Growth in Popularity Drives WorkSocial to Expand Coworking Space
The addition of 6,000 square feet in the Jersey City location will enable the firm to serve more clients.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jersey City, N.J. (December 30, 2021) – As the demand for shared office space increases, one local coworking space, WorkSocial, is expanding its footprint by 6,000 square feet to accommodate the growing number of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and consultants seeking the company’s offerings.
The expansion work at 111 Town Square Place in Jersey City begins in February and will be open to clients seeking Jersey City office space in April 2022.
Since 2016, WorkSocial has been providing coworking space that provides small businesses and individuals a refreshing alternative to home-based work or meeting in public places like coffee shops. Members benefit from a dedicated on-site service team, upbeat culture, state-of-the-art technology, access to private offices and group conference rooms and business services like reception, mailing services, WIFI and more.
The expansion will include additional offices, six new meeting spaces, and five phone “booths” where clients can take private calls. “This is such an exciting endeavor,” explains Natasha Mohan, CEO. “It was designed by an all-female minority team and inspired by offices at Google and Facebook.”
The coworking trend was already growing rapidly before 2020 but the pandemic changed how people worked, particularly in the business-dense Tri-State area. When it was clear many companies were asking their employees to work from home, WorkSocial sprung into action, making sure their locations in both Jersey City and New York City were open and adhering to strict social distancing and sanitizing protocols. The effort paid off.
“Working from home can be isolating,” explains Natasha Mohan, CEO of WorkSocial. “Our clients wanted to be able to go somewhere where they could access everything they needed but without worrying about safety. That trend continues now, with the rollercoaster we are seeing with the new variants.”
The pandemic also brought a significant increase in people leaving – or losing – their jobs and pursuing their own business dreams. In fact, according to Census Bureau’s data, nearly 1.4 million applications were filed to form new businesses through September of 2021. Comparatively, 2020 had around 1 million and 2019 had 987,000 during the same time periods.
“Our space and services are ideal for new start-ups that are learning what resources they need and how to manage them,” says Mohan. “We provide that support so they can concentrate on their business and not have to worry about office space, technology or support services. We provide a professional mailing address as well so they aren’t sending mail to their apartment, for example,” she adds.
Importantly, WorkSocial allows small businesses to offer their employees a pleasant and highly functional work environment without the burden of overhead.
Mohan says the new space they are building is already 60% reserved. “It gives us great joy to be a resource to the people and teams who work at our facility. There is so much creativity and energy; it’s exciting to come to work here every day.”
