With the latest developments in technology and the internet, the twenty-first century is so close to being named as the “era of digitalisation”. Within this period, the older working conditions and employment structures are being abolished gradually. A vast number of people do not want to remain in the same office for their entire life. While it is super easy for people to explore the far edges of the world and collect information on alternative places, it is challenging to keep employees in the same office and expect them to do the same job for years. Therefore, the number of people who quit their nine to five regular office jobs increases day by day.
Redefining the Old Working Structures: Co-Working
Imagine that you can choose the office where you would like to work. There will be no team leaders harassing you to do your job more efficiently, plus there will be plenty of creative people around you. Does this not sound nice? With the increasing interest in sectors such as email marketing, social media management, online web development and graphic design, the number of companies which offer remote work or freelancing opportunities has skyrocketed lately. The individuals began benefitting from these remote or freelance opportunities in a co-working space. Therefore, a co-working space can be defined as a communal business area for people who do not want to stick with the strict rules of a specific company. Instead, they work on an individual basis, while co-operating with other co-workers from different sectors and backgrounds.
Goodbye to Corporate Life
In this era of digitalisation, people have started to demand more holidays and better salaries. Since these two are not offered at the same time in a corporate business environment, high-skilled workers have begun to live a freelancer life, changing places within a couple of months. Their office remains to be a co-working space at a different location.
