11 Reasons to Attract Different Generations to Your Coworking Space

1. Create a rich culture and coworking community

Coworking communities thrive on different people interacting.

2. Bring in a diversity of skills and work experience

The more skills and experience in a coworking community, the better.

3. House a variety of perspectives, personalities and life experience

Everyone has something valuable to offer a coworking community.

4. Challenge assumptions about age and generational differences

Individuals are so much more than the cultural stereotypes we’re fed.

5. Create collaborative possibilities

Great collaborations stretch across different ideas, perspectives and ages.

6. Set an inclusive vibe

Don’t forget to be age inclusive in your coworking space.

7. Tap into the earned wisdom of each generation

Embrace the massive amount of earned wisdom different generations bring—much of it unappreciated and untapped.

8. Avoid monoculture

Cultures of sameness are boring. Create something extraordinary.

9. Create a culture of mutual support

Members of all ages helping and supporting one another will create a strong, resilient and lasting brand community.

10. Reflect your extended community

People have to be able to see themselves in your community before they’ll want to join your community.

11. Fun, friendship and belonging

Thriving coworking communities are places of belonging—whoever your members and market may be. Extend this sense of belonging to people of all ages and your space will thrive.

Bonus: Inspire cross-generational mentorship

Having a mix of generations in a coworking space can foster opportunities for both reverse and traditional mentorship, enriching the community with shared knowledge and experiences.
