Community-building in your co-working space

Co-working spaces thrive on the people who work there, and their expertise. Community building is the key to get the most out of this work style. Take a look at the top 3 things that will ascertain good bonding and lasting connections amongst co-workers.

1. Member board

This is crucial and must be a part of every co-working space. A member board on the wall will have pictures or even information about all active members of the community. This makes it easier for people to know who they are working with and whom they can turn to when they require something.

2. In-house events

Skill building workshops, corporate training sessions, happy hour, are all ways to bring community members closer. Personal interactions along with new learning experiences help in trust-building and also provide some fun for all the participants.

3. Suggestion box

All co-workers must get a chance to voice their opinion about other people or the functioning of the work-space. Community managers can regularly take suggestions from members and ensure that the necessary actions are taken, for the betterment of the work area.

Every community is build and held together by its members. And it is they, who forge the paths to successful co-working.
