‘Think outside of the box.’ Regardless of how frequent you’ve encountered this phrase, its potential in churning out creative and elegant solutions still rings true to every imaginable situation. The idea of coworking space borrows a truth from a variant of this phrase – think outside of the cubicle. Figuratively, and literally.
As one of the coworking space with the status of Malaysia Digital Hub by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), WORQ is a flagbearer of ‘think outside of the cubicle’. WORQ coworking space aims to change the way people work together for the better.
The changes that are brought by WORQ are evident once you step inside their coworking space. Gone are the days of separated work desks and bland hue of white and grey; hello hot desks and game rooms!
The Disruption of Traditional Office by Coworking Space
Malaysia is fast becoming a fertile ground for startups. According to Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC), there is an estimate of 3,000 startups in the country. Also, this figure is going to keep on growing in the near future.
Coworking space such as WORQ plays a vital role in the maturation of the local startup scene by changing how businesses operate. This change is achievable by departing from the traditional office setting.
For a starter, the only place that you can find a cubicle in a coworking space are the ones in the washrooms! This absence of boundaries among SMEs, freelancers, and startups in a coworking space fuels the community among its inhabitants. This openness is a predecessor to meaningful bridges between businesses as they enjoy greater exposure to their peers and clients.
Generally, startups operate on a lean financial commitment. By setting up shop in a coworking space, a startup can run more efficiently without the overhead cost associated with a traditional office. Additionally, WORQ coworking space offers the flexibility of affordable rates for both short term and long term occupancy.
And that’s not all! Businesses that sign up for a package with WORQ can immediately move into their coworking space to start working. Isn’t it great to know that you can get down to business ASAP without the headaches of utility bills, renovation, and maintenance?
