For years, researchers have been studying the effects of co-working spaces and found difference in attitudes, more meaningful work, more job control and possessing a sense of community between employees working in shared workspaces than regular offices. Studies reveal that while working in co-working spaces, startups and freelancers are now able to get affordable and flexible space whereas larger organizations are able to foster innovation in their workplaces. True freedom, mobility, meeting different people with unique skills and talents are some of the major benefits of working in a co-working space.Studies show that co-working spaces will grow from 14,411 in 2017 to just over 30,000 in 2022 and this is an average annual growth rate of 16.1 percent over the time frame.
