Coworking might be the newest and coolest big thing in the business world, but it has also given rise to a new office label – a “co-irker.”
Co-irkers are basically people who work in coworking environments and don’t follow coworking etiquette.
With coworking offices on the ascent in Australia, hundreds of thousands of Australians are figuring out how to get the best out of these coworking arrangements.
Just like any office, coworking spaces are going to have a set of etiquette that workers should abide by in order to maintain a healthy and fun work environment. Coworking environments offer something that traditional office environments simply don’t. If you follow the étiquette, you’ll get so much more out of the experience of coworking and probably plenty of new business as everyone networks.
If coworking is the future of office working, it’s important that we all understand the étiquette of coworking so we can get the best out of it.
