You don’t just want the Classic Doughnut, do you? You want it with framboise glazing, white chocolate shavings, sweet – but not too sweet – and just-out-of-the-oven fresh. Exactly the way you like it. Oh yes, you also want it in a cute little box, with a napkin, ready to go at exactly 13h24 when you swing past on your way back from lunch. Because efficiency and convenience are obviously crucial.
In today’s world there is an ever-increasing demand for flexibility and solutions that are tailored to individual preferences. We have never lived in a time where we can customise our lives quite this much! It makes sense though, because the reality is that we are all different and like to do things differently. Tailored solutions not only provide enhanced opportunities for personal satisfaction, but they also boost our productivity, comfort and convenience.
Luxembourg is a remarkable place. According to Statista, almost half of the country is made up of foreign nationals, which, as a percentage, is more than any other European country! With so much variety in cultures, languages and backgrounds also comes great diversity in the way people like to work. We are all unique, so why should we all have to conform to the same type of working environment?
Coworking spaces provide the opportunity for you to tailor your work or study surroundings like never seen before. In this article, we’ll look at just 5 of the many reasons why coworking solutions can work for you.
1. Variety to Appeal to Your Unique Work Style
In the working world, one size definitely does not fit all. While the quiet, formal atmosphere of a traditional corporate office appeals to many people, countless others find motivation and inspiration in vibrant, unusual surroundings. Working in an environment that does not resonate with you personally can cripple your productivity and effectiveness.
Coworking spaces are designed to provide a variety of working atmospheres to cater for different working styles. Each space has a unique look and feel, and even within each one there are alternative areas to cater for distinct needs.
If you want to get your creative juices flowing, you may decide to choose a place that has brass lights and bicycles on the wall. On the other hand, if you have a serious business meeting, you might want to book a meeting room with a more corporate feel.
Because our energy levels naturally fluctuate throughout the day, ranging from power periods to sluggish slumps, our needs also change. Coworking spaces offer the opportunity to benefit from high-energy environments to enhance productivity and keep motivation levels up, even when yet another cup of coffee isn’t doing the trick.
2. Flexible Hours to Suit Your Individual Schedule
Gone are the days where “nine to five” works for everyone. Some of us are night owls who like to burn the midnight oil and take a siesta during the day. Others are weekend-workers who need a place to work or study away from the many distractions and temptations that a Saturday holds.
Coworking solutions offer a reliable space where you can work according to your personal schedule and work preferences. If your peak concentration time is late at night, attempting to type silently with the light off, trying your best not to wake the kids, dog, or parrot, might not be the most convenient option…
Some of the working spaces on Deskover’s platform offer evening and weekend access, giving you the opportunity to capitalise on your prime focus time, whatever that may be.
One of the major advantages of Deskover is its unique e-access system, which allows you to self-check-in and access the coworking space with a QR code on your phone. This means you could even make a last-minute booking after hours and access the coworking space without the need for anyone to let you in.
3. Facilities to Meet Your Particular Needs
Good facilities are crucial to getting work done effectively, professionally and efficiently. While working from home may have its advantages, a home office is often not equipped with the facilities best suited for our professional needs.
Patchy wi-fi can result in cringe-worthy pauses in video-conference meetings... Poor quality printing can leave an uninspiring impression on a potential client... Laughter in the background can detract from your stern conference call... Inviting a colleague to your home for a professional business meeting could be undesirable for a million different reasons... There are endless examples of the potential inadequacies of make-shift offices!
Coworking spaces, on the other hand, are specifically designed to provide professional amenities to equip you to do what you do best, without having to waste time sorting out the basics.
Fast and dependable WiFi, high-grade printers, conference rooms, even cyber sleep pods... You can find a coworking space that ticks the boxes you need ticked.
4. Multiple Locations for Maximum Convenience
Despite Luxembourg’s relatively small size, commuting can chew into your day quite significantly. This is especially true when you have meetings or appointments scattered around the Grand Duchy, inconvenient train or bus schedules, or kids taking part in activities in another commune.
Instead of back-and-forth travelling between different areas, or hanging around the gare waiting for your train, checking into a coworking space can allow you to make the best use of your time.
The coworking locations available on Deskover’s platform are spread across the Grand Duchy, including some of the key hubs like Luxembourg City, Bonnevoie, Limpertsberg and Esch-sur-Alzette. Click here for the full map of locations to find your perfect spot.
5. Tailored Cost Options to Match Your Budget
It goes without saying that coworking spaces can be much more cost-efficient than full-time office leases, especially for small businesses, entrepreneurs, and students. The ability to choose what, where and how much you need from day to day provides the flexibility to optimise your spending and avoid wasted expenditure.
Naturally, the costs of different coworking spaces vary depending on the location and facilities on offer. Because you can book precise durations on Deskover’s platform, you don’t have to incur monthly fees for a space with a large conference room if you only need to use it twice a year. This reduces unnecessary spending on amenities you don’t need.
On the other hand, if there is a location that suits you perfectly and has all the bits and bobs that you want, you can purchase bulk packages if you are looking to save in the long run.
Because Deskover offers a centralised solution for many coworking spaces, this also simplifies booking and payments, helping you easily keep track of how much you are spending when booking working spaces or meeting rooms.
No matter who you are, how you like to work, where you live, or what your schedule looks like, coworking spaces can help you optimise your day and improve your working experience.
If you haven’t tried Deskover’s coworking solution yet, then why not give it a go? It might change the way you work forever!
