Coworking is becoming a trend, and a lot of professionals are switching from traditional cubicles to inspiring coworking spaces. Taking that into consideration, coworking brands should ensure their spaces meet the corporate definition of ‘productive workplace’. Therefore, today, we have come up with 7 smart hacks to transform your coworking space for good; to ensure they speak of nothing but productivity.
1. Conducive location
Choosing the right location is of utmost importance. The idea behind using co-working space is to cut down the travel time and use it more effectively towards the growth of your member’s business.
In addition, central locations allow coworking spaces to offer easy accessibility to facility users and their clients. Therefore, make sure your coworking space is located centrally, easily accessible by all the potential customers.
2. Personalize your coworking workspace
The interiors have a lot to do with productivity. Author Julie Morgenstern says, “people need to build a visual cocoon for themselves”.
To understand the importance of interiors, take it as the central nervous system of your office. If it is in a good state, the positive vibes would affect morale, encourage good work ethics, and ensure the delivery of work. If mastered correctly, the interior of your coworking space can be a driving factor for the members’ business, pumping people with energy and boosting their productivity.
Hence, personalize your coworking space to make it look more inviting, more lively, and full of energy and enthusiasm.
3. Use the right furniture
When people opt for coworking spaces over the traditional workspaces, they are clearly in a mood to convert their time into profits. Taking that into consideration, the coworking spaces should take measures to ensure the desired outcomes are achievable. One way to get started is by using the right furniture which can ensure comfort for everyone. In addition, office furniture should foster the usage of the right postures, because it helps the members focus better, avoid health hazards and improve efficiency.
Use ergonomic furniture which is designed in accordance with corporate standards, and while taking ideal ergonomic conditions into consideration.
4. Make sure the vibe is right
The vibe at the workplace is the most underrated factor and the same applies to coworking spaces. The right vibe can fill people with positive energy which would automatically boost productivity. You can do that by working on two essential factors:-
- Use the right lighting: The lighting affects mood and therefore, your productivity. Additionally, proper lighting is mandatory for proper visibility.
- Set the temperature correctly: Whether too hot or too cold, the end result is a loss of productivity. Thus, set the temperature correctly; install efficient heat ventilation and air conditioning systems.
5. Encourage conversation for networking
Coworking spaces are filled with a mix of potential customers and growth partners. So, instead of letting the monotony of work hamper productivity, encourage people to indulge in conversation with others. Unless they talk to each other, they won’t get the opportunity to convert simple conversation into meaningful partnerships.
Coworking spaces are best known for networking opportunities, helping members share ideas and achieve their business goals by connecting with like-minded people.
6. Offer noise cancellation earphones
Noise is the chief complaint in most coworking spaces. Therefore, noise cancellation headphones are #1 recommendations for people who believe silence is their sound of productivity. Private cabins can too be a great way to ensure optimal productivity at coworking spaces.
7. Use technology to your advantage
