At the heart of any coworking space, what makes the shared workspace community tick? How does one build and sustain the coworking community spirit while also breaking everyday monotony? What events will be advantageous and engaging for our members? These questions nudged our team and we decided to channelise our efforts in finding answers to them, quickly.
We realised that Workspaces by Innova can offer great opportunities for members from diverse backgrounds to get to know each other better.
How we curated a variety of live, online and hybrid networking events.
We decided to tap into their collective creativity and host a series of engaging coworking events, both live and virtual, to help our members feel more connected to their community in a vibrant environment.
A round-up of the events that were successfully hosted at Workspaces by Innova.
1. An insightful session with a holistic life coach and mental health advisor
Finding harmony and fulfilment in the times of a global pandemic became challenging for everyone. On 15th June 2021, we took the initiative to help our members maintain a positive outlook in the post-COVID-19 strenuous times. We partnered with a very eminent NLP master, Heal your Life, Trainer and Motivator, Dr Hitu Khera.
She conducted a virtual session for our Workspaces Community on discovering one’s true potential. The entire session on ‘Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life’ with Dr Hitu Khera was funded by our organization and received active participation all across the workplace community.
2. Talk on Covid compliances at work while retaining well-being with Dr D.K. Gupta
As an aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic, one of the biggest fears people had was about returning to work. As an organization, we wanted to spread awareness on keeping the work environment safe. On 16th July 2021, we organized a session on return to work guidelines.
Dr D.K. Gupta, the proud owner and promoter of the multi-speciality hospital under the brand name “FELIX HEALTHCARE PVT LTD” led the session on Covid-19 compliances at work. He addressed our members’ COVID-19 centred questions while sharing Covid prevention practices to protect everyone’s well-being at work.
3. Thank God it’s Friday – Yellow, how are you doing?
They say, “Yellow is capable of charming God.” We wanted all our lovely members at Workspaces by Innova to feel bright like a streak of light!
And that’s when we decided to incorporate some fun into our workplace by asking our members to wear the colour of joy. It turned out to be a delightful sight when everyone dazzled in yellow on 23rd July 2021 and radiated hope, positivity and happiness.
4. Salute to our nation on its 75th Independence Day
15th August is a memorable day for Indians. We decided to celebrate Independence Day with our community members by organizing a small get-together on 13th August 2021 and decorating the office in a tri-colour theme. The bright hues of our flag reflected in our office decorations and created a patriotic fervour in each one of us.
We had activities like kite flying and high-tea to celebrate our spirit and unity along with an opportunity to express ourselves. A truly euphoric moment!
5. Game Face On with Table Tennis Champions
Playing sports and engaging in physical activities is known to boost concentration and strategic thinking. We decided to encourage a little healthy competition to find out who will reign supreme as the office TT champion.
Starting 30th July 2021, we announced a Table Tennis Tournament for our community members that entailed 12 matches with 24 participants. The participants had their eyes set on beating the competition hollow and grabbing the coveted prize.
6. Time to be dutiful to look beautiful
We believe that grooming helps create an impactful impression that allows people to stand out. Since we recognise how feeling and looking good matters at the workplace, we went ahead and set up a small stall of NGENBLISS best-sellers on 9th September 2021.
Our members enthusiastically explored the distinct range of products that were available at exciting discounts.
7. Creating moments as sweet as ‘modaks’ on Ganesh Chaturthi
Since Lord Ganesha is revered as one of the most loved Gods, who removes all obstacles and sorrows from our lives, we celebrated this joyous occasion in its full glory on 10th September 2021.
Our members looked dazzling in ethnic wear and meticulously decorated their workstations with an idol of Lord Ganesha and other festive elements. The most well-decorated desk was given an attractive gift hamper.
8. Birthday cake cutting ceremony to mark the month end on a celebratory note
At Workspaces by Innova, we want to celebrate each one of our valued member’s birthdays. Once a month all the birthdays are clubbed and we create a special evening on every 30th of the month in the form of a small celebration session.
We look at it as an opportunity to bond with everyone as celebrating birthdays is a tradition that never gets old.
9. Creating an authentic opportunity for networking in a shared workspace
We wanted to provide our members with a platform to forge solid connections. That’s why we hosted a networking event that would help members meet new people and get a chance to collaborate.
On 17th September 2021, everyone gathered to meet people from varied backgrounds. It was a step towards building sustainable professional relationships. The uniqueness of this event was that we offered everyone a fun ambience to build rapport, expand the business opportunities and gain better visibility.
10. Members health check-up program
We wish to see our community members in the top structure and hope that they remain as such. Recently, we reached out to one of the premium health package providers, Redcliffe Life Diagnostics, so we could help our members detect any health issues and improve their quality of life.
This onsite health evaluation and management camp was our initiative at the early discovery of health issues that can restrain the related cost and severity of the health hazard.
11. Helping our members get energized with Yoga
Working non-stop throughout the day leads to fatigue and excruciating body aches. That’s why to help our members alleviate stress and body pain, we organized an exciting Yoga session with fitness enthusiast, Preeti Tyagi.
Our members enjoyed the enriching session where they learnt how simple Yoga stretches could improve blood circulation and energy. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the dynamic movements and poses.
A final word
Being workspace service providers who focus on members’ interests, our well-knit coworking events have always been targeted at improving the overall community experience. We have been mindful of utilizing the ‘openness’ of the shared workspaces enabling our members to increase their exposure, escape everyday pressures and stay active.
