Here are some of the questions I’m considering using - feedback is welcome! A couple of them are similar but I haven’t decided which to use.
How many employees did you have before becoming a member?
How many employees have you added since joining?
Estimate percentage of sales from out of area *If all your work is local this would be 0%, if all your clients/customers are in the Bay this would be 100%
How many local jobs have been created within your company in the last year?
What do you love about working at a coworking space?
Do you feel that being a member of a coworking space has helped your business grow?
The year prior to joining: What was your annual personal income or company sales *If you are a remote worker, this is your Income, if you are a small business this is your gross sales
Since joining: What is your annual personal income or company sales *If you are a remote worker, this is your Income, if you are a small business this is your gross sales

Hello fellow coworking leaders,
I am putting together a coworking impact survey to send to our members in hopes of collecting some good information to share with the city and other places to show the positive impacts our coworking space has had on growing businesses and community.
Has anyone done one of these and do you have any advice on what questions to ask and how to ask the questions?
I’d like to definitely have some financial info (anonymous of course), and I’d also like to know about job creation. There is a bigger picture that goes outside of our physical space, like how the restaurants in our area have been effected by having so many regulars eating lunch and even coming back to the area for evenings out. I’m not sure how to ask questions about this, it wouldn’t be as black and white as collecting economic data but I’d like to try. Any advice is welcome.
Thank you. I’d be happy to share some of the questions I come up with when I’m done if anyone is interested.
