Catarina King, co-owner of Society1, talks about how they have adapted their coworking space at Society1 in accordance with government COVID-19 directives, and are ready to support people who seek an alternative from working from home, by offering a safe place to run their business without committing to a permanent commercial lease.
The coming months are going to be interesting to see how the world of work will change as further lockdowns are in place. We see that shared working spaces will play an important role in connecting people and businesses into the future.
We have made the necessary adaptations to comply with COVID-19 guidance for people who can't work from home or need access to office space, these include:
Even if you can work quite effectively at home, the benefits of getting out of the house and being around other people is invaluable. That little chat whilst you grab a coffee can bring a world of opportunity. It’s key to your wellbeing too.
Knowing that you are in a safe environment is equally important when you do decide to venture out. Here are some of the benefits for coworking.
Coworking can fit into most people’s working lives in some way or another but these are the most popular fits.
Many coworking services offer virtual office packages that enable you to register your business at their coworking address. It’s a great option for people working from home instead of using your home address for business.
Meeting rooms to hire on an hourly or day rate provides the option to meet clients in a professional and safe environment. Coworking is a great way to fulfil short term space needs. If you are working on a location-based project or your team temporarily needs a central location to meet, coworking space is a suitable consideration.
Catarina King is owner and co-founder of Society1, a coworking space in the centre of Preston. Along with her husband Brendan and brother Chris Ruppert, they benefited from business support through Boost’s Growth Support Programme and have since hosted many Boost events at their coworking space and continue to be ambassadors for Boost’s business support programmes.
