A café is not a shared office space or coworking space in San Francisco

Whether you need a workplace for an hour, a day, or many times per month, we have the plan for you. Open work areasprivate offices, or meeting rooms, all with lightning-fast WiFi, printer access, and coffee that doesn’t cost $3 a cup.

The Basics of Coworking in San Francisco and Walnut Creek

Co working continues to increase in popularity as it allows for shared office space, yet everyone engages in their own activities and those sharing our office space in San Francisco or Walnut Creek, CA. typically don’t work for the same organization. Many independent contractors, professionals working from home, and those who travel a great deal make use of coworking spaces as it gives them the opportunity to interact with others while still handling their job duties. The benefit of coworking is that it allows people who are like minded to occupy the same space and pull energy from each other to stay motivated. There are many others benefits of working in this manner that one should consider when determining if this option is right for them.

Often, when one works from home or another location rather than a traditional office, he or she encounters many distractions. This may be neighbors dropping by to visit, not understanding the person is actually doing a job just as they would at an office, or it may be friends calling to chat, assuming that working from home means a person has time to visit as if they didn’t have a job. For others, the pile of laundry waiting to be done or the project that one started over the weekend, but didn’t finish may distract the worker from doing his or her job. This isn’t an issue when one chooses to make use of coworking options at one of The Third Workplace locations in California.

Depending on the size of the office space, the entire coworking organization may be dedicated to one industry or the space may be divided into separate areas, each one revolving around a particular sector. The advantage of this is one has others to bounce ideas off of and the workers tend to build a community. This concept began in San Francisco in 2005 by a gentleman named Brad Neuberg and it continues to grow and spread across the nation, due in part to the rise in telecommuting opportunities.

Some workers decide to cowork to receive access to equipment out of their price range. Many coworking spaces have printers, copiers, fax machines and more for use by those renting the space. Others cowork to take advantage of special events, such as brown bag lunches featuring guest speakers. When choosing office space, workers need to ask about the various features and amenities they don’t have access to at home or their normal work area. Be aware that some spaces only offer access to these things for members.

Certain coworking locations San Francisco offer memberships, and these memberships vary greatly in terms of what they provide. Membership rates vary also, based on what the person is looking for. Some wish to cowork twice a month while others prefer to cowork two days of every week. The membership level selected may also determine the working space a person receives, what amenities they get at no additional charge, and things of that nature. One thing to consider when selecting a membership level is the amount of interaction one has with clients and customers. Will a separate space be needed when a client or customer comes? If so, make sure the membership level offers space for these times. In addition, one needs to make sure clients and customers have adequate parking or easy access to public transportation.

Who uses shared office space in San Francisco?

Those who choose to making use of shared office space tend to be in the late twenties to mid thirties and the majority are men. Most work in a creative industry or in the media, while more than half freelance, rather than working for someone else. Those who make use of coworking state they feel socially and financially secure. How does one go about choosing a space which meets their needs?

Third workplace should be your first choice when choosing a coworking space, the worker should have all the amenities they wish to have. We offer conference rooms and other spaces for private meetings. Consider what amenities are desired in a coworking space as they differ significantly in this area. Thanks to the popularity of this work opportunity, most workers will find shared office space which meets their needs exactly.
