Co-working: How can it work for you?

News 4 months ago, Reading time: 2 min

We’re big believers in the benefits of co-working, but what does it really mean and why can it be so good for your business? Well, we’ve talked to the people with first-hand experience – our tenants here at Clockwise.  We’ve listened to what they have to say and can share their thoughts with you. 

1. The power of collaboration

The community spirit is strong in a co-working environment. Regular social and networking events help entrepreneurs and businesses to meet and build those all-important connections.

“I have already attended five social and networking events hosted here at Clockwise,” says entrepreneur Kieran Aitken from Orbit. “They help to bring everyone together. From a business sense it has been incredibly useful too, as I have already forged new professional relationships with fellow tenants.”

Basing yourself in a co-working space means you will likely be surrounded by like-minded people, who are equally passionate and motivated about achieving success.

2. A professional office but with lower costs

Co-working facilities make great financial sense for businesses of all sizes. Competitive pricing across the different membership levels, as well as just one fixed cost per month, ensures tenants can focus 100% on building a business.

“We were looking for a modern and reasonably-priced serviced office space,” explains Ann Love from architectural firm AHR. “We have office space with one fixed monthly overhead. It makes life – and running the business – so much easier.”

3. Flexible options for all businesses

“Clockwise is great for everything that we need. Office space is tailored exactly to what we want.”

Ben Howell from drinks and hospitality business, Cup Glasgow is so right there. Where else can you can find such a variety of flexible spaces to suit your changing business needs? Hot desk areas, breakout zones and private meeting rooms – whichever way you work, Clockwise will work with you. More than that, co-working spaces are generally open longer than traditional business offices, with some offering 24-hour access, to suit the early risers or late-night workers. That’s another massive tick in the box.

4. Vibrant, well-located and professional facilities

Clockwise is a centrally-located shared workspace that puts you right in the heart of the city. We can also help you create that all-important winning impression to secure business for you.

Over to Ann Love again from AHR. “Clockwise is perfectly situated in the city centre, with a great choice of shops, restaurants and amenities on our doorstep.  We couldn’t have picked a better spot!” 

5. The productivity bonus

Being successful when your staring out in business is all about hard work, motivation and productivity. For Kieran Aitken at Orbit, “Clockwise is a great place to work as well as a fantastic environment to meet like-minded entrepreneurs and businesses. Nowhere better!” So, whether you’re a freelancer, or if you work remotely for your company, this is a collaborative workspace that not only gets the creative juices flowing but helps to inspire focus and generate a productive energy that can drive you on to bigger and better things.
