How a Coworking Space Can Foster Creativity and Connections

If you’ve been feeling stuck in a rut when it comes to work lately, a change of scene could be just what you need. Many professionals find that making the move to a coworking space not only fosters creativity and innovation, but also helps with networking, productivity, and so much more. The fact that it’s also a cost-effective way to enjoy a professional working environment is a bonus!

How does a coworking space do all of this? Read on as Circle Hub explains!

A Collaborative Environment

Coworking spaces are designed to be as collaborative as possible. From their open plan layouts to the comfortable common areas that encourage members to relax and get to know each other, collaboration is rife at a coworking space. This is something that members love. After all, these collaborations, no matter how informal they may be, can lead to new ideas, opportunities, and more.

The fact that a coworking space is used by people from all walks of life really enhances this collaborative environment. The talent pool at a coworking space is wonderfully diverse. You’ll meet people from a variety of different industries. Each person will have their own unique ideas and perspectives about the projects that you’re seeking opinions on. Whether you’re simply looking for some inspiration or you’re hoping to establish an official collaboration with another professional, all of this becomes so much easier when you’re working from a coworking space.

A Supportive Community

Professional life can be lonely, especially if you work from home and your job is relatively insular. Sure, the peace and quiet may seem like a treat at the start. However, over time, the isolation that you’ll feel could end up taking a huge toll on your mental health. It goes without saying that this will soon affect your creativity and productivity, potentially causing problems in your work life.

What’s the solution? 

A coworking space. Studies have found that 83% of people who join a coworking space feel significantly less lonely. This provides a huge positivity boost, with 89% of people finding that they’re much happier after making the move to a coworking space.

This all comes down to how coworking spaces strive to foster a sense of community. This is something that human beings need, yet it’s often neglected. At a coworking space, you’ll feel connected to those around you. There’ll be plenty of emotional support and encouragement to soak up whenever you need it.

If you’re an introvert who often finds it difficult to immerse yourself in a new community, most coworking spaces, including Circle Hub, help with that by ensuring that there’s always a community manager on site. Not only are they responsible for making sure that everything runs smoothly, but they’ll also be able to introduce you to relevant people. This will make it much easier to get involved in the community side of things, no matter how introverted or shy you may be!



Many professionals find themselves stifled when they have to follow a long list of rules and adhere to strict boundaries. This is why a coworking space offers such a breath of fresh air. Flexibility abounds at a coworking space, giving professionals the opportunity to do what’s best for them.

Say, for example, you love working in the buzzing and vibrant environment of a shared workspace. However, sometimes, you need some privacy for confidential projects that you’re working on. Most coworking spaces will offer a variety of workspaces for you to choose from. This will enable you to pick the one that best suits the tasks that you’re doing. At Circle Hub, you could hang out at our Hot Spots when you want to be surrounded by others, but then book yourself a private office for a couple of hours if you need some alone time. 

The fact that Circle Hub is open 24/7 brings even more flexibility to the table. You’ll no longer have to follow 9-5 working hours. Instead, you’ll be able to work whenever you feel most productive. If you prefer getting your work done in the early hours of the morning, you’ll be able to do just that. Meanwhile, if you’re someone who enjoys working at night, a coworking space will allow for that in a way that a traditional office space won’t. 

Professional Networking Opportunities 

If networking isn’t something that you usually prioritize, it may be worth paying some extra attention to this. Networking can be a game-changer for a professional, opening up doors to so many opportunities and ideas. Networking will also give you a fresh new perspective on the work that you’re doing while building your confidence. This will, in turn, boost your productivity.

There are likely various local networking events available that you can sign up for. However, the majority of these tend to consist of stuffy seminars and tedious workshops. This is why networking has gained a not-so-great reputation over the years – people simply don’t enjoy it.

At a coworking space, however, things are done a little differently. Sure, there’ll still be formal networking events that you can attend but you’ll also have access to casual events that make networking a more relaxed and comfortable process. At Circle Hub, for example, you’ll be able to enjoy everything from networking breakfasts to yoga sessions. At each event, you’ll be meeting like-minded people, with the nature of these events being a great way to break the ice. 

We find that not only are our events ideal for helping our members expand their professional networks, but they can work wonders for a person’s social network too!

Easy Access to Resources

Something else that often hinders creativity is a lack of resources. Imagine that you’re brainstorming for a project that you’re working on, but you need to do some research on your various ideas. A slow WiFi speed that has you waiting for a couple of minutes just for a page to load will end up halting your thought processes. Likewise, having easy access to printing facilities can make a huge difference in how easily you can get certain jobs done.

To some, high-speed WiFi and printing facilities may be the norm, yet these are resources that many professionals don’t have access to. Home or public WiFi speeds can be shaky while good printers are usually costly. 

Fortunately, some coworking spaces, including Circle Hub, provide office amenities to their members. We understand how vital these resources can be, and we want you to have full access to them. In fact, not only do we provide regular office amenities, but we also give our members a boost with some added extras, such as complimentary beverages. You’ll no longer have to waste time (and money) stepping out to pay a visit to your favorite coffee shop midday as you’ll be able to enjoy all of the coffee that you need, at no extra charge, when working at Circle Hub.

Work-Life Integration


Many professionals struggle to establish a healthy work-life balance. This not only applies to people who work from home but also to those who work from a coworking space. Oftentimes, when you’re in charge of your own schedule, it can be tempting to buckle down and spend long days working, leaving very little time for the other aspects of your life.

At first, this may seem like a productive way to go about things. However, it usually doesn’t take long for this to lead to burnout. This is why many big employers are now also trying to encourage their employees to achieve a healthy work-life balance. Sure, in the short run, this may mean that they work fewer hours each day as they need to make time for other things. However, in the long run, the fact that employees are much happier and more fulfilled really pays off in terms of productivity.

This is why some coworking spaces, including Circle Hub, also try to encourage members to make time for themselves. Our on-site gym is the perfect example. Exercising is not only vital for a person’s physical health, but it also gives mental health a boost in a way that can send productivity soaring. Sign up to Circle Hub and it no longer becomes a hassle to trek over to your gym each evening. Instead, our fitness center will enable you to squeeze in a workout whenever you need one. This will give you some much-needed me-time in a very convenient way.

Exciting Locations

While the coworking space that you choose to work at will have a huge impact on your creativity and productivity, the location of your coworking space can also heavily influence its overall vibe. This is why coworking spaces are often set up in buzzing and exciting environments. Not only will this attract a diverse crowd but it also gives you an inspirational area to enjoy when you’re not working.

With Circle Hub, you’ll have two locations to choose from. The first is in Ventura, with the nearest beach just a ten-minute drive away. Go a little further afield and you’ll have several other beaches to choose from too. It’s the perfect location for those who like to relax by the shore after a long day of work.

Meanwhile, our Northridge location sits just a few minutes away from the Northridge Fashion Center. Revered for being one of the best malls in LA, our members love having such a fantastic selection of restaurants and bars so close by. This area is also heavily frequented by entrepreneurs from a variety of industries. This makes it an exciting hub of innovation and ideas.

Finding the Perfect Coworking Space

While the majority of coworking spaces foster creativity and connections as much as possible, they’re not all like that. Just like in every industry, you’ll get the good and the bad. This makes it important to understand how to differentiate between them. 

This is why we always recommend taking a tour of any coworking spaces that you’re considering. A tour will allow you to check out that space’s ambiance firsthand to see if it’s a good fit for you. At Circle Hub, this is easy. Tours can be booked online for both of our locations so that potential members can experience our diverse and motivational environments for themselves!
