It’s no secret that working from a co-working office has become the new normal. So much so that in 2019 there are a whopping 35,000 flexible office spaces, just like ours, across the world! Our Signature Works members are no strangers to shouting from the rooftops about some of the best parts of working from a co-working office. But what are we not telling you?
The co-working community is home to some of the best kept secrets, but today we’re giving you a sneak peek into what makes flexible offices so great – but shh – keep it to yourselves!
There’s no such thing as ‘dress down Fridays’
When did you last enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of dress down Fridays? For us, there’s no such thing. Want to know why? Because for co-workers, every day is a dress down day!
We can’t remember the last time we saw a suit in our co-working office, and that’s one of the best parts of going from a traditional nine to five job to being your own boss as part of our co-working community. No dress-code, and nobody to tell you off for wearing your favourite comfy pants!
There’s no more nine to five
Speaking of nine to five, you can forget that when you become part of a co-working community – our office never sleeps, and we’re here for you whenever you get a burst of inspiration.
For some, the structure of a traditional day job is ideal and gives reliability and routine to a day. But for many – particularly those who are freelancers or start-ups – the freedom to work as and when you want to is liberating.
Whether you’re an early bird or a night owl, you can work in our secure office space, safe in the knowledge that you are making the most out of your time – and giving you the freedom to take time a break whenever you like.
No more brown bag lunches either
Most businesses don’t offer much in the way of culinary delights. In fact, most of our members say they became accustomed to bringing whatever they could find at the back of their fridge, or worse, questionable canteen food – but you can say goodbye to your brown bag lunches, we’ve got you covered.
We are perfectly located in the centre of Liverpool, meaning that you’re only ever a few steps away from a range of your favourite eateries. Of course, we do offer kitchen facilities if bringing your own lunch is how you like to roll – but we like to give our members options, and there’s no greater place than Liverpool city centre when it comes to meal choice.
So, whether you’re in the mood for a healthy snack or something a little more luxurious – lunchtime never has to be boring again!
Did someone say free coffee?
It’s a bit of an unspoken rule that to be a successful co-working member, you have to be 90% caffeine – which is why we offer free coffee for all of our members, and their clients. Of course, we’re joking, coffee is certainly not a necessity for success, but we’re serious about the free coffee thing, tea too and – on a ‘fair use’ basis – even free beer!
So, say goodbye to spending hundreds of pounds a month at your local baristas, enjoy our in-house facilities, and treat your clients to a warm welcome on their next visit instead.
All the podcasts
It goes without saying that most offices don’t allow staff to have their mobile phones during work, let alone headphones to listen to music or podcasts on whilst they graft. Whether you’re freelancing or part of a bigger corporation, working from a co-working space gives you the autonomy to do more of what you enjoy.
We’ve found that staff morale is much greater when working from our co-working offices, and in turn bosses too feel the benefit of a more creative, and less restrictive atmosphere. But what does that mean for us co-working members?
Well, it means you can have your fill of your favourite podcasts, all whilst you smash through your deadlines. So, whether you fancy learning more about your industry, or just fancy a light-hearted listen, with us you have more freedom to do what you love – without hindering your progress.
Perhaps the biggest co-working secret, that we certainly don’t want to get out – is that actually, we have a lot of fun.
Yep, work can be fun in the right environment, and co-working offices like ours provide the facilities to offer members just that. From our laid-back break-out spaces to our regular events and pizza parties – we know how to have a good time!
