There is no doubt that coworking spaces post COVID-19 will have a totally different scenario than it was before the lockdown.
Among all the sectors that have had a huge impact due to the pandemic, coworking spaces are one of the major ones.
The coworking trend has come a long way since its inception, but now there is a change, the change to adapt to the new normal and still be a part of the rat race.
We know how important a community is when it comes to coworking spaces, but now what is more important is to be safe and healthy.
The following are some of the trends that might be a part of every shared office space!
Hygiene is going to be of ultimate importance for any shared workspaces. Location, convenience, cost, etc., will come only after hygiene. The coworking spaces will be more focused on the cleaning and regular sanitization of the office spaces. Ensuring enough masks, sanitizers are present, regular cleaning of the major touch points are things that coworking spaces will concentrate more.
More Customer Benefit
The occupancy of the shared office spaces will be a major challenge after the lockdown. The more benefits to the customers, the more the chances of space occupancy. Special offers, free rent for a month, and many such offers will help your coworking space keep going.
Work from home is also becoming one of the new normal. This gives an advantage to the shared office spaces to adapt to virtual office solutions. This will help companies to continue their work in a hassle-free manner from their homes. Virtual offices will soon hold a lot of demand in the days and years to come.
Flexibility and Planning
Now with all the precautions that need to be taken to cope up with the pandemic, social distancing is one of the most important ones. The flexibility and planning of spaces have to be re-thought and given a whole new approach so that when customers come, they feel safe.
