The benefits of coworking

From focus, to networking, to letting someone else look after maintenance, printing and broadband.

If you are looking for space to work or grow your small business in Manchester then coworking at Trinity Offices could be your answer.

Coworking provides a number of benefits if you are running a small business or just want to escape working from home.

We’ve found a wide range of reasons why people make use of shared office space. Whether it is productivity issues in the local coffee shop, the need for a professional office address for your new website contact page or another similar reason then we are here to help.

In addition, the recent coronavirus outbreak has impacted many domains of life such as travel, social interaction, health, business and employment. As a result, some businesses are making changes to traditional work practices that require more employees to work remotely.

In addition, local coworking can provide a solution for remote workers who have found issues working from home. You can find the benefits of a professional office environment without the regular commute to head office.

Local coworking space

Whether you are looking for a bricks-and-mortar location for running your online business or find yourself in need of a ‘third place’, that is not your home or the company head office, then coworking could be for you.

Here are 7 key areas where you could find benefit with local coworking and shared office space:

Better work-life balance

  • There is a mental separation between work and home (no more TV distractions or blurring of boundaries)
  • You can work around hours that suit your family and lifestyle with 24-hour coworking space access
  • Reduced commuting

Maintenance & deliveries

  • The convenience of internet, Wi-Fi, printing, telephone, electricity, heating, plumbing, toilets, cleaning and building security handled by an onsite management team (no dealing with those continuous DIY fixes or service issues that usually have to be handled at home)
  • Post, parcels and business deliveries handled by one reception point (saving the hassle of those missed delivery times)

Flexible business costs and savings

  • Your space can grow to meet your expansion or temporary seasonal needs
  • No heating the whole house while you work at home alone
  • On-site kitchen and dining facilities keep your away-from-home catering costs low

Professionalism

  • A place for client and supplier meetings (sometimes the coffee shop is impractical or lacks privacy)
  • A hub for regional meetings away from central office (or a place for teams to come together locally)
  • A professional business address provides peace of mind for your customers and locates the business away from your home address

Local impact

  • Local co-working locations support local community shops
  • Meeting other local business people can encourage collaboration and joint business growth

Productivity

  • A professional environment with similar hard-working professionals encourages focus and commitment to work
  • A structured work environment provides a reason to get out of the house and ‘dressed for work’
  • A positive culture of freelancers, entrepreneurs and self-starters provides a motivational environment
  • A regular routine of seeing a regular group of people can keep you committed and accountable
  • An organised environment provides room to think and is away from the clutter and chores of homelife
  • An escape from the isolation of working from home

Growth

  • The ability to collaborate with other small businesses that are traditionally attracted to coworking space such as marketing professionals, accounting, freelancers, start-ups, creatives, event organisers, business support services, IT and financial services
  • Peer support, diverse perspectives and brainstorming for common small business problems
  • Connection and collaboration opportunities for business development and sales opportunities
  • Enhanced network of contacts from other coworking occupants
  • New friendships or new clients


Ultimately, we survive in business with a diverse network of suppliers, service providers and lead generation activities. Sometimes it’s not what you know it is who you know (or who you know, knows) and coworking can be one way to meet more contacts.
