Coworking spaces have become an integral part of the modern business world. They offer entrepreneurs, startups, freelancers, and even enterprises a flexible and creative work environment that doesn’t exist in a traditional office setting. At Venture X, we are a step ahead of coworking trends for 2022, ensuring our office space franchisees are set up for success.
There are many reasons people look to Venture X as their choice for coworking and networking. Regardless of the myriad reasons, we know that certain trends will contribute to even more coworking opportunities in 2022, all of which Venture X has covered.
Increased collaboration with other businesses
One of the most popular trends in coworking is increased collaboration with other businesses. There are many motives for companies to choose to invest in coworking spaces, such as the flexibility they provide and their ability to foster creativity and innovation.
Venture X offers everything from flexible office space for enterprises to private desk and even Community Membership options, where members can rent an office at an hourly rate but still take advantage of all of their location’s public and members-only networking events. This allows franchisees to continue building long-lasting relationships with their customers and boost sales over time.
More creative and flexible options for coworking spaces
The rise of coworking spaces is partially a result of people’s desire to work in a flexible and creative environment that works for them – and increasingly, as a result of physical offices and locations having shut their doors, leaving many employees seeking a home base outside their home. More than just a sugar-dusted table in a coffee shop, these spaces offer entrepreneurs, startups, enterprises, and freelancers the opportunity to find a workspace that fits their needs.
At Venture X, we know that all flexible office space is not created equally. Our spaces, which allow for flexible terms and a variety of membership levels, also provide professional networking opportunities and a host of amenities that people can’t find elsewhere, a key differentiator for our franchisees. And further, Venture X is able to tout the benefit of global connection – franchisees can offer members of one location temporary guest privileges at other locations around the world.
Increased focus on location-independent work
Coworking spaces are becoming increasingly popular. In fact, the number of people working in a shared office or coworking space worldwide is predicted to double between 2021 and 2024, topping out at 5 million people. Coworking space is a key component of location-independent work, which includes telecommuting and flexible schedules that allow people to work when they want and where they want.
Focus on health and wellness
Health and wellness as a category was one of the driving forces behind coworking spaces from the start. More businesses are realizing that they need to invest in a healthy work environment; this is especially true as more people freelance or land in hybrid work environments, where they combine their time in a physical location and anywhere else. As a result, many people are discerning when it comes to the amenities they consider essential, from healthy snacks to on-site or close-by gyms and even environmentally conscious cleaning practices.
Venture X franchisees can capitalize on this trend by showcasing their location’s health and wellness benefits, including outdoor space, exercise equipment, or even a hosted event on-site focused on eating healthier.
