What are ‘co-working’ spaces?Hub Australia is an example of a co-working space that was created to connect people and organisations with talent, ideas, and resources to achieve their goals. As Amy Green, National Marketing Manager at Hub Australia explains, “the overall mission is to create a home for businesses to grow.”
The growing demand for co-working spaces can largely be attributed to their flexibility and emphasis on collaboration. “Many coworking spaces offer regular event programming, focussing on networking, professional development, and wellbeing,” Amy explains.
“These provide opportunities for people to meet a community larger than their team, which also opens the door to collaboration and business growth, as well as sharing expertise and knowledge between industries and teams.”
It’s a commonality among those in the freelance and entrepreneurial market to lift up the success of others because this kind of work often exists to support passion projects. The adoption of co-working spaces facilitates this and provides the networking opportunities that workers in this economy will need to reap success.
Whilst the appeal may seem to be directed towards a predominantly millennial audience (“millennials work in very different styles compared to previous generations”), the flexibility of co-working means that there are a variety of options. “Most co-working spaces, such as Hub Australia, will offer different breakout spaces, private meeting rooms, quiet areas and private offices, allowing teams access to whichever option suits them best.”
