Most Convenient Co-working Spaces in the East

 

Much has changed about the way we live since Covid-19 struck.  Forced into the confines of our homes in the past couple of years,  many of us learned to adapt to the “new normal” which included working remotely during lockdowns. Fast forward to 2022,  we find ourselves emerging into the post pandemic world more open minded about the way we work. Wanting and needing to commute less, many are finding alternatives to the traditional offices we once knew.

In just two years from now, the number of coworking spaces worldwide is expected to exceed by double and reach a high of 40,000. These membership-based workspaces efficiently allow diverse groups of employees and other independent professionals to work together in a communal setting, often providing the flexibility of location for its members to work from different branches. Within our tiny red dot that is Singapore, it is a previously popular sight to see these spaces exist within high-rise, Grade A buildings, commonly in the Central Business District area where entertainment outlets are aplenty. However, these establishments are keeping up with new preferences and slowly finding their way into the heartlands.  

In the  East, we see the likes of coworking giants JustCo and Regus planting roots amongst other independent operators. Catering well to businesspeople, entrepreneurs, and start-ups, these spaces allow a workspace that is away from, yet close to, home.
