Can Coworking provide with part of the remedy to the great resignation wave ?

Panel – According to PWC, globally, one in five workers is planning to quit his/her job in 2022. So, employers are today facing a massive challenge : to retain their best talents. Well-being and flexible work conditions seem to be among the clearest demands within the workforce nowadays. In that context, to what extent can flex workspace providers can today position themsleve as a solution partners ? Can coworking spaces’ layout and inspiring designs become the standard for the workspace in general, flex operator being the best qualified players to supply the best work environment to the individual workers ? How can the sense of community cultivated by coworking spaces bring a new meaning to the daily routine of work that would encourage employees to stay in their position ? Are satellite offices solutions a creditworthy answer and how close should it be from people’ homes ? How about allowing people to work from coworking and coliving facilities abroad and forstering nomad working ? Could coworking spaces in the future market themselves as “work well-being solution providers” ? How aware are corporates nowadays of the advantages of coworking to address the “great resignation” challenge ?

Ukraine crisis - Can the network of coworking spaces in Europe mobilize to support Ukraine's refugees, startups and other initiatives ?

The Coworking scene in Ukraine has mobilized dramatically to offer support, solutions and help in the context of the war in the country. Coworking players from many European countries also got in touch with one another to provide with assistance to Ukrainian refugees in the whole EU looking for connections and a work shelter to keep earning a living for them and their family while having to find a drop spot in a hosting foreign country.

The conversation will about all those experiences, what can be provided further and also what the situation teaches us about of the international network of coworking operators can activate humanitarian initiatives and solidarity actions.
