It’s the hot new way of getting work done. Coworking is a trend that is rapidly growing globally, and as its gaining popularity, many people are asking the question; what is coworking? This emerging industry revolves around the general idea of people gathering in one neutral space to work. These people come from different places and are working on different projects. It differs itself to a normal office space in that the people that you find in a coworking environment do not work for the same company. So why is everyone flocking to their nearest trendy coworking hub?

There are many benefits of utilising a shared space for different types of workers. Let’s have a look at what it could mean for you.
