Why do people thrive in coworking spaces?
The term coworking is not new, nor is it unfamiliar to many. Coworking, as it is known today, has been around for decades, but only now is it in the spotlight.
Why is this?
Covid-19 and the question of how we will be working post-pandemic have captivated the attention of the headlines. No longer will the 9-5 workweek in the traditional office be commonplace. Instead, companies such as Nationwide, Google and many others are opting for a more flexible approach to working.
For smaller companies, coworking spaces may prove to be the perfect solution.
But why is this? What makes coworking spaces the ultimate alternative to the traditional office?
Whether you’re a freelancer, entrepreneur, solopreneuer, digital nomad or a general employee, there is a coworking space for you.
Let’s jump into the main reasons why people thrive in coworking spaces.
People feel part of a community
It’s the same reason many people join, say, a football club or society in university; to feel part of a community. Being part of an ecosystem that is abundant with like-minded people who are all working on their own goals is a form of motivation on its own.
When networking, comradery and collaboration enter the party the community is even more reinforced. Why work alone when you can work together?
Coworking spaces are at least partly contributing to encouraging more community, with 89% of survey respondents in a Harvard Business Review article saying they were happier since joining a coworking space according to Forbes.
Not only this, but coworking spaces offer a unique chance to participate in fun events that can be themed around networking, movie nights, days away and much more. More than just a desk, right?
It broke the mundane working from home routine.
Coworking spaces like Hubflow provided a safe alternative in a time where many were asked to work from home.
Working from home can be an absolute pain – the same 4 walls day in day out, constant distractions from family members bickering and the TV looking ever so interesting.
Juxtapose this to a sleek, modern office with limited distractions, an ambience of focus and all the tools you need to bring your business to the next level.
Professional relationship building
The opportunity to foster and maintain professional relationships with others is one that is not easily accessible for many of us. WIth Covid-19 acting as a stubborn barrier, and many of us not having the time to attend networking events, it can seem a daunting task.
Often confused with selling, networking is actually about building long-term relationships and a good reputation over time. Regularly networking within your industry and discipline can set you up well to progress in your career.
The advantages of networking are plenty. From getting fresh new ideas, gaining fresh perspectives to building confidence; networking is about sharing more than it is about taking.
This is where coworking spaces come in. It’s like attending a networking event every day.
It’s as simple and hassle-free as a Spotify membership
With no nasty overhead costs, one single payment per month, and flexible terms allowing you to cancel at any time with no obligations, a Hubflow membership is similar to that of Netflix or Spotify.
We wanted to offer a fresh solution to the headaches of traditional offices, whilst also making our members lives as hassle-free as possible; allowing you to have much more time to work on your business and goals.
With Hubflow, everything is consolidated into 1 single monthly payment that is as flexible as it is affordable.

Coworking spaces, on the other hand, are designed to be vibrant, unique and beautiful.
With an abundance of natural light, careful attention to interior design, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Hubflow is designed to leave you with a greater sense of wellbeing every time you pop by.
