In A Booming Industry, Shangri-La Hotels And Resorts Leads The Way By Rethinking The Co-Working Space Of The Future

September 20, 2018 Hotel News No Comments Email Email


The proliferation of a new generation of mobile professionals has produced a period of rapid change in how work is approached throughout the world.

Contemporary work practices are continuing to rapidly evolve away from traditional office jobs towards an increasingly fluid, tech savvy workforce looking to utilise a more adaptable, agile and dynamic model of shared work environments in beautiful spaces. Hotels are at the forefront in taking co-working spaces to the next level, encouraging creativity, inspiration and collaboration, with none more so than Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts.

Co-working spaces are enjoying a boom in popularity as businesses and professionals become more flexible with how and where work is done, embracing advances in technology and an increasing need for agility and adjustability. These spaces allow scope for individuals or smaller teams to work in high-quality environments, in desirable locations that may otherwise be unfeasible. The majority of co-working office spaces are located in traditionally corporate environments, so the switch to the hotel model; fresh, modern facilities with built in access to cafés, restaurants, gyms and spas is turning the industry on its head, a natural fit that is redefining the standard in the industry. Innovative groups such as Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts are leading the way by embracing changing business landscapes and creating the co-working environments to service them into the future.

For guests, co-working spaces are modern, custom designed environments in which to work and connect. For local residents, co-working spaces are vibrant hubs of creativity for start-ups and professionals looking for full-service office space without the complications of leases and office management. A new generation of mobile workers are utilising the flexibility and dynamism of co-working environments and Shangri-La has adapted to accommodate them. Building on Shangri-La’s strength of providing high quality services and amenities to co-working spaces, their hotels in Beijing, Hong Kong and Colombo have become central to work life in their cities.

In China there is a high demand for short-term office spaces and co-working has become enormously popular, presenting a lucrative opportunity for hotels such as Hotel Jen, Beijing to embrace the growing trend, setting themselves apart from traditional business hotels for the millions of workers and freelancers in the country. The hotel opened in 2017 with Prototype, a dynamic co-working space with city views and a fun, contemporary design to maximise convenience and creativity. Prototype offers individual work pods, 13 creative meeting spaces, a versatile multi-function area and a mini cafe with self-service kitchen. The meeting spaces feature integrated technology including media walls and built-in white boards and for more private meetings, the Studio within Prototype offers a semi-private space. Guests staying in hotel can use all facilities at Prototype free of charge, while other guests from the hotel and public visitors can purchase memberships to the space.
