In the Traditional office market, long-year lease agreements hit companies' decision-making things like moving the location, etc. Most of the agreements are affected with lockin agreements which are the factor difficulty.

Challenges faced by traditional offices.
Staff Maintenance cost
If you work in an office that has a traditional workspace then you might hire some support staff to look after the cleanliness of your office and make it up to the mark. So, this is an additional cost you might have to bear while you work in a traditional workspace.
Workspaces always require printers, inks, rims, pens, diaries; which being a traditional office holder you must have to bear. While these all are taken care of while you work with the coworking spaces.
Poor Internet Connectivity
Net connections are also a major concern nowadays. If you work in a coworking space then these kinds of concerns are always taken care of by the space provider. My own personal experience, being a freelance content writer benefited from the concept of coworking spaces. In fact, I noticed an improvement in writing both in terms of quality and quantity.
The environment which I work in, the energy and enthusiasm from which I am working there and of course the good company make me feel so much positivity at my workplace. It is equipped with a play area, a good mood food court to refresh your mood and a lobby where you can work on cozy sofas, a comfortable couch with a large sip of Starbucks coffee side by your work.
Moreover, as mentioned earlier as well, working in a coworking space is about working with other highly motivated people who are so much passionate and particular about their work that makes your day at work.
The sparkling lights, the lift lobbies, the Tim-Tim lights in the breakout area along with good ambiance and comfortable couch make your day and makes you work with even more energy and zeal, enthusiasm as well as passion.
