10% of the UK population are dyslexic, 4% have ADHD & 1% are on the Autism spectrum. These are just the people who’ve been diagnosed, so numbers are prob higher.
Variety & adaptability are key when it comes to creating an environment that accommodates everyone. #Neurodiversity
Pro-tip for back to the office:
Don't disturb people when they're alone having lunch wearing headphones.
They likely need that personal recharge time.

4 - 8 minutes is all you need to complete the Coworking Trends Survey.
Go ahead and share it with your community and network of #coworkingspaces, a survey is only useful if enough people take part.
Hybrid working means businesses are reassessing office space, determined to focus on people and create a welcoming space for everyone.
To avoid an expensive refit, work with the space already available and add in plug & play options ⬇️

Lots of data in this piece by @lucasmearian
“Companies that have embraced the hybrid workplace are looking for less office space and more flexible facilities to accommodate the variable number of employees who come in.”
If you have to be inside, bring the outside with you 🌱
Time Magazine recently confirmed that just 15 minutes in nature can make you happier. For those in urban landscapes, pictures of forests and lakes are the next best thing.

Congratulations to @furkankarayel for the launch of your book #InclusiveIntelligence. My trustee highlighter is very excited to get stuck in!
It has been a pleasure getting to know Furkan since we met at 2019 Women In Tech conference. #DiversityandInclusion #BookRecommendation
The thing about pods with glass both sides is you can feel a bit like a goldfish. A Nook Huddle has a removable back panel. Want to see the world around you? Cool, remove it. Prefer a little more privacy? Pop the back panel back on. That’s the great thing about agile furniture.
To help increase the capacity for meeting spaces, Ridgeview Wine Estate invested in two 4-seater huddle pods and two one-person solo booths from @nookpod, providing the business with a flexible range of options: http://ow.ly/4NwF50GVAsf
Thank you to everyone in the Nook family, our customers, friends, and loyal supporters all over the world. It means more than you know.

Some of us are not very good at blowing our own trumpet when it comes to celebrating successes. So, we’re going to take this moment to loudly and proudly share some of the victories won along the way...
Whether you’re a fan of subtle branding, personalising a Nook is easy. Brand coloured cushions, branded wrapping, logo on the back wall, or all three.
The most important part is that you’re offering a quiet space to concentrate.
Navigate #Inclusion, #Diversity, #Equity, #Accessibility for yourself and your members.
Until technology takes over and goes all Terminator on us, we’re still big tech fans!
This workspace booking system can be integrated with Nooks, offering availability with a red/green light system through a QR code.

People notice when you put them first. Acoustics, comfort, light, plugs - all of these things influence whether a person will return to a space or not.

“If you're redesigning your workplace for post-Covid reality, it's vital you include spaces like Nook. Being #Dyslexic, the open office is a horribly distracting experience for me. Nook allows me a quieter space to focus on key tasks throughout the day”
