Co-working spaces are an established practice today. But have you heard of co-napping? One such is operated in Bangkok. At Nap Lab, they believe that if you take a nap while working, you will increase your productivity. Thus, in addition to office desks, they also provide office beds.
Coworking especially draws in people from IT, both freelancers and employees. And flexible offices are also of growing importance for companies that have just entered the Czech market, says Jana Gerhátová, manager of the Czech branch of Business Link, a working space provider.
With the worldwide boost of coworking spaces, it is no wonder that even niche oriented workspaces appear. There are specialized coworkers for IT specialists, graphic designers, writers or salesmen. A bit more controversial approach has The Wing chain, whose specialty is not niche, but gender.
Coworking giant Spaces opened its first location in the Czech Republic in October. It's housed within an elegant building Albatros on the historic Narodni Street in Prague covering 3.500 sqm on 8 floors and offering more than 400 work stations.
Business Link, housed at the new Visionary building, is Prague’s largest provider of coworking spaces and premium offices. It offers infrastructure for freelancers, startups, small businesses, and corporate representatives. What do they appreciate about it? And what do they find to be the biggest advantages of a coworking environment?
