Here at Works Social, we’ve always been one to challenge norms and have long championed the #FutureofWork notion. We believe communal working helps forge connections with others and opens up opportunities for mutual and meaningful collaborations. Through a trusted network, supportive of the entrepreneurial spirit, Works Social helps members expand and grow.
But, what do you do in the face of the ultimate challenge of the Coronavirus? The situation that tested ‘norms’ to limits that we could never have expected in any business continuity plan?
Works Social Ambassador, Han van Oudheusden, was recently interviewed by Create Insurance about the challenges faced during lockdown and what the opportunities are for the future.
What have been your biggest challenges during the period of lockdown?
“We have tried to keep the vibe alive virtually and maintain our coworking community online during lockdown including community lunches and happy hours via zoom, members shout-outs on social media, a dedicated slack channel and regular communications to keep everyone in the loop with our efforts and ambitions in relation to the crisis, however, the biggest challenge remains not being able to convene together.
From a work or social perspective, one of the major benefits of working in a coworking space is the planned or impromptu interactions with your coworkers whether it be for inspiration, support, collaboration or celebration. However rapidly we have adapted to tech savvy ways of living our lives remotely, the need for human interaction will be a harder habit to break."
