If you are considering opening up a coworking space it’s important you are able to create a space that is designed for mutual success for all members. Technology has evolved considerably since the dawn of coworking spaces and many employees now favor the option of coworking over traditional office spaces. In order to make sure that your coworking space can have everything that your new renters are interested in accessing here are some top considerations to keep in mind:
Remaining Open to Feedback
One of the only ways that you can develop your coworking space is to regularly listen to and be open to customer feedback. You might receive regular complaints about an office coffee machine, your seats or your desks. Addressing complaints will help you to improve your business and become more in demand.
Focus on Ergonomics
Comfort in the workspace and offering versatile and ergonomic workspaces can be important to improving employee health. Offering a workspace that is not ergonomic or comfortable could lead to less people wanting to work in your space and thus less business!
Make Sure You Have The Right Technology in House
Having the right power supply, phone lines and internet available to work for all of the potential employees is important. Spending a bit of money upfront to make sure that your building is outfitted with the right technology can make sure that you will be ready to handle demand.
Focus on Cleanliness
Nobody wants to work in an office space that is dirty or unorganized. Clean your office spaces frequently on schedule. Work to style your area with cleanliness in mind; get office equipment that is easy to keep clean.
Create Divisions of Space
Having a collaborative space that’s going to be louder for conversing can be important. Many of your tenants will be interested in accessing private workspaces or even having some quiet in areas like conference rooms. Thinking about your space and dividing it accordingly can help to minimize noise and produce a space that will be versatile for more types of businesses.
