5 Ways Coworking Can Fix Post COVID-19 Lockdown Economy

Nowadays the circumstances are notably difficult at every instance. There is uncertainty everywhere.

On 12 April 2020, a World Bank report focusing on South Asia said that India’s economy is expected to grow 1.5% to 2.8% for FY21. This will be the lowest growth for India in 30 years. The World Bank report said that the pandemic has “magnified pre-existing risks to India’s economic outlook”.

How to Design CoWorking Spaces that Inspire Workers

Coworking spaces are in demand like never before.  It is a competitive market and contrary to the early adopters of co-working, those choosing to work out of co-working spaces today aren’t looking merely to rent affordable office space or to break away from the rigid ways of the traditional office. Users are flocking to these spaces seeking autonomy in their work, flexibility and customisation in their work environment, a vibrant community of co-workers and opportunities for exchange and collaboration. Whether they hire meeting rooms in Bangalore or desk space in Gurgaon, users are asking a hassle-free experience that does not disrupt their work flow. They are looking towards co-working to help them step up their careers, support their growth aspirations, set them free to experiment with new ideas and establish new businesses.

5 Ways of Making Your CoWorking Space Stand Out

1) Stand for something. Make it known.

A remarkable idea is one that draws from strong belief, establishes rationale and translates to action. If your mission is vague and inarticulate, it will be forgettable.

Ask yourself why you are in the business of coworking spaces. Do you want to make the office a happy place that people are happy to return to? Do you believe coworking plays a role in leveling the playing field for all sexes? Are you targeting a space that takes away the stresses of urban life and sets people free to achieve their potential? So that the modern professional doesn’t lose touch with the rhythms of nature, do you envision a space where the outdoors intermingle with the indoors?

What Entrepreneurs Need to Learn About Team Work

If you have been consumed by a business problem, if you have cared deeply for a solution, believed in an idea, taken a risk and struck out on your own to build a company from the ground up, you have done well!

It is likely that in coming this far, you have had yourself to rely on. You have had to rely on your skills, your convictions and often, your own money.  You are an independent thinker, a proactive doer. You spend little time in discussion and consensus building. You lose no time in making decisions. With a small team or none at all, you are the company and the company is you. Your work ethic is the ‘culture’ of your company. You value your autonomy, your self-reliance.

What type of meeting rooms will suit your company?

Imagine a meeting room with high-backed leather chairs around a large conference table of polished teak, concealed lights beaming down from the overhead panels, dark blinds over the windows, a refreshments counter with delicate, floral chinaware and a piece of classic artwork on one wall.

Now imagine a room with cotton curtains, windows with wooden shutters that open outwards, coloured lampshades suspended from the ceiling, a potted plant of mogara at the entrance, many small tables and chairs that can be moved around the room and posters with quirky quotes on the walls.

So you hate your job? Your 8 Step Guide to Getting Back On Track

So you hate your job.  You have to push yourself to get to work everyday. Hour after hour, you wait for the day to end, for any opportunity to stop working. You miss your deadlines.

             In retrospect of our independence –   We Matter

In the India of 1947, in the dusk of celebratory days, what did our predecessors see before themselves? Amidst the joy and the strife, the dawn of an era of nation building. Men and women of all ages, within their own realms of power, saw that they were at a cusp of history where they could be the architects of their own nation. No matter the arduous road ahead, the possibilities were immense and lay open to be ceased.

      It is the 16th of August 2018. The 72nd anniversary of our independence has passed. And aren’t we bearers of the same power and responsibility for nation building as  our predecessors in 1947? They wanted peace and prosperity, opportunity and equality. Do we want any different? Surely our responsibility must be no lesser than the generation that fought for our freedom. If at all, it must be more. Soon after Independence, it must have been easy to never let nation building out of sight. Today it is probably easier to forget that whether we know it or not each one of us is an actor in the life of our country.
