Welcome to the world of co-working spaces, a game-changing shift in the Indian workplace. The concept is straightforward: various organisations collaborate in the same shared office room. A system like this could be a game-changer for a country like India, which has a large population but limited space. Indeed, the coworking model’s suitability for our country makes one wonder why it has taken so long to arrive.
Co-working space leasing increased by 2.4 times in Mumbai, while leasing by co-working space providers increased by 43 per cent in Bengaluru. The supremacy of co-working spaces in India’s financial and information technology capitals is proof enough of their appeal to start-ups.
A seat in a co-working room costs half to one-third of the price of a typical workplace. In reality, they are at least 20% cheaper in Mumbai, Delhi, and Pune. With most co-working spaces at 85 per cent occupancy, more room providers are being enticed to join the market, attracted by the industry’s average five-month break-even period.
Co-working centres are a great bet for emerging companies because of the growing popularity of start-ups in India, as well as the cost-cutting that entrepreneurs must make during the early stages of a company. Co-working spaces are, in essence, a direct spatial representation of the changing workplace, with all required facilities offered in comfortable environments that are a welcome change from stuffy offices.
Co-working spaces appeal to aspiring entrepreneurs because of the growing interdependence of companies and the need to build workgroups for faster networking opportunities. According to a survey, over the next few years, these young professionals will account for 12-14 million seats in co-working spaces.
The Indian government must devote urgent attention to this domain and resolve its concerns, such as the time-consuming process of renting a commercial space and landowners’ inability to rent out spaces to co-working space providers due to a lack of understanding of the definition. Furthermore, the method of acquiring land ownership must be simple for consumers.
In India, the coworking industry is still in its infancy, but the scope is enormous. India is the world’s second-largest start-up centre and has the world’s second-largest freelance workforce. It’s no surprise, then, that a country’s work ethic, which is driven by the slogan “Unity in Diversity,” will be expressed microcosmically in places like a co-working space’s cafeteria, which is a melting pot of diverse tales.
