Working from home is amazing. Right? Or is it? Like when the dog barks right in the middle of your Zoom meeting, or the kids bust through the office doors, or how that pile of laundry beckons for your time?
If you’re tired of working from home, or miss the vibe of office chatter, you might want to try a coworking or shared office space. It’s an opportunity to build contacts within your community and provide some separation between home and work life. Here are some options in Penticton.
This downtown coworking office (on Nanaimo Avenue) is a hub for remote workers and small business owners, offering both drop-in workspaces by the day and monthly dedicated memberships. They have bookable meeting rooms and coffee on tap. Best of all, it's a welcoming place for newcomers to the city, providing a social Friday evening beer-o-clock gathering (weekly starting at 4:30 p.m.). Cowork also has a second location downtown that provides longer-term desk rentals.
This local branding business offers a hot desk (available by the hour or day) or monthly desk rental in a funky space. It's an opportunity to meet new people and spark some creative energy in a vibe-y setting.
Shared office spaces
There are also numerous options throughout Penticton where you can rent a desk in a communal office space on a long-term basis.
Rent a boardroom
Meeting clients but need a more professional setting than your local coffee shop? The Boardroom on Main is available to book for a more formal meeting, located inside Tiffany's Boutique Mall at 535 Main Street. Email to book or for more information.
