Five useful tools for freelancers
Independent workers and small startups juggle lots of balls. They manage all parts of their project, from start to finish, including finance, customer relations, and logistics. So Deskmag has come up with a list of five useful new tools for coworkers and startups which make work life that little bit easier.
Helping coworking members interact
For the average coworker, the advantages of working in a coworking space typically include being part of a community, reducing isolation, increasing productivity, networking, and growing a client base and work flow. Encouraging interaction and collaboration in coworking spaces is therefore something all space operators try to achieve, but there are some spaces which serve as exceptional examples to the coworking community in accomplishing these goals.
Transition from home to coworking
It's a new year, and perhaps you've decided to start it afresh by leaving your solitary home office and setting up in a buzzing coworking space. Before you make the leap, here are a few tips for helping you transition from a solo to collaborative workspace.
First aid in coworking spaces
The holiday season signals a time to give back to the community by supporting groups working for a good cause. As well as the wider community, coworking space operators can make sure their own communities are well looked after with a gift that keeps on giving. By creating a safe place for coworkers to work and making sure a space is equipped to deal with workplace emergencies, space operators can help create an environment conducive to year-long merriment.
Designing a successful coworking space
How can the design of a space encourage collaboration and innovation? One of the most engaging events at the recent Coworking Europe Conference was the design workshop led by the team from TILT, a studio that specializes in collaborative workspaces. The results were so interesting that we asked Oliver Marlow from Tilt to write a special guest post for Deskmag to summarize the outcome.
