Today is a great reminder to cowork with people.
And when we say cowork, we are not talking about being great coworkers toward your fellow colleagues. While we will always encourage you to treat the people around you with respect, today is not a day to celebrate being coworkers with someone.
Instead, it is a day to celebrate coworking with other people.
When it comes to coworking, you are working jointly with other people in different fields and/or work environments to complete some sort of task, such as a project. This day was concepted back in 2005 to encourage people to come together in a creative atmosphere and put their minds together.
The first coworking space was founded by hackers back in 1995, but it has now evolved into workspaces where people in all different types of industries can come together as one.
Now, since COVID, coworking has expanded immensely, as many more people are working from home but do not necessarily like to work from home every day. They like to use creative hubs such as coffee shops and libraries to expand their minds and to work alongside other remote workers in other industries, and it is becoming infinitely more popular in 2022.
That said, coworking does not mean the same exact thing to everyone, but on this CoWorking Day, we should all be mindful that doing so can truly help expand our creative minds.
