Coworking on the rise
Young self-employed workers are opting to making ends meet by sharing offices with others - or living with them
By Joe Wickman MORE and more young entrepreneurs in Castellón are opting to work in shared offices with others as a way to save costs.
This is the rationale behind coworking, a modality that allows several self-employed workers to further their own businesses under the same roof
hether by force or of their own free will, numerous young people are self employed and are trying to either carry out their jobs successfully or ensure their businesses are profitable. With rental prices soaring, coworking has emerged as a viable alternative as it allows entrepreneurs to pay under €200 a month instead of a full rent plus electricity and water bills.
Coworking offices will typically offer its tenants an individual, private spot in a large room and the ability to use a shared meeting room, training room and an area for food and drinks.
As well as sharing the workplace physically, those who make use of this method also stress the importance of synergy, as this alternative allows similar-minded entrepreneurs to bounce ideas off each other or collaborate with others on projects they may be initiating.
This, in turn, has led to ‘coliving’, a modality whereby ‘coworkers’ live in the same house. This enables them to share costs while developing similar projects and sharing ideas or ways to improve their businesses. Unemployment has increased by 1,254 people in Castellón province in September. Employment figures for the month were released this week, and they verify that the summer spike in job creation goes away along with the sun. What is even more concerning is that this figure easily surpasses the country average, as the 1,254 new jobless people represent a 3.25% drop, while the nation’s average sits at 0.64%. Furthermore, only 783 jobs disappeared in September last year, indicating that 2018 has been particularly harsh in this regard. W .
