dry-erase boards, staplers, hole punchers, private phone booths, meeting spaces, and more. 


Who is Coworking meant for?

The purpose of coworking is to provide a functional workspace for anyone that needs one. The target client of a coworking space is usually entrepreneurs, freelancers, small business owners, and – now – remote workers. 

Since 2008, the number of solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, bloggers, influencers, and anyone that makes a living using the internet has exponentially increased and will continue to do so. And they all need a workspace! Trust us, working from home and coffee shops can only get us so far.  (Don’t believe us? Click here to learn more). 

Plus, since the pandemic, we are also seeing a huge increase in people that work from home, even if it is for a big company. During that rather abrupt transition into social distancing, we learned that while some professionals preferred to work from their actual homes, many found that having the freedom to work from wherever they chose was more important. Therefore, coworking spaces are now being used more and more by professionals who are considered to be “remote workers.” Joining a coworking community provides a casual, yet focused workspace that allows flexibility and freedom among work-from-homers. 


What are the Main Benefits of Coworking?

In short, the biggest benefit of joining a coworking space is this: It provides a convenient, low-cost workspace that fulfills your office requirements so that you can focus on your business and your well-being. 

However, there are also some – perhaps, unexpected? – benefits that come with coworking spaces, such as:


Community + Networking Opportunities

Want to know a great way to build connections? Join a coworking space, like Haven. 

We’ve curated a diverse, supportive, and successful community of business owners, freelancers, remote workers, and solopreneurs.  

Through Monthly Signature Events, Peer Mastermind Groups, and flexible memberships, connecting with other like-minded people has never been easier. 

“This type [coworking] of interaction is a game changer when it comes to the workforce. People are able to expand their networks and learn from people within their industry; people they never would have met otherwise. When your company leases a floor from an office building on the side of town, you are only able to interact with the people in your company or just even your department. In a coworking space, you meet professionals from all over the area with different interests and connections. You are able to find new clients, collaborators, and new opportunities. All by just coming into the office.” – Source

Increase in Productivity and Creativity

Coworking spaces are developed with the member, or worker, in mind. It’s not built around the corner-office-plus-a-bunch-of-cubicles format. It’s built around everyone that has deadlines to meet, bills to pay, and mountains to climb. 

That means members are able to enjoy the freedom to roam about the cabin, as it were. Coworking spaces set you up for success by offering a variety of workspaces designed to fit your varying needs throughout the workday. 

Haven offers clear boundaries to spaces that cater to everyone’s work preferences. We have rooms that are more social and meant for having casual conversations, phone calls, and meetings. We also offer quiet rooms with little socialization and private zones, such as phone booths, for when you need them. There are also conference rooms and spaces that can be rented out for specific needs. 

“…in this type of workspace, members are not confined to just one area. They have the ability to utilize space other than their designated office. For so many professionals, writer’s block or creative block is a real obstacle. One of the most effective ways for combating block is to change your environment. Coworking spaces offer private phonebooths, relaxation rooms, soft seating areas, lounges, and hot desks so that their members can switch up their workspace and be inspired by what is around them.” – Source

Many remote workers have found that if the choice was between working from an originally formatted office or working from home – they would add an alternative option, which would be to become a member of their local coworking space, such as Haven Collective.
