office shared space

Do offices with shared spaces create distractions?

The offices shared spaces are a trend for many years, and presented today as a clear alternative to work at home.

More and more professionals who have found it necessary to work from home are considering making the leap to these spaces to find a quiet place in which to increase their work productivity.

Offices in shared spaces allow you to work without distractions , but with a lower financial outlay compared to the cost of renting your own office.

In addition to freelancers, freelancers and entrepreneurs , these spaces are perfect for companies that have a staff that needs mobility and flexibility.

Distractions in shared spaces?

Contrary to what some people think, shared spaces do not create distractions . The truth is that, in many cases, they even avoid them.

This is because they allow you to work in a quiet environment, away from the personal and family distractions that occur most often when working at home: someone who wants to talk to you, an unforeseen noise, children running around the house , a bell that rings, a pause to go to the fridge, a few ergonomic furniture, etc.

However, in these offices the other people also go to work : they will not be a distraction, but will help you create an environment that is more conducive to work and more productive.

Nor will you have to endure endless telephone conversations or video calls, since the best offices with shared space already have solutions to avoid these situations.

Avoid distractions with First Workplaces Phone Booths

In Spain, up to 70% of those surveyed state that they prefer open offices, but for 78% of those surveyed, what bothers and distracts them the most are loud telephone conversations .

In the First Workplaces spaces, distractions are avoided thanks to the Phone Booths, which are acoustic booths designed for making calls and video calls.

Private meeting rooms can also be reserved for meetings while the other users of the space quietly focus on their tasks.

In addition, there are also informal chat rooms available (armchairs, terraces, dining rooms …) so that workers can socialize and cultivate their relationships without hindering the work of others.

Thus, there will be nothing to distract you so that you can carry out your work in a much more productive way and with maximum privacy, when you require it.

1. You have everything you need

2. More open and cosmopolitan environment

3. It’s easier to network

One of the advantages of working in these offices is that you can meet professionals from the same sector or others with whom to create strategic alliances today or in the future. It is an opportunity to practice networking without leaving your workspace.

4. Young people prefer coworking

The largest workforce by 2030 is expected to be Generation Z and Millennials, younger generations who see work differently and who prefer to work in a shared environment where they have greater learning opportunities and flexibility, a supportive community, opportunities to make contacts and a place to feel comfortable.

In this way, co-working spaces can also help you attract the best young talent.

5. Avoid the loneliness of the freelance

In a study published in the Harvard Business Review study, Coworking Is not About Workspace – It’s About Feeling Less Lonely , 83% of those consulted say they feel less alone since they joined a shared space and 89% feel more happy ever since.

6. A flexibility solution for companies

It is an ideal formula to optimize costs in companies that have a mobile workforce, that needs or wants to work from different locations, or that combines the home office with face-to-face work.

For example, an employee can go to another city to make a commercial visit and telecommute comfortably from a First center in that city.

7. You will not run out of place

Working from an office with shared space does not mean having to get up early to find a good place. At First Workplaces we have an app that allows you to reserve your job in advance so that you are sure that you will find a place available as soon as you arrive.
