Why Coworking Is The Future of Work

Why Coworking Is The Future of Work

Coworking is style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity.  Individuals are usually not employed by the same person. The lure of working and collaborating in a Coworking space can be similar to the buzz of a start-up environment and quite different from the uninspiring routine of the typical office cubicle.  Although the “Coworking generation” is at the forefront of the future of work according to Google Trends it’s still only the [...]

Arrive on time. This may be obvious to most people—but some don’t realise that showing up late can not only leave a bad impression, but also throw off your entire day.

Location-based marketing is the next big thing

Over 90% of all web traffic will be video by 2025 in many developed nations. It is already the case in the UK that BBC iPlayer, NetFlix and YouTube alone account for more than 50% of the nation’s web traffic.

The new Collaborative and Sharing economy has arrived.

The new Collaborative and Sharing economy has arrived.

Make NO MISTAKE, the era of largely abundant, high-paying jobs that characterised the second half of the twentieth century is gone. Since 1983, the only segment of “jobs” to show significant growth were “Non-Routine Cognitive Jobs.” In other words: creating systems. According to a 2015 report from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers based on data from the US Census Bureau, from 1948–2000, jobs grew 1.7× faster than population. Since 2000, the population has grown 2.4× faster than [...]
