The Difference Between Coworking and a Shared Office Solution

COWORKING

When looking for office space, confusion often arises between “coworking” and “shared office solution” space, and this is because the two terms are similar in meaning. Many believe these two words describe the same working environment. The answer is both “Yes” and “No,” and here is why in our opinion: these words represent a way one can “interact” with an office—confused yet? Here is our explanation between a coworking space and a shared office solution.

What Is a Shared Office Solution?

Shared Office Solution is defined online as “A concept that allows companies who own or manage an office, that have redundant office space to share or rent the workstations or self-contained units to smaller companies looking for flexible workspace.” Meaning, individual offices are rented by various tenants, and the common areas of the office, receptionist, coffee station, copying machine, etc., are shared by all occupants.

What Is Coworking?

A Google search of coworking provides this explanation, “the use of an office or other working environment by people who are self-employed or working for different employers, typically so as to share equipment, ideas, and knowledge.” A coworking environment is an ample open space with open desks and tables where individuals can work and interact with others. Picture a cubical office space with the dividers removed.

Can Office Sharing and Coworking Exist Together?

The exciting thing about a shared office solution vs. coworking — and one of the factors that contribute to the confusion surrounding it all — is that the two work arrangements can exist together in the same space, and they do at Work Webb.

Work Webb provides both shared office solutions and coworking options to their tenants. We have separate office spaces in varying sizes for our clients on a virtual, part-time, and full-time basis, as well as a large coworking space. Most options come with the use of physical address, directory listing, and mail service, as well as office amenities like a coffee station, kitchen area, and receptionist on staff. We have two great locations conveniently located in Daytona Beach and Melbourne, Florida. Whether you are visiting the area and need a professional space to work while on vacation or live here and need an affordable and professional office for your business, Work Webb has a option.

What Our Clients Say

Adrian Sinden

As a small business owner myself and a business consultant of over 15 years standing, I cannot speak highly enough of Work Webb in Daytona Beach. Not only is the location perfect for downtown meetings but parking is plentiful and the staff and variable rates first class and a match for any budget. It is with great pleasure that I can recommend Heidi’s solution for small business owners in the area and fully endorse Work Webb.
