In theory, working from home is great. A flexible schedule, custom environment, and an excuse to keep on your cozy clothes—what's not to love? Yet in practise, there are several obstacles—loneliness, loss of productivity and lack of office equipment—that make remote working a challenging and uninspiring prospect.
Bridging this very gap between a full-fledged office and working from home is the increasingly common concept of co-working spaces. It's no longer a solution only for freelancers and entrepreneurs. Even those working full-time can boost productivity in a beautiful working environment while having access to great facilities. So why not head to one of our favourite co-working spaces in Singapore?
