“As a regular user of the Hub I now have over 4 hours every week, to do the things I want. This includes spending precious time with my family and having the ability to exercise on a day I normally wouldn’t. The biggest improvement I’ve noticed is that after sleeping in and the short drive to the Hub, I arrive ready for work in a completely different frame of mind. I am also fresher when I arrive and my outlook on Fridays is even better. If you are considering working from here Stop thinking about and just do it! My manager is totally supportive as it helps give me a better work/life balance. Once you’ve spoken with Nexus and had a tour of the office you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!”- M.C, member since March 2015
“Working at the Hub 2 days a week has been fantastic for me. Personally, I have a shorter almost non-existent commute, I’m saving money and am getting to spend more time with the family and professionally, I get more done, I have fewer distractions and am able to plan my days much better. It’s a win-win for all.”- Member since June 2015
“Working at the Nexus Smart Hub has been enormously beneficial for me, as my travelling time is reduced from 3 hours per day to 30 minutes per day. This means a great deal to my family and to my personal heath. Daily commuting does take a toll on family life, as there are days when you are literally just getting up going to work and then going home to sleep. Working at the Nexus Hub means that for the days when I can reduce my travel time I can enjoy dinner as a family, and do other normal family things. This has the most value. I thank my boss every day for having the foresight and confidence to allow me to be a hubber!
The benefit that my employer gets from me working at the Nexus smart hub are:
- Increased productivity, as it is very quiet with no distractions
- Connectivity to all my office requirements is fantastic and in some instances, better than in my office
- I can be at work for a longer period, as I am not just commuting. So instead of being locked in to a train timetable, – I can spend that extra 15 – 30 minutes finishing something off without massive impact to both my employer and my family
- On days when I need to attend a medical or personal appointment. I do not have to take the whole day off, I can take a half a day and work the rest of the time at the Hub. this is fantastic.
I would strongly advise anyone who has the opportunity to be a hubber to discuss this with their employer and to call to have a look around. I have made some valuable contacts and I am now working 3 days at the Hub per week and 2 my Newcastle office. I am very fortunate and grateful for this flexibility.” – Margaret Paterson, Business Strategist from Crown Lands
“As a day to day professional consultant and with an interest in kicking off a Start-up, the move to Nexus with its A-Grade spaces and technological infrastructure was a no-brainer for me. What I didn’t expect were the networking opportunities and freelancer resources that have come with it – which has made kicking off the Start-up a lot simpler and the opportunity far more profitable and achievable.”- Daniel Stay
