The second wave of COVID-19 is hitting Vietnam and team leaders are understandably worried.
Like many of us, your team’s health and safety is the first priority. And with modern collaboration and communications tools, it’s perfectly possible for a lot of leaders to work with their team remotely.
That doesn’t mean that this is the case for everyone though. For certain companies, it’s hard to have people work remotely. Examples include sales teams, developer teams, and teams that rely on creative collaboration.
And, as we’ve seen during the first wave, there are also plenty of employees who simply don’t have…
This past Saturday, together with Ruby Nguyen and the MoveUp team, we delivered an interactive online session about Culture in the Workplace.
Because it’s our collective belief that in a post-COVID world, focusing on strong company culture is key to attract and retain your people.
When employees started working from home, and when the normal flow of business was disrupted, the question became: how do you prevent disengagement — and resignations?
Especially in a market like Vietnam, where many organizations compete for the same talent and where retention is already a big issue.
Companies have realized that they…
If you’re like us, an owner or key stakeholder in a fast-growing company here in Vietnam, you may be working on getting back into the regular swing of things. While at the same time you’re still working through the challenges from the first hits of the crisis. And, on top of that, managing your day-to-day operations. That’s not easy.
At the same time, we also see some of our member companies taking advantage of the opportunities that this situation has created. …
We keep telling ourselves how lucky we are that we are in Vietnam during the COVID-19 outbreak. The government has acted swift and put strict preventive measures in place as early as February. As of today, the counter on the Health Department’s website reads: 255 confirmed cases, 64 people cured and 0 diseased. Incredible, in a country of 100 million people.
So, cases of COVID-19 are low in Vietnam relative to other parts of the world. And the authorities wants to keep it like that. At least once per day we receive messages about what we can do, individually and…
Today marks Random Acts of Kindness Day. Research shows that kindness can make a huge difference in people’s everyday work experience. So what is kindness? What are the benefits? And how can we generate more of it in the workplace— well beyond today?
The Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley says Kindness is crucial, highlighting it as one of the 4 key pillars of happiness at work.
The Center defines Kindness as “orienting our thoughts, feelings, and actions towards care for others and genuinely supportive social bonds. …
Or: “Myth-Busting the notion that Coworking is only for Creatives and other Freelancers who want to enjoy some free coffee in a hip space.”
As we celebrate the Lunar New Year, we look again at the Dreamplex mission of positively impacting our members, personally and professionally. What is it that we as a coworking provider can actually do to significantly affect our members’ lives?
During those New Year holiday ponderings, with the Rat representing the “beginning of a new day”, we first need to acknowledge what most people would say is the benefit of coworking. …
With 90,000 hours (if not more) spent on work, it’s clear why we urgently need to focus on mental wellbeing in the workplace.
As a coworking space, we don’t have direct control over the work experience of our members beyond certain factors. We do set the tone by designing positive workplaces, creating a strong community, and actively helping our members to grow, personally and professionally.
Still, a certain remaining percentage of how well our members are doing is in the companies they work for, their managers, and maybe more than anything, themselves.
Even with so much being out of control…
No matter how beautiful your office, how wonderful your team… work-life can be challenging, overwhelming and at times, outright stressful. But good news, there are many small things you can do that immediately improve your current situation! The key is simply to stop and snap out of your auto-pilot behavior.
This level of psychological wellbeing at work now occupies a central place in the agendas of public and private organizations. As we shared in our first post, holistic wellbeing (helping people work healthier, mentally and physically) is a key pillar of how we approach designing our coworking space.
With over 90,000 hours spent on work — are you working well?
The connected and competitive world we live in today has driven us to be working almost 24/7. If we’re not at work, we’re thinking about work, or we’re processing what has happened during our workday.
A new generation is out there every day, to prove to their parents and society at large that they can be more successful than anyone ever before. They clock in and dwell away for long hours in uninspiring offices. …
