Actually, the verdict isn’t in yet, but the way I’m hoping to help catalyze a stronger sense of community at my workplace is using the same approach as where I live (see yesterday’s blog). Just today I used the listserv to pick dates for our first happy hour, and half the entrepreneur tenants (eleven) are a go. June 3rd’s our first happy hour, so I’ll let you know then how it went. Update: How it went!
As far as a common place that everyone can naturally gather, that’s a strength of where I work at the shared suite of workspaces at the Affinity Lab. Simply put, the entire workplace is like a big living room, complete with a central lounging area of couches, big comfy chair and coffee table full of magazines.
