De-Bunking the Myths about Co-Working



PLANNING YOUR 2022 BUSINESS STRATEGY, LOOKING TO ESCAPE THE ISOLATION OF THE HOME OFFICE OR COFFEE SHOP, OR MERELY CURIOUS ABOUT THE INCREASINGLY POPULAR INDUSTRY OF COWORKING SPACES? COME CHECK OUT NEWCASTLE’S NEWEST FLEXI-SPACE PROVIDER, WOTSO, AT 1 TUDOR STREET, NEWCASTLE WEST.

 

Just like the traditional workplace, coworking has evolved dramatically – no, coworking spaces aren’t just for tech start-ups anymore. Many businesses, therefore, more industries are recognising the benefits and ease of pursuing a flexible workspace arrangement: the leading benefit – flexibility. Signing five-year leases are a thing of the past. Instead, say hello to month-to-month agreements, the ability to scale as needed and the means to change your membership without any financial loss or repercussions.


WOTSO offers an alternative to the traditional office or home set up, with near-to-home locations – focusing on bringing the amenities of the CBD to suburban and regional areas of Australia. Shared amenities at your fingertips such as serviced meeting rooms, podcasting studios, workshops, events, snacks – you name it. Initially, the idea of “coworking” was sparked

to facilitate collaborative work and shared resources. To this day, flexible workspaces tap into the sharing economy. For example, why buy podcasting equipment when you can rent it on an as-needed basis without the need to purchase it, rent space permanently to store and use it, and then maintain the equipment.


The importance of flexibility in the workforce has been highlighted more than ever. Flexible workspaces offer you cost savings and convenience that are essential for small to medium enterprises. Private offices, permanent desks, daily drop-ins, bundle passes, the WOTSO Passport – the options at WOTSO are endless and genuinely flexible under no-lock in

contracts.


With site managers and receptionists available during the working day, you will always feel welcome at WOTSO. Step into the modern and exciting environment built for small to medium Aussie businesses to find a home and scale.


WOTSO DEBUNKS 5 COMMON COWORKING MYTHS

MYTH 1.

Flexi workspaces are just for freelancers and tech startups. WOTSO is agnostic to industry. WOTSO is specifically designed

to welcome all businesses and industries and ensure inclusivity. Our flexible workspace appeals to a broad audience from designers and marketers to real-estate, consulting, tradies, policy management and beyond. So yes, even if you don’t drink

double strength, oat lattes, you will still find a home at WOTSO.


MYTH 2.

You must socialise in a coworking space. Whilst WOTSO organises events, workshops, and opportunities for socialising and

networking, at the end of the day, everyone chooses WOTSO with a common purpose – to get work done. There is never an obligation to socialise or attend events.


MYTH 3.

Flexi workspaces need to be in the CBD. It only took a pandemic for the rest of the world to get behind WOTSO’s vision – WOTSO brings CBD amenities to the suburbs giving you the option to cut the commute and achieve a greater work-life balance. With more companies allowing employees to work from home, you might want to try working near home (WNH).


MYTH 4.

Flexi workspaces are not for corporates. WOTSO is for everyone. A significant portion of WOTSO members work in or service the corporate sector. Corporates can choose to have their office at WOTSO, or they may decide to purchase 100-day passes per month for their workforce to use at any one of our 19 locations that are close to their home, meaning they remove the distractions of WFH but get all the benefits of WNH.


MYTH 5.

It isn’t easy to join a coworking space. All you have to do is email, call or pop in and WOTSO will be able to answer any questions you have and organise a tour of the space. You could be working from WOTSO the day you walk in for your tour.

Bring your computer, and WOTSO will organise the rest. It’s really that easy.
