It’s fascinating to think about how much the work world we know has changed in just a few decades. While office buildings, conference rooms, and cubicles are still very much a reality, they are no longer the only reality. Thanks to the connectivity afforded by technology, now people can collaborate from all over the world, from the comfort of anywhere with an internet connection.
One of the coolest outcomes of the trend toward a global workforce of remote workers is co-working spaces. Co-working spaces involve a shared working environment between groups of people with different goals.
This new addition to the workplace landscape has taken off and Panama is staying ahead of the curve with plenty of awesome options to choose from. Increasingly popular among freelancers and creative people who seek community and collaboration, these co-working spaces operate as a temporary work environment anyone can rent by the hour, the day, or the month.
They are an amazing way to get inspired and also create networking opportunities for individuals and business. At a co-working space, you can not only interact with other professionals from a variety of sectors but you can also meet prospective clients. At any of Panama’s co-working spaces you have the option to do both.
If networking is a priority for you, it’s a good idea to ask about the other types of professionals or businesses you will share the area with to see if there is any potential for partnerships. Regardless of what you’re looking for or in a co-working space, you’re bound to find the perfect fit here in Panama City.

Plus, with 24/7 access available, night owls and early risers alike can take advantage of all that Workings has to offer.
