Managed workspace firm Department has opened a pop-up workplace in Manchester’s Spinningfields area free of charge during its debut week.
Situated at coworking space XYZ Social, the workspace aims to accommodate workers to come back to the office for free in return for sharing their experience on LinkedIn, Twitter or Instagram, tagging @DepartmentUK_ and adding the hashtag #DoWorkBeSocial.
Its “pay as you post” launch offers working and meeting facilities while abiding by safety and distancing measures. In addition to a workplace, the space offers unlimited coffee and tea, WiFi, bike storage, showers and food service options.
“Department’s workspaces are founded on the principles of work, wellness and social, to enable a better work-life balance,” said Anthony Powell, managing director at Department. “The Department pop-up at XYZ Social is intended to support freelancers, small business owners and employees who may be struggling with the isolation of working from home. It also allows those that cannot currently work from the office, and don’t have the necessary set-up at home, to deliver their best work.”
