In the bustling world of co-working spaces, where grey cubicles often dominate, Work.Life is looking to challenge the status quo.
Founded in 2015 by David Kosky and Elliot Gold, Work.Life are transforming the way we approach our professional lives.
More than just a place to work, it is a vibrant community of professionals that can collaborate and be comfortable in the workplace that feels like home.
Step into any of Work.Life’s 11 locations across the UK, including one on Brown Street in the heart of Manchester, and you’ll immediately sense the difference between run-of-the-mill coworking spaces.
Bright, modern, and thoughtfully designed, they break free from the monotony of traditional offices with friendly staff that make you feel right at home.
At the heart of Work.Life lies in a profound commitment to fostering a sense of belonging and connection among its diverse array of members, they design their energising workspaces to help productivity and creativity flourish.
Adam Parsons, Membership Manager for Work.Life Manchester, encapsulates this ethos, highlighting the importance of community in every aspect of Work.Life’s mission.
He said: “It’s our mission to make people’s work-lives happier.
“We’ve got an amazing team who take care of everything. They’re so welcoming and supportive of all our members.
“It’s not only a great environment to work from though, we also offer a whole range of perks and events too!
“We’ve got lots of local discounts, clubs who meet regularly as well as hosting beer & pizza socials every Thursday, not to mention all the more bespoke activities we do from workshops to games nights we’re always looking to bring values to our members or at the very least inject a little fun.
“We’re so proud to have created a space where our members can express themselves, collaborate & connect. It’s still ‘work’… just happier.”
From collaboration opportunities within their Slack community to genuine support and camaraderie, Work.Life’s community is the beating heart that propels its members forward.
But Work.Life’s vision extends far beyond building a sense of community.
They recognise the critical role well-being plays in our professional lives.
They prioritise the holistic wellness of their members too.
On Wednesdays, there’s a focus on little wellness moments to help break up the working day (think salad bars to massages, journalling workshops to chocolate making!), and they offer perks such as a recent anxiety workshop during Mental Health Awareness Week.
Beyond the walls of their co-working spaces, Work.Life is driven by a profound sense of social and environmental responsibility.
As proud recipients of the prestigious B Corp certification, they are committed to meeting rigorous standards and making a positive impact on society.
Sustainability is ingrained in their DNA, with eco-friendly practices, recycling programs, and partnerships with local suppliers to reduce their ecological footprint.
The office is also jam-packed with modern amenities, including showers, complimentary breakfasts, and a constant supply of tea, coffee, and snacks, elevating the workday.
They also have a great selection of different breakout and working spaces to suit different working styles.
Adam continued: “Work.Life brings a fresh perspective to the concept of co-working, prioritising community, wellbeing, and networking opportunities.”
Moreover, Work.Life provides a platform for networking and opening doors to new opportunities.
Through Lunch & Learn events, members can expand their knowledge while enjoying a delicious meal, fostering a culture of learning and professional growth.
As Work.Life continues to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing needs of its members, they understand that flexibility is key.
