(re)delight in your workspace!
When was the last time your workplace made you have a moment of sheer delight? When you realized that you LOVE coming to work? The workplace is more than the sum of office furniture and walls and interwebs – it’s a community of people and ideas and running jokes and helpful advice. Coworkers know delight – they MAKE delight, they help to create it in the workspace.
At NextSpace San Jose delight comes in many forms – it’s the moment when your coworkers help you pick design comps to send over to an important client; it’s the moment when you’ve found that you just picked up another client due to a coworking referral, it’s when you walk in and find that not only did someone bring in donuts, but that there’s also an organic veggie delivery that day. Now, that’s the way to work.
Oh, August. Sigh. You’re so cruel. We’re so busy one day, and then everyone’s out the next. We’ve hosted vacationing coworkers from New York, Boston, Sweden, and Australia in the past month or so. The trade off – we’ve got NextSpace members vacationing in Australia, New York, Utah, Denver, the Dominican Republic, etc. That means a whole lot of rested and productive coworkers will be back in the space at the end of the month, probably with suntans and good stories and deadlines…
And in the meantime, that means we’ve got a little bit more breathing room in the space! Come fill it! Code word “AUGUST” for five dollar daypass. Or click here to reserve through LiquidSpace.
Four ways that you’re a coworker to be (and you just don’t know it yet:)
• The Mobile Worker: You can work anywhere. But “anywhere” doesn’t cut it. You want a “somewhere”, and somewhere good. It’s easy, it’s central, it’s productive, it’s fun, and most of all it’s professional. Voila NextSpace.
• The Small Company: Hmm, suddenly not so mobile. You’ve got files and books and a phone and some desktops and maybe you just need a desk or two or maybe you need an office. And a conference room, and some cool people around you. And good coffee. But you know you don’t need a lease.
• The Network Expander: You need usability testers. You need to talk to your market. Hell, you want help identifying your market. Enter NextSpace. You’re tired of working in a silo. Is anyone out there? Hello, we are. A heterogeneous, diverse, friendly group of built in testers, cheerleaders and critics.
• The Corporate Member: You’re an industry leader with several hundred (or tens of thousands of) employees. But you want A)to find out how to leverage a diverse community; B) drop in access that might be closer to where some of your employees live (or helps reach sustainability goals); C) an off site location with easy access for brainstorming, or D) all of the above. If the answer is A, B, C or D – we can help by creating a custom-sized enterprise membership for your company.
