One of the reasons why we love coworking is because of how many different types of spaces there are! Today we’ve got a video tour of one of Office Depot’s new Workonomy Hub Coworking spaces just outside Chicago, IL!
Coworking at Office Depot?
Coworking spaces are popping up EVERYWHERE! We at Coworkaholic can’t get enough of it BUT there are some downsides to everyone getting on the “coworking train”. Alex Hillman, coworking expert and OG who founded Indy Hall in Philadelphia, PA has the perfect quote for this situation. “Coworking is a term that’s become as descriptive as the word restaurant.” To paraphrase: both McDonald’s and The Palm serve hamburgers, but the experiences are really different.
We’ve been to plenty of “coworking” spaces that end up being that but in name only. Yesterday, I got the chance to check out Office Depot’s take on coworking. Low and behold, it’s actually what they say it is! Besides having great hours of availability, a full time community manager AND free snacks, they also incorporate local programs and partnerships.
Thanks to Terry Prange, General Manager of the Office Depot in Evanston, IL for taking time to show us the space and tell us more about Workonomy Hub Coworking!
Workonomy Hub Coworking Pricing & Membership
Workonomy Hub Coworking prices vary slightly between the eight locations that are currently open (with more to come). Some locations offer a “punch card” where you can pre-purchase a set number of day passes. Individual day passes start at $40/day. Monthly memberships start from $100/day for hot desk (first come first served), and also offer guaranteed hot desk space, dedicated desks and private offices!
One of the added benefits of being a full time member (Hot Desk and up) is the ability to access close to 400 other coworking spaces around the world through their partnership with the Proximity Guest Pass.
