Meet me, if you can

It has been clear since the beginning of the pandemic: Working from home is not a permanent solution. You can work from the bedroom for a while. Situated between the bed and unironed laundry but it turns out that concentration and efficiency suffer as a result. An alternative to this are third places such as coworking spaces, hotels or companies with free places.

Trust and Presence

But what about important meetings? Team meetings and brief arrangements can be made digitally even before the pandemic, new work tools such as Google Meet, Zoom or Microsoft Teams were a wonderful alternative to face-to-face meetings. For new customer business, contract conclusions, pitches to potential investors or job interviews for key positions, trust and transparency, in addition to interpersonal relationships, play an incredibly important role in the success of a project. Sometimes this can only be achieved in appointments on site - in presence.

Solutions apart from Zoom and Co.

But how is that supposed to work? Conference rooms that can be booked flexibly and at short notice, inspiring meeting rooms in the immediate vicinity or central conference offices near the airport during a business trip are the perfect complement to the new digital meeting culture. Perfectly equipped, corona-compliant rooms with enough space for each individual make it possible not to lose direct contact with colleagues, business partners and new applicants despite the pandemic.

Congestion in corporate offices

If many employees are in the company office at the same time, the meeting rooms are often busy. Instead of coordinating projects in the hallway or in the coffee kitchen, companies can spontaneously create alternatives during such peaks: Third places with conference rooms in the area are perfect for this.

At independesk you will find inspiring meeting rooms and desks within walking distance throughout Germany, which can be booked easily and flexibly without a subscription.
