If someone visits your space and falls in love with the community, it’s a perfect opportunity to show your interest in them with a proposal - “will you marry/join our space?”
**This is a guest article**. Ramon Suarez, author of The Coworking Handbook and founder of Betacowork Coworking Brussels, has created a course to help you build a thriving community!
We caught up with Hector Kolonas from included.co, and chatted about Member Benefits.
We have finally reached the last part of our GDPR guide for coworking spaces! Soon, you will be able to effectively plan how you are going to deal with all personal data in a clear, fair and transparent manner and what security measures to take. Let’s continue from where we left off in the second part of our guide, with the steps coworking spaces need to take to be GDPR compliant!
Coworking spaces offer space, furniture and resources so that coworkers can work, but also include Internet access, electricity, cleaning, heating or air conditioning and other running costs. They also organise professional meetups, courses, breakfast get-togethers or talks that promote synergies and the growth of the professionals that work there. To this end, a coworking space is much more than renting a desk or rendering a service. That's why it is difficult to regulate coworking because it encompasses several types of business activity that do not have their own regulation.
**Which key performance indicators (KPI) do you use in your coworking space?** Keeping an eye on the most important statistics in your coworking space can: 1) help you understand the areas where you may have a problem; 2) check what practices work well; and 3) set quantifiable objectives that can help you regularly measure your space's performance. As you're probably aware Nexudus Spaces lets you keep up-to-date with your space's most relevant data, with more than 80 reports that provide all sorts of detailed information.
In recent years, **the coworking movement has broadened**; there are more and more spaces, which reach an increasingly wider community and have attracted investments of around $1bn in the last year. This has undoubtedly helped the concept be progressively more "in trend" and the number of medium-sized and large companies interested in the ins and outs of the model is on the rise. As a result, there are also more events and training programmes aimed at promoting collaboration in professional working environments.
