Why Workfolk PH Is One of Makati's Hip And Upcoming Co-Working Spaces
Julia Arenas | Dec 10, 2018
In the competitive age of many pristine co-working spaces, it’s a challenge for one to stand out. Whether they’re defined by their reasonable rates, sleek interior, their amenities, or even the communities and companies they shelter, every co-working space team ultimately tries to be well-rounded and top notch when it comes to what they offer. In Salcedo village, on the 9thfloor of M1 building at 141 H.V. Dela Costa Street, nests Workfolk PH, the first product of its kind under the HII (Hospitality Innovators, Inc.) umbrella.
Refreshing one's self in between the gaps of the hustle is no problem of course, with Workfolk's free-flowing coffee, tea, or water. A nearby kitchen and pantry area adjacent to the main lounge with 24/7 maintenance and cleaning makes mealtime simple in this urban setting.
What ultimately puts Workfolk on another level versus other co-working spaces throughout the Metro is the default connection with HII umbrella’s vast network of partner hotels with special room packages.
Apart from the chic and contemporary aesthetics, Work Folk brings the hospitality level of standards to the office environment.
Workfolk has had app developers, customer service departments, even maritime companies set up shop within, and the setting and according to them, the services have been very conducive in terms of what they’d like to accomplish as companies.
In the beginning, the company was looking for ways to innovate and update the concept of a hotel business center/lounge and there was a strong desire to create a youthful, collaborative space that was both inspiring and professional. Co-working was the logical solution given the market's demand for flexible workspaces.
With a strong background in operations and financial acumen, the team felt that putting together a co-working and flexible office space would be a good move in the right direction.
Clients may take advantage of HII's extensive network of hotels with special room packages. It is now the one-stop-shop for clients to work, hold meetings, mount events, and house their clients/visitors in partner hotels.
As for solo entrepreneurs and freelancers, they’ve had very nice things to say about the workstations within Workfolk, and what they're able to achieve as a result.
Not only is it a place where the facilities and space really do help out with getting work done, but Workfolk have received feedback that the hospitality background does come through.
While expanding and opening up another branch would be something that Workfolk looks forward to, they are focused on getting the brand established and familiar with walk-ins and longterm clients.
