9 1/2 weeks in Coworking: Experience of HDFashion
Today, many companies experience a pandemic-related crisis and each one of them
lives through this time of turbulence in its own way. Some of them slow down and
work in a power-saving mode, others stop the business, and there are those who are
CODID-19 forced companies to review their attitude to the working space and think
of more convenient and beneficial variants so that a business could adapt to
unpredictable changes as quickly as possible. That’s what HDfashion did. Here’s
how it has fulfilled its vision together with Coworking Platforma.
Coworking culture in Ukraine is rapidly developing. It is a rather young business:
Coworking Platforma pioneered this niche in 2015. When the first coworking was
opened in Art-zavod Platforma, nobody believed that it would pan out. But
companies do need a comfortable office which can be quickly adjusted to the team’s
size and needs. You don’t have to look for reception and security employees, worry
about redecorating your office or fixing your air conditioner, or purchasing office
equipment, coffee, tea etc. By paying a monthly fee, coworking residents save
themselves from any troubles that one has to deal with when leasing the premises
for an office.
Eclectic design, brave interior solutions and innovation of Coworking Platforma
struck a chord with HDfashion’s team. One single space enables to do both: be
creative and solve everyday issues.
Another undeniable advantage of coworking for HDfashion is 24/7 service and
round-the-clock security. You can organize a filming any time you want just by
dropping off at the cowoking and taking the equipment you need, even late at night.
Mostly IT-companies used coworking earlier. Depending on a project, their teams
could become bigger or smaller and their requirements to the working spaces
changed accordingly. Today, other businesses have also appreciated the
advantages of coworking: from the product development companies to consulting and fashion industries. They understand how many financial and administrative
troubles the coworking system saves them from.
Coworking Platforma offers a unique service for big companies called Headquarters
which allows a team to customize an office. You can have your own meeting rooms,
kitchens, lounge zones and even reception — you can move in already in a week
after confirming the layout of a new office.
It’s up to a resident to choose a place to work in: in the office or the lounge zone, on
the roof or at the bar. You can relax and play a game of billiards or foosball in the
game room. Every day, there are different activities for residents (yoga, workshops,
networking) which are great motivators. These are basically everyday teambuilding
events organized for a huge community.
The mix of coworking synergy is a win-win deal, because small companies can
cooperate with large ones, big businesses can unite and create a joint project. This
is the place for meeting like-minded, creative, open and innovative people. And the
fact that they gather in one place helps them develop both as a team and
