Last week was National Coworking Day. So, we kicked off the celebration with cake pops from Carolina Cravings (our favorite go-to sweet shop). If you have never tried out Perch, come on in! We always offer a free half day.
Since it was National Coworking Day, we wanted to share our list of best practices in a coworking space.
Here is our list of Do's and Don'ts:
Always try out the coworking space before you join.
Commit to good work habits, right from the start.
Optimize your work time. Are you going to keep “office hours” or just 2-3 hours in the morning? Whatever your routine is, be consistent.
Introduce yourself to other members when you start.
Become part of the coworking culture. Take full advantage of the space. Make a point to try one activity, whether it be yoga or a community lunch.
Network: Make yourself available to others for ideas, collaboration, and even friendships.
Respect the environment and the policies of the space. Be mindful of how others are working.
Be professional at all times.
Be neat and clean.
Take phone calls in the appropriate space.
Never leave your phone on ringer mode.
Don’t take the last cup of coffee without making a fresh pot. Always refill everything.
If you reserved the conference room or phone booth, and things change, then don’t forget to remove your name from the time slot.
Never leave your dirty dishes for someone else to wash.
Don’t “sell” your product or services to your coworkers. If they need your help, they will ask for it.
Don’t blast music in your headphones.
Don’t leave old food and beverages in the fridge.
Don’t come to work sick.
Don’t “hog” the facilities/amenities.
Hope to see you soon!
