Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces

Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces

People often view a coworking space as a location with a collection of offices, open seating, dedicated desks, conference rooms, and phone booths. The benefits of leveraging coworking spaces for things other than “a place to work for a while” continue to grow as coworking spaces become more of a neighborhood resource for business. That’s right, people thrive in coworking spaces. Often overlooked are the non-traditional uses of coworking spaces.

Less-obvious uses of co-working spaces

Meetup Groupslooking for a venue to hold their meetings. Meetup groups that typically meet indoors such as programming groups, marketing groups, and recovery groups.
Book Clubs – More private than the local coffee shop or library

Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces

Wedding Rehearsals – Avoid the often expensive use of a wedding facility. Let’s face it, weddings are big business (and costly). Why spends thousands on the rehearsal? Use that money for your honeymoon.

Beyond the traditional uses of Coworking Spaces - Wedding rehearsal

Church Groups – Sundays are typically slow in most coworking spaces. Queue up the church groups!
Pinball Tournaments – on the weekend when the coworking spaces have easy 1st-floor access to move machines in and out for a weekend tournament
Cake Decorating Classes – if you have a good-sized kitchen and plenty of counter space, this can be an attractive option for you
Yoga Classes – our conference rooms can accommodate small Yoga classes
Meeting with your CPA – Maybe your CPA works from their home office? The two of you can meet in a small conference room in a coworking space to find out just how large your refund will be. And if you end up owing a lot of money to the government, there’s a chance that a therapist and/or financial planner may also be using the same co-working space…..so there, you’re covered.
Meeting with your Accountant or tax professional – Tax planning and preparing tax returns for individuals and businesses. Sometimes this task is better handled in person instead of a long thread of email between you and your accountant. The Ray Room is perfect for this type of meeting.
MDs, Nurse Practitioners, NMD most coworking spaces, although typically a communal type of experience can also allow for privacy. Enough of it to be HIPAA compliant.
Video Shoots – The Works can easily be an “office environment” for your next video shoot. Green screen available. We have a green screen available for video shoots.
Video Upload center – Maybe that wifi at your hotel isn’t the most secure or fast internet connection. Save some time and sanity by leveraging our Fiber Optic internet.

Hybrid Work Model

SummaryWhat is a hybrid work model? By definition, the flexible hybrid work model is a flexible work system that supports a blend of in-office, remote, and on-the-go workers. It offers employees the autonomy to choose to work wherever and however they are most productive. Hybrid Work Model – Is it for You? Are workers still finding value in in-person meetings?   A personal story from the guy writing this article. There was a time when I had a small software company. Our team 4 or 5 worked remotely.
