Here’s How You Can Get the Most Value Out of Your Coworking Space
Coworking spaces offer a wide variety of benefits, many of which aren’t found in other types of workplaces. At SharedSpace, we work hard when it comes to providing your team with a productive work environment to help you get the most out of your coworking space and experience.
Attend community events
One of the most successful benefits that come with a coworking membership is the access you get to a large business network. While meeting people and sharing business ideas might happen naturally over time, you can get even more bang for your buck by attending community events. At SharedSpace there’s always an event to attend, whether that’s a Lunch & Learn, Community Yoga, Town Hall Meeting, or Waffle Wednesday. Most flex space/coworking memberships include access to community events and opportunities to interact with members and create collaborative opportunities.
Bring Your Favorite Technology Accessories To Make You Feel At Home
Don’t worry if you left your phone charger at home – chances are someone will have an extra charger for you to borrow. However, to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible and maximize your work potential, it’s always a good idea to bring your own supplies. There’s nothing like your favorite earphones or a personal standing desk to get you in the zone.
Get to Know Your Community Manager
Your most valuable resource at any coworking space is the people surrounding you, and there’s no one better at making connections between members than the general manager and hospitality host. Staff members are your go-to team when it comes to who their members are, what industry they’re in, and how they are hoping to grow their business.
It’s their job to know everyone, create connections between members, and build a thriving social environment where opportunity is always available. Next time you see your general manager and hospitality host, make sure to stop by for a quick chat – you never know what valuable information they might have!
Get Out of Your Office
If you have your own office within a coworking space, getting caught up in your work and forgetting to leave until the end of the day can be a real temptation. Taking a break, though, can be great for your mental health and productivity, and your next opportunity could be right outside your front door. Sometimes it only takes a change of scenery to get those good ideas flowing.
Create a Routine
Most people who work out of coworking spaces have the flexibility to choose when and how they get their work done. While having no set time structure can be awesome for some people, research shows that maintaining a routine can reduce stress and help you to be more productive. Whether you’re a night owl or an early riser, it’s important to create a personalized routine that works for you and stick to it.
We hope that these tips can help you get the most out of your coworking experience. In your thinking about giving coworking a try we encourage you to stop buy a coworking space near you and give it a try. Most operators will allow you to use the space for a period of time to see if it’s a fit for you and your team.
