Work.able opens doors to Filipinos
In these times when you can crunch numbers like a boss while sitting in a café or dream up the next big startup while grabbing a bite with friends, work.able, the newest player in the flexible workspace arena, is the “office” for you.
Derived from the words work and enabler, work.able is a community of forward thinkers and people who can help you get things done, in the manner that best suits you or your company’s style.
work.able’s maiden site is at Cyberscape Gamma building in Ortigas Center in Pasig. Inside, work.able is a well-lit space designed with a combination of Scandinavian and industrial design elements.
Just past the reception area is the main coworking space occupying around 200 square meters.
Off to the side is the bar with coffee machines and infused water.
Depending on your working style or needs, work.able can provide a number of work station solutions.
As work.able caters to startups, freelancers, and even corporations looking for extra space for seasonal manpower, flexibility is the name of the game.
If you’re comfortable working alongside others, you can choose to sit at any Hot Desk in the open-plan seating area.
If you prefer having a space where you want it reserved for you, the Dedicated Desks might be more suitable, and work.able will provide storage drawers for your laptops and other belongings.
For those who need the utmost privacy or prefer to work in a quiet environment, the Private Offices, starting with the two-seater office suite, are the best bet.
work.able has an additional 700 sqm on Cyberscape Gamma’s 37th floor, dedicated mostly for 3- to 6-desk private office suites. Total capacity of Private Offices is 131 seats.
While everyone leasing a work.able space (rates start at P250 for half a day) gets free Wi-Fi, unlimited coffee, and infused water, those leasing the private office suites for at least 30 days have added perks like a mail and package handling service, the use of a business address based on guidelines, meeting room hour credits plus printing, photocopying and scanning credits, among others. work.able’s hours are from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., from Monday to Friday, but these long-term clients will have access to the facility 24/7.
One of the buzzed about benefits of coworking spaces is that they’re conducive to collaboration.
Whether you’re working alone or with team members, a coworking space gives you the opportunity to interact with other people.
They can give you feedback on your ideas or help when you’re stumped for a solution. At work.able, a dedicated community manager and community associate are also around to help you connect with people who might give your business a boost, or vice versa.
work.able members have the opportunity to attend events, talks and seminars where they can socialize, establish connections and plan collaborations with other members.
Growing its network is what work.able intends to do very soon.
The company forecasts opening two to three work.able centers each year.
