    The co-working movement

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 10/08/2018

    » Shared workplaces or co-working spaces, have changed the way people work and collaborate with each other, offering flexibility, opportunities, networking and even relaxation in ways a traditional office cannot. There is no doubt that there has been an abundant amount of such communal spaces in Thailand (look no further than our cover story on co-working spaces a few issues ago), which means that various start-ups and businesses have begun to change the way they operate. JustCo, headquartered in Singapore, is a leading provider of co-working spaces and opened their first co-working centre in Thailand in May. Their first space, which is two-storeyed and is within the AIA Sathorn Tower office building, has attracted potential clients with their vibrant setting, casual and cosy ambience and creative lighting designs. We chat with Kong Wan Sing, founder and CEO of JustCo, on why such spaces are in demand and expansion plans.

While I'm sure these dear sirs exercised their sound rationale before agreeing to such big purchases for the sake of Thailand's security, IMHO, with utmost respect, I would like to point out that there are other more beneficial ways the money could be used too.
