How-to Guide: Determine How Much Office Space Your Team Truly Needs

Posted by Gather on May 1, 2023 1:59:36 PM

If you think through all the places you have worked, you will likely notice that they all have one thing in common: They are all very different. From company culture to physical location and in-office perks, there can be tremendous variability in working conditions, including the size and type of office space the business requires.

In our experience, we find that the following questions help to identify the type of workspace and size needed by new companies:

 

  • Do you plan to scale during the duration of your desired lease term? If so, what is your projected headcount?
  • How many, if any, of your staff members will need private offices?
  • Do your employees frequently hold meetings? What is the typical meeting size?
  • Will you need a full kitchen?
  • How much common space will you need for breaks, meals, or lounging?
  • Will you need any other types of spaces, such as reception areas, storage space, etc.?

Gather Says: Be Prepared to Deliver on a Human-Centric Approach to Employment

Posted by Gather on Nov 14, 2022 10:49:10 AM

There's no need for Great Resignation; we need "Great Reflection." Work and people are in a trivial state, requiring a shift in employer assumptions. 

Millions of workers in the U.S. voluntarily left their jobs this past year, and there’s plenty more to come. The drivers of attrition are many but employers are having to learn about the new demands and motivations of their employees. It’s no longer enough to pay our employees well and provide them a career path; they seek to work for a business that respects their well-being and that matches their values.

Cafes are for lattes, not coworking.

Posted by Gather on Jun 6, 2022 4:22:20 PM

A coffee shop is a great place to meet up with friends or relax with a good book, but is it really the ideal place to work?

Coffee shops have been around for a long time and have a well established culture as cool places for freelancers, remote workers, and students to work and hang out. After all, you don’t have to pay for your seat, the wi-fi is free, and typically there is no limit to how long you can stay.
