15 Arkansas Co-working Spaces

W

Working from home can be isolating, so many have experienced this recently. However, creativity comes in shared spaces, whether you are an entrepreneur, work-from-home mom, small-business owner or remote employee. The U.S Chamber of Commerce offers that “shared working spaces provide small businesses, independent contractors and other workers a space to get work done, network and participate in their local business community.”

Benefits of using Co-Working spaces

  • Increased productivity
  • Boost creativity
  • Collaboration opportunities
  • Cost-effective
  • Greater flexibility

With many effects of the Covid-19 pandemic at bay, people seek spaces and opportunities to get out of their home offices into shared spaces with others. Many co-working spaces in Arkansas have reopened their environment for memberships and shared users. New working pods are developing, and people are getting back to work.
