It can sometimes feel like work takes over your life, especially when you are faced with daunting deadlines and projects that need constant attention. The little free time that you have can easily get spent on taking care of the daily tasks that were swallowed up by the work week. Coworking spaces are acutely aware of the fact that work can be overwhelming, which is why many offer services that make the daily routine more pleasurable and productive.
Here we have a compiled a selection of interesting services offered at some coworking spaces, which can be used as inspiration for same or similar services:
Need a balance between social and quiet time?
Flockd, a “real-world app” that launched last year during Global Entrepreneurship Week, is a tool that enhances connectivity and productivity. In partnership with several coworking spaces, including Green Spaces and New Work City, Flockd is made for open workspaces. The product was inspired by the relationships, innovation and ideas, which typically come to life in coworking spaces. People can use it as an invitation to build relationships, collaborate, form an in-person following, be productive, create open-conversation zones, and signal needs for new resources.
Marissa of Green Spaces described the product as a pyramid shaped tool that users "can place on a table, writing their name, organization and topics on its dry-erase sides. The effect aims to be real-world Facebook, live tweet or spontaneous meet up. When people are busy, they turn Flockd on its side to set clear, healthy boundaries”.
Tony of New Work City said that "Flockd will make it far easier for my members to feel comfortable being social while also being able to stay focused and be more productive. As workspaces continue to evolve away from cubicles and toward open environments, the need for something like Flockd is only going to grow.” Flockd is made of dry-erase, recyclable and customizable plastic. In essence, it helps create the perfect balance between being social and being productive, which is essential in the ever-changing workspace. The price of the product starts at 5 USD.
