The pandemic had a lasting impact on many areas of our lives, and one of those was the way we work. Remote work has become more and more common + according to a study by Upwork, 22% of the American workforce will be remote by 2025.

There are many pros and cons to working from home, but if you’re the type that needs to get out of the house at least once in a while — here are some coworking spaces around Indy to work from.
