My Remote Internship, Exploring the Coworking World – Louise Judd
What’s it like working at LiquidSpace in a remote internship? In this week’s edition of LiquidSpace Voices, Louise offers a solution.
Coworking During my Remote Internship
As the workplace changes, so will the workspace culture and the way we interact with our coworkers and companies. As a remote intern at LiquidSpace, I have come to appreciate the benefits of flexible office space. Most importantly, the culture it creates within our company. The goals of creating an environment of community, collaboration and innovation were clear within the first few days of coworking. Not only do these coworking spaces live and embrace this culture, but so do the people and companies that chose to work at these places. Interning in this work environment has challenged me on how I perceive office space, productivity, and company culture.

The LiquidSpace Way
As companies give independence to their employees, coworking can help create company culture and personal freedom within the workday. Interning at LiquidSpace has revealed the impact of workday freedom on employee satisfaction. Within our company, a common topic of conversations is which city people will visit next. Team members coordinate pop up co-working gatherings around the US that allow us to connect beyond the screen. Using the LiquidSpace platform, we are able to go city to city and explore what the coworking world has to offer. Employees are self motivated and driven to do their jobs because where and when they work is up to them. Yes, they are accountable to be at meetings and hit deadlines, but they are in control of their work-life. As one LiquidSpace employee, Amanda, says “I have perfected the work life balance”.
The Future of Coworking
Not only does a flexible office space model adapt to different schedules, but it also attracts motivated and adaptable employees. It has been shown that people will be more satisfied with their jobs if they feel they have ownership of their time. Being part of this remote internship has opened my eyes to how impactful the coworking world is. LiquidSpace’s adaptable model allows for its employees to prioritize their families and hobbies without feeling like they are sacrificing their job. While more and more companies are looking for this balance, I believe LiquidSpace has created the perfect template for others to follow.
