Many entrepreneurs and freelancers have all asked themselves this question at some point: “why work at a coworking Melbourne office when I can just work from home or a café?”. Well, the answer is in the data. According to GCUC (Global Coworking Unconference Conference), 25, 968 coworking spaces are estimated to be open worldwide by 2022, compared to 2015 which saw 7, 805 opened. This means around 2, 595 coworking spaces have been opened each year since 2015.
If those statistics indicate that coworking spaces are increasing in popularity, then what is the argument for the benefits of working from home as opposed to coworking Melbourne offices? Working from home may be cheaper, but it can come at a greater cost in other areas. To help provide context to the argument, let’s take a look at the benefits of working from home compared to a coworking space when it comes to office and IT equipment.
Working from Home
A popular argument is that making calls from home is easier than a coworking Melbourne office, as you won’t have to deal with the noise of an office full of co-workers. Of course, this is assuming you don’t have any family members, flatmates, pets, children or noisy neighbours at home. Working from a mobile phone may be handy, but it can give your business an unprofessional image when advertising a mobile phone number.
Some people may think that all you need is a laptop, a mobile phone and an internet connection to easily work from home. This can help, assuming you have a strong and secure internet connection and are working with solid IT equipment that can support your workload needs. Also, if your equipment breaks down or experiences an IT failure, then your business can suffer until you have fixed the issue.
