How Shared Workspaces Boost Productivity, Creativity, and Community

In recent years, shared office co-working spaces have become increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional office spaces. For those who are looking to start a new business or work as a freelancer, shared office co-working spaces offer a range of benefits. If you are in New Glasgow or Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, you have access to some of the best co-working spaces in the province at Ignite Atlantic.  In this blog, we will be discussing the benefits of working in a shared office co-working space at Ignite.

Human Interaction:

Working in a shared office coworking space allows you to interact with other professionals in your field. This provides an opportunity to share ideas, collaborate on projects, and expand your network. Human interaction can help to reduce feelings of isolation and improve mental health, which is especially important for freelancers who work from home.

Access to Private Meeting Space:

Our co-working spaces have private meeting rooms that can be rented at no charge for our tenants!  This is ideal for co-workers who need to meet clients or hold team meetings. Having access to a professional meeting space can also help to build credibility with clients.

24/7 Access to Building:

For our monthly tenants, our shared office co-working spaces offer 24/7 access to the building. This means you can work at any time that suits your schedule, which is particularly useful if you work outside of traditional office hours. 24/7 access also allows you to work during weekends and public holidays if you need to meet a deadline.

Business Mailing Address:

Having a business mailing address can add legitimacy to your business. Ignite offers a mailing address that you can use for your business to all of our tenants. This means you don’t have to use your home address, which can help to maintain your privacy.

Collision Space with Organizations:

Our shared office co-working spaces in New Glasgow and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, share space with local organizations, such as Invest Nova Scotia, Pictou County Chamber of Commerce, the Western REN, and local tourism associations. This collision space provides opportunities to network, attend events, and learn from other professionals.

Working in a shared office co-working space at IGNITE offers many benefits.  Not the least of which you get to interact with our great staff!  We are here to support your entrepreneurial journey, whether that is through coaching, connecting, accessing our many programs, or just enjoying a cup of coffee together!  Hope to see you in our space soon!
