A 2013 global study found that 74% of coworkers are more productive compared to working independently. More than two-thirds feel more creative and collaborative. If we were using emojis, this is where we’d use that wide-eyed “this is surprising” one.
Are you honestly that shocked by these statistics? Imagine your past experience working from home. It probably looks like this:
You sit down at your office desk — or lo and behold, the kitchen table — with a freshly brewed cup of coffee ready to work on that groundbreaking mobile app. Suddenly, your toddler has a meltdown because he doesn’t want to wear socks today. Back in your office space — the kitchen — your children, or better yet, roommates, begin making breakfast, and you find yourself cleaning the spilled pancake batter that covers the countertop. This continues, and before you know it, your coffee is tragically cold, and you’ve lost a valuable part of the workday.
No, these statistics really aren’t shocking after all, but what’s the alternative? We came up with two solid reasons why coworking space is the best work from home alternative.
Coworking spaces generate productivity
We hear a lot about “productivity” and “focus” when talking to working professionals. We hear they are both more focused and more productive in a coworking space than at home. And truthfully, it makes sense if we think about and cringe at that earlier scenario.
There are far fewer distractions, and you’re surrounded by hard-working, like-minded people doing exactly the same thing as you. Plus, we streamline the office process for you at Studio Workspaces.

A work from home alternative that leads to more business opportunity
There’s more to coworking than just productivity. If you’re going to spend money on a coworking space, you want to know how it affects your bottom line. So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty, the cash.
A survey from Coworker reports that 4 in 10 respondents pursued new business ventures with someone they met at a coworking space. There is massive value in physically being with working professionals from a handful of industries. You’d never meet a potential client or have a conversation that would lead to a new business venture when you’re working from home.
