Office & Shared Workspace in the Post-COVID World

Working close from home a few days a week

a space that people use locally a few times a week (instead of work from home) to avoid long commute times to their job's brick-and-mortar location because businesses have become more comfortable with tele-commuting, but individuals see the downside of working at home (interruptions from family members, isolation, and other factors that might cause a lack of ability to focus). Businesses might realize that there are benefits... more »

Community epicenter

More opportunity for socialization

an organization of likeminded individuals that aren't binded to a physical location. The location is a benefit of the organization, but since remote is the new norm, most individuals are working remote, even doing collaborations. What the phyical space does, is fill in for those who cannot or chose not to work remote temporarily and events around that. The community acts as it has done with a location. Virtual happy hours,... more »

Being able to network while distancing

Co working spaces provided spaces to network and meet others like minded however I don't think being surrounded by many people is something that will be wanted. I rather hear that I can come in during a specific time and date knowing that you are limiting the number of people who will be inside at one time. I haven't heard yet if my husband's or mine workplaces will move into an entire remote workplace. What I like about... more »

Sanitization stations

Co-working spaces should provide hand sanitizer and masks as well as disinfectant cloths to wipe down tables. Access to these items should be included in the monthly fee for accessing a co-working space. The location should also have smaller tables set up for social distancing instead of just the longer tables where people used to sit closer together. Cubicles with easy to clean, non-fabric surfaces would be ideal.
