The global design and architecture firm HOK recently released a new report looking at the coworking industry from the corporate real estate perspective.
It's a well researched, excellent overview of the coworking industry and it "examines the drivers of coworking from the demand and supply side, the industry risks and implications for corporate real estate, as well as information about the owners, coworkers and centers."
The report covers a lot of ground and we found all the chapters interesting.
But we especially liked the sections on corporate coworking. This is because this is a less covered aspect of coworking. Below is a report chart showing the things corporations should consider if they are thinking about opening a corporate coworking space.
The report is well worth reading.
For those who are interested but not up for reading a 32 page report, the Curbed article Report on coworking highlights tough realities behind new workspaces provides an excellent summary.
