There’s no denying the many benefits of working from home, whether you’re a remote employee or an entrepreneur. But there comes a time when the cluttered dining room table or the converted basement office just isn’t cutting it anymore. Not to mention, remote work can become isolating, as the only “coworkers” we have are our cats, dogs, roommates and spouses.
Enter: co-working! Co-working spaces provide the ideal conditions for a productive workday, from the human connection and networking we all crave to all the important amenities, like high-speed Internet, comfortable desks, and of course, coffee. Not to mention, co-working enables you to get dressed, get out of the house, and better separate your work and home life.
There are so many excellent co-working spaces and unique office setups in Omaha, whether you’re an individual who works remotely for a company or you’re the owner of a small business with several employees. Each space provides flexible options for the type of membership you need, from communal desks to dedicated desks, and even private offices of all sizes.
Check out these thriving co-working communities in Omaha, some of which are already up and running and a couple coming soon!
