Today’s workforce management is all about making employees happy and productive. So, it’s a no brainer that your next shared office space should allow your employees to participate in community work events. But not all shared office space communities are treated equally. As the head of your team, you’ll want to give your team members a place that helps them feel like part of a community while adding value to their lives – supporting their productivity.
Here are 4 key things that you’ll want to shoot for when it comes to community work events and why they matter.
Cross Networking Potential
Although a lot of shared office or co-working spaces offer events, it’s a good idea to pick a spot that helps your team build their networks. This involves finding a space with like minded individuals and not polar opposites. Sticking creative team members in a space designed more for numbers oriented professionals isn’t the way to go. So, when looking for a spot, make sure to take a look around and confirm that there are plenty of similar interests that you’re team can leverage and take interest in.
Get the Creative Juices Flowing
All work events are not created equal. There are your business development mixers, marketing luncheons, pre-weekend bashes or any type of gathering theme you can think of. So, given the plethora of event styles and topics, make sure to find a space that hosts events that your team will love. This will help to pique their interest, get the creative juices stirring and inspires them in their everyday work. Without inspiration, you’ll likely find you team doing the status quo and preparing to bolt at the end of the day.
Boosts Overall Morale
Not only do coworking work events help to build your team’s networks and creativity, but it also helps to boost overall morale and productivity. With today’s workforce, it’s increasingly important to keep your employees and team members engaged – allowing for a positive work culture. And there are numbers to prove it. Recent research shows that teams with negative work cultures exhibit higher rates of absenteeism and injury, which lead to lower productivity and profitability. Keep your team happy and productive by making sure your space allows for the right mix of work events.
Blows Off Some Steam
If anything, shared office space work events are a great place to blow off some steam from the stresses of the work day. We’ve all been there. Whether it’s a packed meeting schedule or dealing with a difficult client, we’ve all had those days that we wish would just end. So, why not end them with a late afternoon work event that involves a relaxation class or a fun inspired event in the coworking space. It’ll help to keep your mind off of the day’s losses and prepare you for tomorrow’s gains.
