Emergent Research and the Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC) are partnering on a survey looking at how people work in coworking spaces and the roles networks and networking play in the coworking experience. The results will be made public and released at the GCUC conference in May.
We need your help in getting coworkers to take the survey.
Based on the results from this survey and some follow-up interview work, we hope to quantify how coworking members benefit from the networking opportunities available to them through membership in a coworking space.
We think this information will be very useful is showing that being part of coworking community has a strong value proposition that goes way beyond simply the value of office infrastructure.
While we cannot guarantee the survey results will be positive, prior work on coworking and networking (ours and the work of others) lead us to believe it’s likely we will get positive results. And even if we don’t, we’ll still get interesting and useful data.
We need at least 500 respondents for this survey to valid and closer to 1000 would be much better, so we need your help recruiting your members. Also, since coworking owners, managers and people who work for coworking spaces also work IN coworking spaces, they too should take the survey.
The survey can be found here.
Let me know if you have any comments or questions.
Thanks for your help.
