So what exactly is Coworking? In a nutshell it’s a relaxed yet professional style of working that involves sharing a workplace with multiple companies from differing industries. Some say it’s foundations lay in Berlin’s hacker movement back in the mid-1990s. It’s a collaborative, social form of working that addresses the lack of productivity experienced by so many home-based workers and offers a welcome alternative to the often unsocial and cellularised business centres that were very much the norm back then. Today, Coworking is as popular as ever, with thousands of serviced office providers offering space around the globe; each one providing the community aspect that so many seek to promote productivity.
