Dean Williams talks about pros of coworking

The trend of coworking — putting several, small independent companies and professionals under the same roof — has been growing the past five years. It has been driven largely by technology, enterprising 20-somethings and, in Michigan, workers who started small businesses or started to freelance after being downsized.

"In some ways this is a trend of going back to the workplace," said Margaret Williams, the interim dean of Wayne State University’s School of Business Administration. "A lot of it is driven by the millennial generation and their affinity for social connections."

Williams’ research interests include employee perceptions of fairness in the workplace and work-life issues.
