Secret Santa gift exchanges have become a holiday tradition among friends and co-workers alike, the world around. The concept allows groups to participate in the joy of gift giving, without having to worry about an ever growing shopping list. While some may opt for a simple exchange, other versions have gamified the concept with either chance, gambling or out right thievery.
Secret Santa for Coworking
For those who are employees of traditional workplaces, it’s up to the party planning committee to coordinate. For coworking communities and their members, there’s Included.co’s Coworking Secret Santa. Both coworking community managers and individual coworking members can sign up to participate in the network wide program.
All the participant needs to do to submit for matching is complete a profile on Included and connect to their space of choosing (or submit to add their space if not already listed). You’ll be matched up with a fellow participant and receive their profile and mailing info. Based on their interests, send something cute (costing no more than €7/$7/£7) to your match, and get a gift from another member who got matched to you.
In it’s third year, this unique spin on Secret Santa allow members of coworking communities the world around to connect and meet new people all while helping community managers with one less thing to worry about during the holiday season.
More Than Just Benefits
Ok, so group benefits and discounted purchase offers are not unique. The idea of leveraging buying power of audiences is not new, and there are a lot of them out there for a lot of different reasons. It doesn’t mean A) that they are all worth it or B) that they are all the same.
Founded in early 2014, Included.co supports 373 entrepreneurial communities in 56 countries made up of thousands of coworking users. Benefits for all users are win win: members get easy access to discounted services, managers have a tool to offer their members and the vendors connect with new customers.
It’s their top tier customer service and dedication to the mission that makes Included.co stand apart. The discounts and deals are also pretty good too. 😉 You can sign up as a coworking member whether or not your space is listed, so what are you waiting for?
