The Importance of Coworking Passports
7/26/2019 | By Kyle Edriel Tomagan
Coworking space is the first frontier of work flexibility. It allows professionals to work on the go without being confined to the walls of a traditional office. These spaces have even become so popular that the office space industry sees more than one thousand coworking areas open worldwide on an annual basis.
But while many shared workspace providers say they are flexible, they only fit the conventional sense of flexible and mobile work. This is because only a few actually provide multi-space access to clients. In a rapidly shifting professional landscape where flexibility is now a top priority, prospective coworkers must find a provider that offers access to more than one coworking station. This is where coworking passports come in.
What is Coworking Passport?
Coworking passports are arrangements that allow clients to access more than one coworking area owned by a certain provider. These can take the form of cards, replica passports, while other agreements just allow clients to freely shift from their original shared desk space to a different one. This setup is ideal for startup teams and freelancers as it is economical, flexible, and provides supreme office accessibility.
Having a coworking passport allows clients to save up on open-office costs. Instead of having to pay multiple office providers for hot desking, these passports allow clients to work out of any shared desk space owned by the provider of their choice, all for one payment.
Coworking passports also reinforce the idea of flexible work. With 85 percent of new employees preferring offices with mobile layouts, companies and office space operators need to begin investing in open-office style designs and start taking walls down. With a designated passport, employees now have the freedom to work anywhere that’s convenient, making teams more mobile than ever before through accessible offices.
The Problem With Most Coworking Providers
While the idea of working anywhere is groundbreaking, there is a large problem that plagues many coworking providers: lack of coverage.
Various flexible workspace operators are unable to provide coworking passports because most of these providers manage a single shared desk facility. Meanwhile, there are also providers who can accommodate coworkers across a few select locations only, so coverage is still a problem.
