A co-working space can be far more than just a space that you can get work done it. A shared workspace also allows individuals to collaborate with one another and use the facilities for hosting a number of events. One of the key aspects of co-working spaces that many people like to take advantage of is going to these collaborative events to establish relationships with other businesses. Here are some of the top ways that you can work at hosting more events in your shared workspace:
Consider Routes for Business Networking
Networking can be essential to getting to know everyone in your workspace and creating collaboration. Consider some networking events that would draw a large number of participants based off of the applicability to their field. A breakfast meet and greet or even bringing in a speaker that touches on a few industries within your co-working space can be a good start.
Consider Your Space For More Than Just Work
Establishing a co-working space that also has some distractions like video games, a ping pong table or other amenities can be the perfect way to host events or turn them into your shared workspace. Having a place to relax can be a great way to offer some creativity in the day and a stress free place to collaborate.
Host a Charitable Cause
Enjoying a shared workspace and supporting the local community can be an admirable goal as well. Taking the option to host a charity event and raise some funds for a local school or create some buzz for your coworking space with a bake sale can be a great option for hosting events.
Take a Health Break
Introducing classes like yoga or a fitness break regularly can make sure that employees can regularly attend an event for collaboration while improving their own overall health. Taking a break during the day to work out can help with a heightened sense of productivity and improve success and happiness in the workplace too.
Consider some of these top options if you are working to host new events in a shared workspace.
