It’s good to share. Co-working offices offer flexible workstations available around the clock – and they’re attracting an innovative new class of freelancers and entrepreneurs.

The nature of work today has expanded beyond noses buried in computer screens within a traditional four-walled office.

 

Thanks to the co-working model, businesses and independent freelancers no longer need to operate in isolated environments with long-term leases, or be forced to work from home. Instead, they can rent the space they need when they need it, sharing office space with talented, likeminded individuals and companies. And cohabitation inspires collaboration. It’s a win-win.

“Co-working is the present and the future of working. The new way of working is really collaborative – it’s about community. We are here to make working lives better.” Wan Sing Kong, CEO

But setting up an effective, creative co-working space is more than just having a stylish and conducive working environment for people. That’s something Singapore-based company JustCo understands implicitly, and why it is one of the largest, most successful premium co-working spaces in Southeast Asia.

 

What sets JustCo apart from other co-working spaces is that it allows you to work outside of standard office hours, and equips start-ups and small businesses with flexible workstations suitable for their expanding and evolving needs. Keeping costs down means new companies can develop and grow faster, and working alongside other visionary businesses encourages new partnerships or client relationships among innovators with shared interests. JustCo’s distinctive model also attracts members of larger companies with global presences. Business travellers can take trips with the knowledge they have a suitable office environment to work from while visiting their host city.

There are 11 locations across Singapore currently. JustCo CEO Wan Sing Kong says, “We’re planning on expanding across Asia. In Bangkok, we are in the prime business location on Sathorn Road at the prestigious AIA Sathorn Tower. Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City will follow suit next year.” Each JustCo location enjoys ample natural light and desk layouts are designed to increase productivity. Scandi-chic furniture, exposed brick walls and custom neons lend an edge to the décor scheme and spark creative inspiration. Balance is found in the open spaces between a professional and friendly community.

 

A full suite of office amenities is provided – as well as entertainment areas where members can unwind by playing ping-pong, foosball or arcade machines. Other perks include access to wellness classes and networking sessions.

“For us, co-working isn’t just about the space – we’re disrupting the whole commercial property landscape,” says Wan Sing. “When you grow, you need funding – but what Sansiri offers us is a huge mutual advantage that goes beyond the monetary. Sansiri’s depth of expertise and experience in the Asian markets will significantly accelerate our growth.”

 

“Sansiri is big in residential real estate – number one in Thailand,” Wan Sing continues. “And all those residents need to work. We come in from the work aspect, so I really see a lot of synergy. We can see how to make their working lives better.”
