Phil Kirschner, Senior Expert, McKinsey Real Estate and Organizational Transformation practices, has a pretty unique perspective on coworking & flexible workspace. On this episode, he shares a personal experience using a coworking space for a last-minute client call first thing in the morning...and how that sent off both literal and figurative alarms for him.

On this episode, we talk about: 

- How is the perspective about flexible workplace / coworking changing for large enterprise companies?

- How are large enterprises using flexible workplace / coworking to inform and implement their post-pandemic workplace strategies?

- What are the benefits and challenges of increased adoption of flexible workplace / coworking by employees of large enterprises?

- What can smaller operators do to improve the experience of enterprise members, both the decision-makers and the individual user?

Every time Mitch Gray spoke to a group or a new client, he heard "Our biggest business challenge is that t's really hard to find good people." He had discovered a simple approach to his own hiring practice that gave him a constant pipeline of good people. He decided to share this with others. On this episode, we talk about how to always be hiring, why Indeed may not be the best source for local talent, and how to sell our "why" to attract great candidates. Mitch is a member of coworking space Firehouse in Clovis, NM.

Mitch Gray, small business consultant and author of “How to Hire and Keep Great People” shares his insights around hiring and how to get out of the mindset that “it’s really hard to find good people right now.”

On this episode, we talk about:

  • How to shift your mindset so that you can find great people even if it seems like it’s hard to find great people.
  • Why you should “always be hiring” even if you’re not actually hiring. Why Indeed may not be your best source of candidates.
  • Why hiring for culture fit is often more important than hiring for skills. Why you need to know your company’s “why” and sell your “why” to potential candidates.

Cofounders Amirh Davis and Christina Gutierrez met each other through a mutual friend that connected them to work on their mutual passion for coworking and childcare. They renovated a former bank building and opened in March 2, 2020, just a week before the stay-at-home order in response to COVID-19.

They give us a behind-the-scenes experience growing their business during a challenging environment for coworking and childcare.

They share how they attract their members, how they run their childcare model, and advice they’d give to new operators, and anyone considering integrating childcare into their coworking business.

MRP launched its first flexible office concept under Make Offices. Over time, MRP expanded that brand into non-owned assets.

After several years of learning, a global pandemic, and significant evolution in what tenants want from office space, they relaunched a more inclusive building services platform under the moniker “Heyday Properties.”
