BGEN is a membership-based space where freelancers, entrepreneurs, and other independent professionals work together.

In 2015, researchers discovered that people who belong to one of these styles of coworking memberships report higher levels of professional thriving. This is compared to those who work in the traditional office setting. On a scale of 1 to 7, professionals that participated in coworking spaces rated their professional thriving level at 6. Why is this the case?

Sense Of Community

Professionals from all industries and walks of life come to coworking spaces. It takes away the feeling of competition you might get in a regular office. There’s also a different vibe and community in every coworking space. It makes people feel comfortable at work. Another thing people love about this place is that there’s no pressure to socialize. Work in the space when you want, socialize when and where you want.

Meaningful Work

BGEN’s coworking spaces give people a chance to talk about their work and make what they do feel more meaningful. This reinforces the values of the company they work for or are in the process of starting. BGEN members also say they feel like they’re part of a movement instead of just showing up to work. BGEN’s space reinforces the idea that work is a thing you do, not a place that you go.

Job Control

BGEN memberships give you a lot of flexibility. Most coworking spaces are open 24/7 and BGEN is no different, giving our members the ability to work when they want to. Not everyone does their most productive work between 9 am and 5 pm, so members can choose when they are available. BGEN members can also choose how they work. BGEN is equipped with open areas to collaborate and closed-off spaces where individuals can focus. This gives you the opportunity to decide how you want to get work done.

85% of people involved in incubator/coworking spaces feel more motivated in their coworking space than they do in a normal office setting. They value their autonomy to choose when and where they want to work, and they feel better equipped to get their work done.

At BGEN, we offer incubator and coworking spaces in the heart of Gaffney’s growing downtown area. Start feeling motivated and in control today! Schedule a tour of BGEN to learn more!
