As we're approaching the final month of the year, some of us can't help but to be in a jovial mood as holidays are approaching. Even without paying attention to the calendar, it's really easy to tell that Christmas and New Years are right around the corner: the glimmering lighting decoration, Wham!'s Last Christmas on repeat, and your Starbucks coffee coming in a red cup really sets the tone for festivity!

At some point we've all experienced meetings that drag on forever, meetings that lack an agenda, and meetings that fail to have an actionable conclusion. Don't worry, you're not alone, the statistics have spoken. In a survey of 182 senior managers across different industries, 71% said meetings are unproductive and 65% said meetings keep them from completing their work. Having said that, meetings are essential and beneficial... if done correctly. It helps to ensure alignment and communication in the organization. It also fosters teamwork, creativity, and proper information exchange amongst the other known benefits. The challenge is how do you realize them. Meetings are often done too often, badly timed, and badly run leading to an unproductive meeting.

Congratulations! If you're reading this means you've stepped into the future... of workspaces or perhaps you are already here. As cliche as it sounds, there's some merit to that. According to a report by JLL, up to 30% of commercial real estate could be flexible by 2030! The demand for flexible office is also likely to pick up quickly as the startup and gig economy continue to flourish globally. Let's not forget about the fact that the big boys in the industry like IBM, UBS, and Facebook have joined the party. This is a telltale sign that demand from large companies is likely to pick up. For modern Small Medium Businesses (SME), a flexible workspace is a leaner alternative compared to a conventional setup. In comparison, flexible workspaces are far more flexible, affordable, and readily available. For large corporations, one appeal may lie in the hub and spoke model, meaning, their employees are able to work beyond the boundaries of their organization.

Flexible space in Jakarta has experienced 16% growth in the last 12 months. As it stands, Jakarta is one of the leading cities in the Southeast Asian region for coworking spaces and serviced offices with a total of 146 centres. With so many options available, the common questions we get from people are "What is the best coworking space?" or "Which coworking space do you recommend?" Our short answer is "it depends." In truth, the perfect coworking space doesn't exist, the perfect one is probably the one that ticks all the boxes you need. One of the most, if not the most important factor that we notice when people look for an office space in Jakarta is location, so let's talk about that shall we?
PAPER defining work and TOAST representing food, that was the original concept of coworking when the first ever coworking space operator PAPER + TOAST landed in Malaysia in 2010.

Thanks to the the coworking boom in Indonesia, especially in Jakarta, you can find coworking spaces and serviced offices at pretty much every corner of Jakarta, well maybe not every corner but in areas like SCBD, Sudirman, Thamrin and Kuningan, you're spoiled for choice. The major CBD areas in Jakarta are saturated with top flexible workspace brands such as WeWork, COCOWORK, and IWG (Regus). Fierce competition drives many other operators to establish a presence elsewhere, and in all fairness, it does make good business sense. Not every company is looking to secure a luxurious office space on the 47th floor, overlooking the Jakarta skyline... let's not kid ourselves, anyone would jump at the chance if the budget forbids!
