In Toronto, this includes coworking space, most business centres and shared office space providers. As corporate businesses learn more about how the flex space networking culture and entrepreneurial environment affects their employees and see the results, flexible workspace has the makings of becoming a long-term trend in this segment of the office space market.

By |July 29th, 2018|Categories: Coworking Office Space, Shared Office Space|

  Why Home Offices Should Move to an Alternative Office Space It’s true: working from the comfort of your home may be an idyllic scenario for those who are self-employed, or for online entrepreneurs running a small business with only a handful of remote employees. Depending on where you live, a home office can also spare you the time, expense and hassle of a commute.

So what makes for a sense of “community”? For some small business owners, it may mean an environment that fosters professional networking, or alleviates the isolation of an individual or home office. For others, it may mean working alongside those sharing an industry or vocation, such as tech development or remote freelancing. For still others, it may mean a sense of exclusivity, such as coworking spaces that are solely dedicated to women. Regardless of what it may mean to […]
