For various reasons, many people are electing to use their talents and experience to start up their own businesses, or to work as freelancers. For instance, they might have been laid-off from work and not be willing or able to relocate their families to seek work in another town. They might be tired of the constant commuting in heavy traffic to and from work every day, or have a desire to be their own boss or to create more work/life balance and flexibility.
Whatever the reasons, while some might work from home to save costs, others might find this unsatisfactory due to isolation or distractions, the desire for a more professional set up, or the need to take their business to the next level. However, leasing a business premises might not always be a viable option. This is where office sharing through office workstation rental can fill the gaps.
In the small business world, sharing office space is a growing trend in the 21st century. In a city like Melbourne the advantages of doing so are numerous, including:
- The opportunity to work closer to home, thereby reducing travel time and costs.
- Collaborating and networking with like-minded people in the shared office facility.
- Avoiding heavy traffic and / or public transport delays.
- Lower parking costs.
- Less use of fossil fuels, lowering the impact on the environment and the carbon footprint.
- Contributing to the local economy.
