What is a coworking space?

Coworking is a new form of work organization that allows you to be independent while leaving aside the disadvantages of working from home. The principle of a coworking space is simple: we bring everyone together in ample shared space and let the magic happen. Beyond the obvious savings that such an organization allows (rent and shared miscellaneous costs), it is above all an opportunity for meetings sometimes decisive in a career. Coworking is the best way to develop your professional network and foster the synergies that often lead to collaborations.

Who can benefit from the coworking space?

Coworking spaces are suitable for all professional categories and all sectors, although often focused on the digital or NICT professions. They are particularly ideal for independent consultants and large groups who wish to get closer to startups… For economic reasons, comfort, but also strategic.

How does coworking space work?

Most coworking spaces operate on a subscription basis. Different packages are offered to users to best suit their needs. Our partners for hourly, daily, monthly, or yearly packages, with particularly attractive rates for regular coworkers, but the coworking space selected by Themis Partner always keeps a few vacant places for occasional users.

Each space has its own rules. Beyond two or three basic recommendations (respect your neighbors and the equipment, no cigarettes inside, etc.), the user must, most of the time, bring their computer. That said, only one rule prevails in coworking space: conviviality. Be gentle and open-minded; you’re not there to sulk in your corner! With coworking, sharing is king.

How to choose your coworking space?

To guide you in your choice, here are five criteria to keep in mind:

1. Accessibility

To simplify the lives of the most remote professionals, many coworking spaces have been set up around the BTS and public transport. Others have settled in rural areas and welcome freelancers, micro-entrepreneurs as well as salaried teleworkers. Also, pay attention to the opening hours. Depending on your needs, weekend or evening access will be useful. It’s not necessarily possible everywhere.

2. Specialization by profession

Great haunt of web developers or other supergeeks, coworking has been able to open up to a wide range of occupations. Many are now generalists. Others specialize in sectors such as the social and solidarity economy (coaching and recruiting), marketing, information, and communication. Specialized or not, most of these spaces do not advocate inter-self. They generally accept coworkers who go beyond their standards to diversify their community.

3. Services

Shared cuisine, concierge, festive events: few coworking is confined to the rental of tables and chairs. “The provision of a personal locker to safely store personal belongings or a” phone box “where you can make your phone calls in complete confidentiality is one of the services appreciated. In Bangkok, many coworking spaces are now welcome still a majority of customers offer support in the form of training workshops and actions to develop the network of its tenants. If conferences and professional meetings are on the program in many places, others rely on services more fun.

4. The community

Networking is undoubtedly one of the main reasons for coworking. In notable brands, you will rub shoulders with a multitude of professionals. Convenient for making contacts or considering new business. The added value of these spaces is based on interaction.

5. Prices

For sedentary coworkers, the more advantageous monthly formulas are spreading. “The prices vary between open office space. The prices vary according to the cities, and their transferability. For this purpose, Bangkok regroups the most valuable free space.

What services are offered in a coworking space?

Desktop: What coworkers look for above all in the coworking space, you have created a place where they can work. It is, therefore, essential to put a work station at their disposal before anything else. Depending on your coworking layout, you can offer closed offices or open offices in open space. The closed offices will correspond to professions held by professional secrecy such as lawyers. Simultaneously, the public spaces will be entirely suitable for freelancers, freelancers or small businesses are looking for significant synergy effects.

Whatever the type of office offered, two formulas exist for renting workstations: a reserved and exclusive workstation without limit during opening hours. The coworker pays the same rate each month regardless of the time spent in coworking. On the contrary, the nomadic package allows coworkers to pay only for the coworking space time. Therefore, they do not have a reserved workstation but settle where they wish within the limit of available places. They then pay by the hour or by the day.

To set up these workstations, the coworking manager must provide coworkers with desks, chairs, lamps, electrical outlets, or storage spaces to leave their personal belongings in a secure place when they are away.

Office and telecommunication tools: For coworkers to work in the best possible conditions, coworking must also provide them with a certain number of office and communication tools. The coworker’s number 1 work tool is the internet connection. The coworking manager must ensure that he can offer a quality wifi connection regardless of the number of coworkers present in the space. Coworking can also offer coworkers a printing and photocopying service. The latter will have a high cost in the operating expenses of coworking. Consequently, to amortize this cost, this service is offered either for a fee or free of charge, but with a value that is mostly reflected in the price of the monthly plan.

Finally, access to telephone lines can also be a significant asset. These can be common to all users. In this case, they will often be in a soundproof room and will mainly allow you to make calls. However, they can also be private and dedicated to a single user. Some occupations that use the phone extensively or need to be reached on a different line from their cell phone may need this type of service.

Services meeting specific needs for coworkers’ activities: Another way to distinguish yourself from competing for coworking and to satisfy coworkers are to provide them with several premium services linked to their businesses and to which they will have access to self-service. For example, a 3D printer or laser cutters will attract several engineers, during a photo the studio will appeal to image specialists. These offers can be included in the monthly package or offered as a supplement.

Meeting rooms: Whether independent coworkers to receive their clients or companies to meet during meetings or brainstorming, all will need at one time or another a meeting room away from the open space. Furnished with large tables, chairs, video conferencing equipment, and flipchart, it is essential in any coworking.

A domiciliation service: Offering a business domiciliation service can also appeal to a large number of coworkers. This service consists of providing a professional address to coworkers by allowing them to set up their business at the address of coworking. Thanks to this, they will gain significant credibility. Their customers and prospects and will no longer be disturbed. If you want to know more about the measures to be put in place to be able to offer a business domiciliation service, see our article dedicated to this subject.

Marketing and accounting services: To allow coworkers to devote themselves entirely to their activity without worrying about their accounting or marketing strategy, you can offer them to take care of it for them at preferential rates. This then implies for you to set up a partnership with an accounting firm or a communication agency.

What is the cost of a coworking space?

From an internal point of view, coworking spaces derive their income from rental and the sale of additional services or food and drinks (when they are not included in the basic packages).
