3 MIN READ – With so many people dragging their feet back to the office, let’s take a moment to envision what your new, ideal workday could look like with Convene.
Convene is a leading hospitality partner and provider founded on the thesis “What if you ran an office building like a hotel?” From there, we made it our mission to elevate the way people meet, work, and live by reimagining what “a workday” means for today’s most innovative organizations. From thoughtfully designed meeting and event spaces to custom worksuites and a fully staffed members only coworking experience, your “back to the office” adventure can’t get much better than this. Just imagine…
You take public transit into the iconic downtown Chicago Loop. No need to factor in the travel time to stop for your morning coffee because you know there’s a cold brew on tap waiting for you at the office, complete with just the right amount of oat milk. You use your badge to check into the Citadel building and pop up to the 14th floor with a stunning view of the city waiting for you at the top. You’re greeted by this…
Time to head into your private, full furnished, and badge protected WorkSuite. Once you drop your bag at your sit-stand desk, you see one of your favorite office mates is in today too! You grab them and head out to nourish (our complimentary premium stocked snack bar and pantry) for that crisp cold brew and catch up after what feels like, and probably is, YEARS.
You both notice that there’s a lunch program today to chat with the gym manager from the 12th floor. Wait, you didn’t realize there was a complimentary gym membership included with your badge. Plus a lunch menu thoughtfully curated by Convene’s first in class chefs and prepared onsite just for your office? Who knew?
You’re knocking out emails left and right, fueled by your unlimited coffee and snacks, and when the time comes for a quick one on one with your colleague, you’re ready for a change of scenery to get those creative juices flowing. How about a conference room with lake views? Thought so.
Before heading out your boss says the magic words - “Happy Hour”. Your team heads to the 12th floor ROOFTOP that’s only available for building tenants to enjoy a complimentary glass of wine. Time to dust off those social skills and talk about something other than back-to-back virtual meetings and how “you’re still on mute” - whew, what a day! Cheers to you and thanks for collaborating with Convene.
