Why are India’s co-working spaces getting popular?
=> Not very long ago,
‘working’ was synonymous with going to a physical space, sitting in a fixed
cubicle, maybe teaming up with
fellow workers then heading home after a day’s
work. This fixed 5-days-a-week, 9-to-5 routine would be repeated week after
month after month.
=> Work culture today is
different. Technology has enabled us to be more flexible with our time and
People can sit in any part of the world and yet work together, at
their time and convenience.
The traditional 9-to-5 routine is not so routine
=> Besides, there are more
entrepreneurs and start-ups, more consultants and freelancers, and definitely
more fluid work systems. All of these factors put together have given rise to a
spurt of co-working spaces,
and India is no exception to this phenomenon.
=> These shared office spaces attract
individuals looking for a place to work, or a group collaborating on a project,
a start-up or an SME. They would rather use precious time and resources on
their core offering than on investing
time in finalising a suitable workplace
and putting the necessary infrastructure together.
