COMMUNITY STANDARDS - Do's & Don'ts for Coworking Space
Community Standards Contract (Dos and Don’ts)
officeLOCALE is a coworking community, which means we respect each other and we look out for each other. Just as important, we respect and take care of our space. As a member of officeLOCALE, we encourage and expect you to take pride and ownership in your community. Here are a few simple rules that we think will help you get more out of your membership:
General Rules & Considerations:
? Memberships are first come, first served. (Space is subject to availability and reservations take priority).
? officeLocale is a non-smoking facility. Please be considerate of nonsmoking coworkers and smoke at least 10 feet away from the building.
? Reception Services: All members must use staff assistance for the use of office equipment.
? Every person using officeLocale MUST be a paid member. Exceptions: non-members can be on site if they are meeting officeLocale members for business-related meetings or if the non-members have purchased a Day Pass. Members are absolutely accountable for the conduct of their guests.
? We expect all members to respect and treat the facility and other coworkers and walk in clients with care.
? The common area (open table) is a shared workspace. Here’s how we can all happily and productively share the space together:
o We ask that you please be considerate of your neighbors when taking phone calls or conversing in general as it is a small work space. You can jump into an unoccupied conference room. If you know you will be on a long call ahead of time, you can book the conference room. You can also bring headphones if you need extra focus for your work (it is the international sign of “don’t bug me right now”)
o Please occupy only one spot at a time in the common area. Taking up multiple spots limits the space available to your fellow members.
o “The 15 Minute Rule”: Feel free to leave your stuff in the common area if you need to slip out. But if you’ll be gone for longer than 15 minutes, please pack your stuff up so your spot is available to for another member. Note: officeLocale is not responsible for your property so be sure to insure your own belongings/equipment.
? All members must obtain approval from officeLOCALE prior to posting any signs, symbols, or pictures in the windows or doors of the premises, or upon any interior part of the building.
? Finally, our job is to manage this great community. Got questions, ideas, or suggestions? Need help connecting, catalyzing, and creating? Please feel free to come up to us and chat at anytime!
