Coworking and Social Support

Coworking spaces offer a lot of benefits: one of which is the social support. Social support generally refers to different ways through which people assist each other. It has been proved that social support is good for health and well-being. Considering this fact it is important to have healthy social network in any working environment, otherwise you may fail to do your best no matter how hard you try. Let’s read what we can gain through social support in a co-working environment.

New levels of encouragement We are social creatures and we always need someone to lean on, to inspire and sometimes emotionally assist us. In a coworking environment we have got the platform to give and receive all the encouragement and emotional support we need for us and our projects.

More motivation from now on Your coworker colleagues are a completely new source of motivation for you. What else we need if not like-minded creative people full of new ideas to brighten us and fill us with much more motivation?

Reduced stress levels The presence of social network in a working environment reduces stress levels. This is a totally new working era with no competing colleagues, angry bosses and tensed relations. People tend to have weak physical health when they have long working hours. Thus, a bunch of laughter or a share of an inspiring idea will be all you need to feel relaxed and work effectively for the next long hours.

New friendships Definitely a good place to get to know like-minded people and create new friendships. Now during tensed working hours you can have someone to have short breaks with and have a chance to share your ideas and concerns.

Higher self-esteem Self-esteem is many times connected to social support level. The more support a person believes he receives, the higher his self-esteem is. Researchers have mentioned that people who are highly competent in their sphere but receive low amount of support have lower levels of self-esteem than the ones receiving more social support.

Synergies with each other’s businesses Coworking places generally offer different kinds of events, especially networking events which can be rather beneficial for your business. You will get to know the founders of many amazing projects having a chance to cooperate with them.
