With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, it is safe to say that the holiday season is upon us. There are parties, days off, and endless treats in sight.

With a shared workspace, you can enjoy the holidays without worrying if everything at the office is ok. Here are four ways a shared office space solution can help you prepare for the holidays.
One of the myths about coworking is that it is for freelancers and start-ups. People envision open floor plans that only work if you fly solo or just have a small team. In reality, coworking is for companies of any size.

For most people, Memorial Day weekend symbolizes the unofficial start of summer. It rings in the season of lazy days, BBQs, and more. When the weather gets nice it’s not uncommon to stare longingly out your window, wondering when the weekend will come so you can lay out by a pool. Summer is a hard season at work. Between people taking vacations, kids being out of school, and the tempting warm temperatures, it can be extremely difficult to stay motivated at your desk. Here are some tips on how to enjoy the summer months while still staying on track at work!
Your office is meant to facilitate your business- to make it easier, more efficient and comfortable for you and your employees. This means that the biggest downfall for your business could actually be the space you are in! Inflexible workspaces can stifle creativity, make expansion difficult and impede employees from doing their best work. But most importantly, wasting space means you are wasting money. These four solutions will help you make the most of your space and create an office that people look forward to working in.
The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, but not everyone can simply leave their office worry-free. While we all wish to leave our work at the office, the holiday season poses a challenge to companies, and especially small business owners, everywhere: how can I leave work for a week and keep the business going?
Sitting in the same office space all day, ever day, can make it abundantly clear why finding an environment that strikes a balance between productivity and comfort is crucial to the health of your employees and your business. As employees feel more obligated to be “plugged in” and “contactable” outside of the normal 9-5 routine, it is also critical for a business to find meaningful ways to promote the physical and mental health of its employees outside of the office as well. Shared office spaces and the ever-growing number of amenities they can provide are one solution that can keep your company happy and healthy without sacrificing efficiency.
For early-stage companies reliant on outside funding, the massive up-front costs of acquiring your own office space can prove a seemingly unsustainable burden. When trying to exercise as much financial prudence as possible, the last thing you want to do is take on a long-term liability, but with a traditional lease, you’re left with little choice. Your company has to work somewhere, but how can you manage cash flows appropriately while still getting the environment you need? Shared office space can prove the perfect solution for startups, keeping costs low over time, and even lower up front.
