After nearly 4 years of working on making the best place in the world to work, we turned to our members to find out exactly what they thought about the experience. In their own words.
I can’t tell you how proud I am to be a part of this community.
This draft includes the preliminary findings of our interviews. We will continue to synthesize our findings, add more interview sources, and in the near future publish our research framework to encourage other coworking spaces to conduct their own research as well.
Perhaps just as rewarding was hearing some responses from non-interviewed members. Things like:
It’s awesome to take a step back from the day-to-day mindset and take a moment to appreciate the big picture we are actually part of. Not everyone is jammin’ some nice tunes whilst they work away on something they actually care about, let alone surrounded by people they like. We get to do that.
This is a rare
and beautiful thing.
I would totally fit into this profile […] I haven’t seen anything close to this. And I have read a ton of market research stuff and HR stuff as well. I cannot praise this report enough…
I get goosebumps reading some of the quotes in there cause I think exactly the same way.
A very, very big thank you goes to all of our interviewees. And a special thank you to Valerie Wilcox, the Indy Hall member who suggested and led this entire project.
For members, by members, about members. That’s how we do it at Indy Hall.
