Introduction to Based Coworking

The way we are working is changing! There is a strong movement towards a more flexible and remote workforce, adopted by not only freelancers but also large corporates. In addition, there is an ever-increasing amount of coworking spaces all over the globe in some fantastic locations!

Based was created to help people navigate and explore this new world whilst promoting personal and professional development, wellbeing in the workplace and the right work/life balance. 

After all, we are at work most of our lives. The average man spends over 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime! Therefore, it is critical that we not only enjoy what we do but that we carry out our work in the best environments possible. Otherwise, it has been proven our stress levels increase, resulting in anxiety, illnesses and drops in productivity and innovation.

A Based membership can be a one-stop solution to a businesses workspace needs and save considerable time and costs. However, the main power is the Based virtual coworking which offers a single and permanent network of business to collaborate with. This makes a whole host of normal business tasks much simpler, such as – business development, recruitment, organising events/workshops, innovation etc.. and because we are not limited to one coworking provider or a few physical locations the Based network is unlimited.

Online Coworking

We don’t own any coworking facilities but instead have partnerships with a growing framework of coworking providers all over the world. The result is that we can accommodate Based members in any location.

If a Based member wants to be in a coworking provider that isn’t within our partnership framework, no problem! After a member tells us where and when they want to Based via the ‘Members Area’ we present the member with a comprehensive report showing all suitable coworking operators and then negotiate the best deal possible for the Based member. 

If required, we can also provide members with accommodation and local adventure options to help members settle properly into their new environment and experience it to the full.

Another great benefit of members being part of an online coworking space is that members benefit from being part of an unlimited global network of business, which remains permanent regardless of what physical location you choose. 

Our virtual coworking space has all the community benefits any coworking space has to provide, such as –  a chat room, forum, networking events and workshops collaboration tools and much more.

Our vision is to grow this online space over the years so we can offer members more features to encourage collaboration whilst being location independent.

CLEANING UP THE OCEANS

littered beach

BASED is committed to cleaning up the oceans.

The oceans are heavily polluted effecting the natural eco-system. There are areas of plastic floating in the oceans as large as countries! and beaches of outstanding beauty littered with non-biodegradable waste. 

We want to help. As such, 10% of your subscription fee will be donated to the non-profit organisation 5 GYRES who not only campaign for programs to clear up the oceans but focus on education around this important topic. https://www.5gyres.org/
