The small as well as big organizations are coming to demand for more space and this is giving lead to co-working rentals space. The model of shared workspace expands one’s abilities irrespective of the fact the organization is based in exposed or unexposed city.Locally, Regus, Avanta, Apeejay and DBS among others are the key contributors who are catering the needs of topnotch companies year-by-year. Referring to the past two-three year’s stats, it is visible that the industry has seen up to a 20% increase in the demand of flexible workspace by companies.Inexpensive Co-working FacilitiesIt is a boon for the start-ups that are looking for shared spaces in the core of the market and are ready to move. The business centers don’t just provide the basic facilities of networking, conference rooms, mail rooms and kitchen area,but also offers many kinds of memberships and other benefits. This sharing of workspace is a great way to save money. As Sande Golgart – Western Regional Vice President, Regus says,“It’s a blend of technology and people getting smarter about getting efficient use out of their space. Nowadays people don’t necessarily need a land line all the time that’s plugged into a wall that they have to go to and sit in front of every single day.”For the companies that work with Globally Distributed Delivery Model, it is of utmost necessity to provide a mobile workspace for its employees in different cities or countries. Even for an on-the-go entrepreneur, it would be a bad idea to invest in a full time office.Vast Scope of NetworkingThe social aspect of co-working cannot be overlooked, as people prefer an environment where they are associated with similar or different genre of people. The continuous learning helps employees in being productive and motivated. For an example: in 2012, Regus generated about $610 million revenue from its U.S. business. Post this, Regus established work spaces at 40 new locations in the U.S. and recorded the unmatchable growth in 2013.Prestigious Address in a Prominent Business AreaCompanies can pick and choose the flexible workspace on rent as per the requirement. There are options like a portion of a floor,complete floor, multiple floors and complete building on an hourly, monthly or yearly basis at a pre-fixed fee. They are suitable for companies which are not willing to invest money on a property or on committing to a long-term rental package.Shared spaces work for such companies, as they get ready-to-use offices with a prestigious address in a prominent business area. You will also get packages that includes a Business World card and office space in many locations.The access to serviced office space model also allows companies to pay only for those facilities, which they want to avail and not all.

As per global research findings, this shift towards flexible working is attracting skilled staff in companies and giving a better work-life experience.
Ditching the chair and standing up in company conferences improves higher collaboration in teams by increasing engagement and flow of ideas, researchers at Washington University have found.Sitting on your chair for long periods is the main cause for backaches and alternative health issues. However, have you ever thought that sitting on a chair for long can hamper your creativeness too? Researchers believe that!Chairs could seem like a wonderful plan for long conferences; however, they really make you territorial and groggy. As per the analysis done by Washington University academicians, standing up throughout company conferences will stimulate folks each mentally and physically. Standing meetings can make your employees more focused, alert, and artistic.Researchers at Washington University say that, “A workspace that encourages folks to stand up can lead to a lot of cooperative and artistic outputs.”But how do standing meetings improve productivity?According to the researchers, standing meetings facilitate collaboration in teams with less territoriality and more engagement. They’re physiologically activating, i.e., they get your bodies ready to work. Standing conferences additionally decrease the degree to which individuals in a group shield their own ideas from being modified by others.What should be the duration of standing meetings?The researchers at Washington University studied teams that worked for half-hour on a resourceful task of developing a university recruitment video. However, as per their analysis, the period of standing meeting typically apply to conferences that are less than one hour in duration.Why sitting during meetings make us less productive?The answer is exactly the opposite of the question mentioned above. As compared to standing conferences, people sitting during meetings are less physiologically activated and more likely to guard their individual ideas and contributions. When folks sit down in a conference room, they are accidentally taking an individual space within the room. This really ends up in a territorial mind-set than people who work in a standing meeting.What are the other aids to make meetings more productive?While the researchers didn’t analyse other aids to make meetings more productive, they still suspect that having a joint workspace like a huge touchscreen or whiteboard, on which every team member can work on, improves collaboration.If you’ve any idea that can help individuals to improve their productivity, then please feel free to share with us.
