Not too long ago, being employed meant traveling to your office five days a week, grinding from 9 AM to 5 PM. Today, however, we’ve seen a dramatic shift in the workplace. We now live in an era where a flexible workspace is no longer a far-off idea—it’s the new normal. In fact, there are currently over 14,000 coworking spaces around the world.
The concept presents a social, collaborative, and engaging ambiance for modern employees. Although, employers and employees best be reminded that since they’ll connect their devices to a shared space, they must also be equipped with tools that can protect your personal data.
For companies and businesses, coworking spaces offer many economic and practical benefits. For instance, you can grow or reduce your operations at minimal cost. Also, you won’t have to stress about stable internet or other office equipment since both are readily available in flexible workspaces.
As technology evolves, the way modern employees work will continue to change. Check out the visual guide below that illustrates the history and development of flexible workspaces.
