The workspace of the 21st century is constantly evolving. With a new generation of workers eschewing traditional working models for flexibility and independence, they now demand a workplace not just for productivity, but for improving their wellness and community too.

WATG’s report Working Nine to Thrive examines the complexity of this contemporary issue, crucially addressing the way the hospitality industry has come to influence the services provided in corporate environments, with emerging synergies between the two. This white paper delves into the growth of co-working as a productive alternative to traditional freelancing, investigating what kind of spaces this trend creates and why they have become so successful.
