Share Your Workspace and Your Community

Freelancers can now find a workspace in North Hastings.

Rural on Purpose is inviting businesses and freelance workers to team up with a workspace sharing program. Lee Bay, Community Lead for the project, says that sharing resources and equipment between workers and businesses has many benefits. She says that businesses will be able to make a little bit of revenue with unused space. For freelance workers, they get to use the resources without spending on getting new equipment just for themselves.

Bay says that they have 8 vendors so far (Gyms, Kitchen’s, Offices) and that the deadline to apply to participate is on Wednesday. For freelance workers, they have until Friday to apply for the program. She says that on Friday, a passport will be released to freelancers which will give them an opportunity to go around and visit vendors and check out their spaces.

“It’s going to make it a more sustainable community if we have shared resources” she says and adds that it will encourage people to move to our area. She states that “By 2020, 40% of millennials will be remote workers”.
