Your days at the office may be numbered. Ever since the 1990s, when a handful of intrepid employees with a landline, modem and desktop began "telecommuting," the number of employees working from home has been on the rise. Now, with the ubiquity of high-speed Internet access, secure cloud-based applications and near-constant connectivity via smartphones, a new trend in remote work has emerged: Co-working.

Co-working spaces are flexible offices that allow people to rent a desk on a monthly, weekly or daily basis, offering access to a range of office equipment and services.  About 48 percent of the regular users of co-working spaces -- which run the gamut from a bare bones center with Wi-Fi, printers and a coffee machine, to full-fledged offices offering meeting rooms, career development seminars and networking events – are independent contractors. The figure comes from the Second Annual Global Co-Working Survey co-written by German media company Deskmag and Lafayette, Calif.-based Emergent Research, a research and consulting firm focused on the "future of work."
