What Are the Advantages of a Hybrid Workspace?
A hybrid workplace model operates by combining a traditional work environment with remote working opportunities. This means people can come and go as they please and are able to select either dedicated desks
or hot desks
whenever they’re in a coworking space. Dividing their time between home and the office provides business men and women with the flexibility, structure, and functionality that go with each separate environment and atmosphere.
This is why so many people see this as the future of work scenarios.
Why Do People Switch to a Hybrid Workspace?
Even before the pandemic, office workers had increasingly been pushing toward a hybrid workspace. Basically where they can work from home part time. Since the pandemic basically made it a necessity throughout many industries, it’s become an even more attractive prospect. This trend is especially prominent with younger workers, so we fully expect it to be an increasingly popular
and common work option.
How Coworking Spaces Use a Hybrid Workspace
A big goal of coworking spaces
is to embrace the idea of developing a hybrid workspace for their clients. Many people believe this is the way of the future as more workers insist on flexibility and more workplace options.
Here are some of the ways that this is achieved:
Many people during the pandemic learned that they love to work at home, but it’s no secret that prolonged isolation can be detrimental to a person’s mental and emotional health
. A hybrid workspace allows you to enter a work environment when you
feel the need to do so instead of being forced. Even just a low level of interaction while you’re there can do wonders for your psyche.
24/7 Building Access
It’s really difficult these days to lock down exactly what a normal home life looks like. Many people find themselves working late into the night because it’s the only quiet time they can find. With most memberships of coworking spaces offering access to their facility 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you can freely go between home and the office very easily.
One of the drawbacks of only working from home is that you may appear less professional to clients and customers. You can solve this problem by signing up for a coworking membership
or even just as an individual option that will allow you to have a business address that you can give to people, in addition to receiving deliveries.
Taking care of ourselves physically has become an important sticking point over the past couple of years, since so many of us succumbed to the infamous “Pandemic 15” (gaining 15 pounds). Going down to the gym is an option, but it often seems like a chore. By choosing a coworking space that offers workout equipment for cardio and strength training, you can burn calories and energize yourself before or after your work hours.
No matter where you work on a given day, you’ll often need access to reliable office equipment such as a printer and a copier. Hybrid workspaces will have basic office equipment that you can always rely on. This is really convenient in case your home equipment breaks down or you suddenly have a need to prep documents for your clients.
Except in very rare instances, you probably don’t want to have clients show up at your home for a meeting, nor do you want a Zoom call with a Deadpool poster on your wall in the background. Coworking spaces offer several meeting and conference rooms
where you can schedule discussions with local or even global individuals. This gives you the flexibility of a traditional office space without any of the hassle.
A Nap Away from Home
One of the best parts about working remotely is that you can often take a nap in the middle of the day to recharge yourself. Coworking spaces have taken this to heart by offering comfortable nap spaces that are accessible throughout the day and night. This gives you a quiet spot to catch a little shut-eye and get re-energized.
