Every year on August 9th, people around the world celebrate International Coworking Day. Why this date? Software programmer Brad Neuberg published a blog entry on August 9 of that year to popularize the concept of coworking. Despite conducting various types of work, he wished to establish a group of like-minded individuals who would collaborate.
Coworking spaces are, in the most basic sense, places where professionals from various companies work in one office that has specific work and common areas.
Shared resources including tools, services, and facilities characterize coworking spaces. The expense of maintaining an office can be divided among members by sharing infrastructure, but coworking spaces provide more benefits than just cost savings.
Growing companies can access new talent pools and expand their reach without taking on the risk of a long-term contract by using coworking spaces. They offer remote workers a handy location to network and collaborate with other coworkers without having to travel too far.
The modern world is changing how individuals work. The fact that there is no one strict definition of what coworking should be is the reason for celebration in and of itself. Coworking is varied, adaptable, and doesn’t fit well into a neat box.
The purpose of International Coworking Day is to recognize all the advantages of flexible workspaces. Every coworking space has its own special benefits, whether it’s the environment, the amenities, or the convenience. At NuvoDesk, we are proud of our diverse, encouraging community of entrepreneurs.
Whether you’re here for a day or here for the year, NuvoDesk welcomes all entrepreneurs at any stage of their business.
