What the heck is Coworking, Sackville?

Aug 12, 2016 | Uncategorized

We believe Coworking can help our community thrive. But we wonder: Do you know what Coworking is? According to wikipedia, Co-working is "a style of work that involves a shared working environment, often an office, and independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those co-working are usually not employed by the same organization.[1] Typically it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation.[2] Co-working is also the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values,[3] and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other.[4][5]" Since 2005, some core values have emerged from the global movement: Community, Openess, Collaboration, Sustainability & Accessibility. According to Fast Company, there’s science to support why coworking has become so popular. And Huddle recently unveiled their list of New Brunswick’s best coworking spots. So why do we think Coworking will mean something to Sackville? And why do we use a capital "C" ? It’s because we believe we’re part of a global movement that is finally coming to the cultural crossroads of the Maritimes.
