The market for co-working spaces is often cherished by the office-goers. An area often unheeded is the workspace demand of service-based professionals. We're talking about the need for profession-based co-working solutions. And the truth is that doctors, lawyers, tutors, health professionals seem to be quite fascinated by this new concept
Traditionally, professionals rent workplaces to serve their practices. But over the past few years, this field has seen abundant consolidation of personal practices with shared and integrated workspaces. And why wouldn’t it?
Co-working spaces trigger factors like cost efficiency, larger-scale operations & most importantly growth. Another reason behind the rapidly increasing need for co-working is space aggregation; professionals in service business don't use spaces completely or are in operation for only a few hrs. in a day.
Now, they become larger suppliers of workspaces –reaping the advantages that result in higher footfall, hence more people coming in. Auxiliary business generated becomes much larger from the shared space and always new gentry are coming in to get a consultation.
The saving factor for professionals is hugely accelerated because of the nature of most professional specialties. A doctor requires clinic amenities, a fitness trainer wants multiple gym equipment and similarly, all professionals require professional-specific amenities. The cumulative use of these amenities leads to cost reduction, hence adds a plus-point to the need for co-working or flexible spaces.
Let’s understand the viewpoints of service professionals on shared spaces. During a recent conversation, Dr. Rashmi, a consultant in the dermatologist department of a reputed corporate hospital shared the insight:
"Practitioners preferring to not share can find themselves having a troublesome time competing with the big corporate hospital, clinics & other big fish establishments.,"
"If customers have gotten comfy sharing automobile rides and flats, then physicians will get comfy sharing their OPD's with a number of their contemporaries" she added.
When asked about the potential changes driven by professional workspaces, a tutor located on the ideal location on Sohna Road, Gurgaon says, "It comes down to how space, services, and pricing are designed and what their other alternatives are,". Tutors save plenty of cash on direct capital expenses and current monthly overhead if they're willing to create some tweaks in their thinking.”
