CO-WORKING SPACES MARBELLA
Remote Working in Style
Responding to the demands of modern working – today’s workforce is not necessarily bound to the 9 to 5 and an increasing number of professionals are splitting their time between an office and a more flexible working style from home or a convenient location, such as an internet café or a custom-built co-working space. Are you looking for the best co-working spaces in Marbella?
The rise of remote working and hybrid work – a blend of office and remote working – a trend consolidated during lockdown, has created a new wave of digital nomads, free-spirited professionals and entrepreneurs jetting off to sunnier climes armed with a laptop. Growing numbers of remote working employees and entrepreneurs around the world are adopting a flexible working model, mixing it up with working days spent in different locations, facilitating new markets and contacts and networking with like-minded individuals in design-led surroundings conducive to creativity and efficiency.
Co-working spaces are nothing new – chains such as Regus have been operating for decades giving much needed office and meeting space to travelling professionals and fledgling entrepreneurs. What is true, however, is that co-working spaces have evolved, improved and become tailored to the new working models currently sweeping the globe.
Productivity is said to improve with co-working, and clearly there are many benefits, particularly for anyone new to remote or tele-working. Among the benefits are avoiding the distractions of working at home and putting structure and routine in your working day.
Similarly, as a pleasing environment – co-working spaces range from the merely practical to the downright luxurious – and foster an ambience of collaboration & support. A new environment can stimulate your creativity, while providing a cost-effective way to access an office environment, make contacts and expand your network.
