Remote Workers

Time to get back to something that resembles normal and that means finding a great workspace. Even the most diligent face challenges sometimes. But here at Collab Space, we never deliver bad news without a solution and great news.

Bad News

Over the past 4 month you’ve had to adjust to working from home and manage your work-life balance. The line between work and life has become blurry. You may be missing the experience of a physical workspace and human interaction. Now that things have opened again, you might want to venture out and find distraction free workspaces. However, not all coffee shops are permitting people inside their establishment. 

Good News

Collab Space is now open and is the solution to finding a great alternative to working from home. Even though your team doesn’t see you physically, you’re still the silent hero, meeting deadlines from afar. Every hero needs a sidekick, so let us be yours. While you focus your energy on your work and your clients, we’ll take care of home base. Our office space is open to remote workers, business owners, entrepreneurs and freelancers. Whether you’re looking for a space to host meetings or a quiet space to work, you can find it at Collab Space. Find everything you need out of an office space without the long-term commitment. 

What You Get

  • Hygiene Precautions

    Hand sanitizing units and antibacterial wipe dispensers will be setup through the facility.

  • Safe Office Layout

    Desks will be safely reconfigured to allow space and division for coworkers.

  • Flexibility, with Control

    Work hard, play hard, am I right? But how does one do that when one works where one plays? Work in a controlled office space, while maintaining your freedom. A dream come true.

  • A home for productivity

    Maintaining a structured work day with a positive working atmosphere is guaranteed to improve productivity. This coworking space is designed to help you focus, even when distractions are whispering your name.

  • Save time and money

    Who doesn’t love saving those two things? With flexible membership terms, you will. And while it may cost more than working at home, the temptations of the couch have no power over you here. And let’s be honest, the price for valuable opportunities is immeasurable. Collab Space often hosts talks and events led by experts with wisdom to share; you just can’t put a price tag on that.

  • Cleaning Procedures

    Deep cleaning and regular disinfection of shared areas will be performed regularly. Areas such as handles, bathrooms, desks and chairs will be wiped down with an antibacterial cleaner frequently throughout the day.

  • Networking and collaboration

    Working in the same space as like-minded, motivated people like yourself opens the door to supportive business relationships. Networking opportunities can help you grow. And if your primary focus of the day is to grind independently, there’s an office space for that too.

  • A strong work culture

    An environment fostering legitimacy, professionalism, and credibility: the key ingredients of a solid foundation for your business. Not to mention, the sense of entrepreneurial, go-getter spirit is infectious. You’ll surely feed off the positive energy going around in a place where coworkers choose to be together.

  • Look good, feel good

    Meeting rooms, administrative staff, an office address, and bam, it’s like you traded a closet of sweats to blazers. Soon, it will be your team feeling the FOMO of your new business community, and not the other way around. Oh, how the tables have turned.

Check out the article to find out why Coworking will not only benefit Remote Workers but also, small businesses, sole proprietors, self-employed and entrepreneurs.

“While the future remote workforce is expected to grow, many will still want a place to connect with others in person. Co-working and community spaces are uniquely positioned to fill the void.”

“There are at least three reasons why the coworking industry should emerge from the COVID-19 crisis not only stronger but also more important and necessary.”
