Digital platforms like Zoom and Slack enable companies to continue operating during the pandemic. After almost three years, most people know these platforms are not a replacement to the office, they are a complement to them.
Because digital platforms available today cannot fully replicate the energy of being in an office with peers. The office banter, seeing your teammates in person, the smile in your colleague’s eyes — it happens most when you’re in the office. “Water-cooler moments” haven’t translated well into the digital realm.
That is not to say people should go to the office everyday. The hybrid work model has gained a lot of traction over the last year, and for good reason. Along with hybrid work, coworking has become a clear top choice for those seeking increased flexibility in how and where they work.
Early on in the pandemic, many wondered whether coworking spaces would survive the pandemic. Three years in and the answer is clear: coworking is here to stay and, in fact, it’s booming.
Coworking is on the rise. Here’s why: You can’t predict the future, and coworking spaces provide the flexibility needed during uncertain times (like a pandemic). So, rather than signing a lease for an office that’s years long, you can rent an office month to month. (There are options to sign for longer if you’d like, but coworking provides a flexible, ready to use option that corporate spaces do not.)
With coworking, you can keep a hybrid work schedule while enjoying time out of the house. Whether you want to work from your office two days per week, or every day, there’s likely a coworking plan that will fit your needs. Flexibility is the name of the game.
Business owners can provide a shared office for their employees, giving team members the option of a designated space. It’s also great for hosting holiday parties in a safe, controlled environment.
Networking opportunities come from community. Coworking is a great way to connect. Real estate companies, freelancers, independent contractors and technology companies are just a few of the many networks who participate in coworking.
The nature of work is rapidly changing. It’s about time to strategize with the team… in person.

Arlington and its neighbors have become more segregated in the last 10 years while fair housing legislation at the state level faces significant roadblocks.
