Remote Workers Turning to Coworking Spaces

More Alexandrians, tired of working from home, are seeking alternatives to the dining room table.

After months of working at home, Selam Eyassu needed to get out of her house, and just be around other people.

“I need that social interaction,” Eyassu said. “I don’t necessarily have to talk to someone all day, but I miss the normal.”
As a relationship manager for Hingham Institution for Savings, she had been working with an office mate and going to in-person meetings before the pandemic hit. In March, she started working from home — alone.
Eyassu always had the option to work from home, but she knew that wasn’t for her and she preferred going to the office. After months of working from home this year, she became a member of co-working facility ALX Community.
