In a shared workspace environment, taking care of the space you’re in can make everyone’s work life easier. No one wants to walk into the shared kitchen area to see the sink full of dishes! Take note of these super simple tips to make everyone’s time in the space run more efficiently.
Schedule conference and meeting room time with wiggle room.
Oftentimes conference and meeting rooms are booked back to back. If your meeting runs over your scheduled time, you’re causing the next meeting to begin later than expected. Check with the receptionist to see if anyone is booked after you and add more time if you need it. We will do our best to accommodate you and your guests in a different meeting room if needed.
Be mindful of your noise level.
It can be quite distracting when you’re on a conference call to hear a neighbor’s music or conversation. If your phone is on speaker, keep the volume low or close your door. Keep music or other noise at a low level so you’re not disturbing your workspace associates.
Our most used shared space… the kitchen.
The kitchen is one of the busiest areas in our suite. Two easy rules of thumb here: First, if you wouldn’t want to smell it in your private office, don’t microwave it in the kitchen. Second, clean up after yourself. Please don’t leave dirty dishes in the sink or a trail of crumbs across the floor.
Utilize our most valued resources!
Our associates are our most valued resources. When you’re looking for help in a particular profession, why not see if someone in the suite can help you or your client? Creve Coeur Workspace is fortunate enough to have specialty tenants in many different areas of practice: tax pros, lawyers (Criminal, Estate, Social Security, and more), home health care, realtors, insurance agencies, tech help, and financial advisors just to name a few.
