Defining shared office spaces.

With the proliferation of different workspace models, there can be confusion regarding the meaning of “shared office spaces”. Does this mean that many people share an office space, or are there many offices sharing a common space?

A shared office space is where a workspace in a commercially leased environment inhabited by a business on a flexi-lease basis to bring its team together. There may be multiple businesses aggregated under the same roof, but they each will enjoy a designated private office space. More often than not, shared offices spaces are found in set in motion with coworking spaces where both individual workstations and private offices are available for use.

Another interpretation of shared office space is where a tenant of a privately leased office rents out their unused space to another business. In this case, they will share the cost of rent, bills and overheads. However, in Singapore, the former setting is more commonly observed and will be referred to in this article.


What are the benefits of shared office spaces?

Shared office spaces are increasing in demand due to a shift in work preferences for both employers and employees. For employers, shared office spaces offer great convenience and flexibility. They are usually fully equipped and furnished with amenities the incoming business would need, such as printers, internet, phone lines and a concierge. Businesses can then get to work promptly with such a “plug-and-play” space without having to worry about logistics.

In addition, businesses are liberated from the long-term commitment and large overhead costs of a conventional commercial lease with the flexibility of short-term usage. Shared office spaces also enhance the branding of the business, as this signals that the business is able to lease a commercial property with a professional address. The workplace resources and professional setting are useful for meeting with clients or hosting large events.

Businesses can also be part of a dynamic networking culture when using shared office spaces. Businesses form an organic network when in the same space and they can explore avenues for collaboration and growth. Compared to the traditional office setting, shared office spaces are often more versatile and vibrant in layout, decoration and amenities, so employees can engage in work in a productive setting.
