    WorkSocial provides an empowering office space for rent.

The rise of shared and open-concept work spaces filled with unconventional furniture and healthy food has been well documented. WorkSocial, which opened in 2015 in Jersey City, takes shared office space to a new level. Founded by Natasha Mohan, WorkSocial strives to create a shared space for its clients that revolves around connecting, creating and growing within their shared building. 

Members of WorkSocial rent space on the property for their company’s office space, and gain access to the productive environment that Mohan believes is essential to the human side of business. “Our clients connect daily to a new level [of] happiness, so they can create their own movements of growth,” says Mohan. Members of the WorkSocial building have access to daily healthy food (including vegan-friendly options), networking events and frequent lunch events. 

The property, which is full of natural light, has several spaces that can be rented out on a monthly or daily basis. Both training rooms and meeting rooms are available for corporate events. With space for nearly 100 and the option for revenue sharing or certain discounts, the WorkSocial building is a client-centric and empowering place for meetings, trainings or networking. 

Retreats and off-site meetings present wonderful opportunities for groups to collaborate, strategize and build relationships away from their normal office environments. With proper planning, these sessions can be highly effective and even pivotal in setting a new direction. However, off-sites may present some unforeseen challenges that can quickly deflate the energy in the room if not anticipated and addressed in advance.

 

Get ready for fall with this seasonally appropriate cocktail. Corgi Spirits, an independent small-batch distillery located in Jersey City, has hosted a variety of private events including corporate parties; catering is BYO. The Lounge—a plush drinking parlor—is spacious yet cozy and the entire tasting room can be rented to accommodate larger groups.
