1. Take ownership and be respectful. We’re proud to offer a physical home to Bloomington’s independent workforce, but cannot build the community alone. We encourage you to suggest (and host) events, organize member get-togethers, and introduce friends as much as you’re able. Please respect your coworkers and help make Cowork a positive and welcoming community.
2. Quiet, please. While we hope to be a fun environment, we’ve done our best to create an environment in which people can actually get things done. If someone is being too loud, respectfully let them know.
3. Respect the Booking Calendar. Use the breakout rooms as much as you can, but pay attention to who’s booked them. If someone has the room reserved, they’ll likely knock – so please move out quickly if they do. Want to grab a room last minute? It’s still a good idea to book it so others know it’s not available.
4. Hands to Yourself. Bring whatever you’d like for your desk, but please don’t snoop around others’. If you feel like your neighbor is taking up too much space, you can respectfully let them know.
5. Clean up. Don’t leave trash, clutter or dirty dishes. You’re welcome to spread out while you’re working, but please do your best to leave the space better than you found it.
6. Recycle. Duh! The bins are in the kitchen. There’s also usually a compost bin by the trash.
7. Leave when you have to. If you don’t have a key, please be prepared to leave by 5:30pm. A Designated Desk member is almost always around later, but it’s your job to be ready to leave when they do. They really don’t want to ask!
8. Lock the door. If you’re the last to leave, please make sure both the front and back doors are locked. If you don’t have a key, please call Jessika or Tyler for help. Our phone numbers are listed below and posted on the white board in the office.
