The global workforce has seen significant changes and shifting dynamics over the last few years. The most fluid aspect has been where people work from.
When COVID first hit, offices shuttered and many were forced to work from home. Now, as we continue to emerge from the pandemic, not all companies are rushing back to their prior setup. While working from home created new obstacles that had some people ready to return the office, with an ever-present virus, many choosing to move throughout the pandemic, and an increasingly online working environment, filling up company office buildings doesn’t always make much sense. Enter Daybase.
Daybase combines the best aspects of working from home and the office by creating a fully stocked, on-demand workspace. All the standard office amenities one could ask for are available at this coworking concept, with office supplies, “enterprise-grade” WiFi, coffee and tea, various types of workspaces, and an on-site concierge included at each location.
After a successful first venture in Hoboken, New Jersey, Daybase is ready to open up its next hub in Harrison. Located at 326 Halstead Avenue, Daybase Westchester lives in the new AvalonBay multi-family development, right across from the Harrison Metro-North station and no more than a five-minute drive from I-95.
Daybase Westchester will hold its grand opening on Monday, July 25. It brings a smooth solution to a turbulent problem that has left many unsettled and unsure for the last two years while offering a look at the future of the workforce.
“Hybrid work is here to stay with [many] employers indicating a hybrid office model will be their predominant post-pandemic policy. We knew we wanted to be in Westchester to serve so many of the workers who want the flexibility to work close to home at least part of the week, but don’t want to be stuck at home all of the time,” notes Daybase Co-Founder and CEO Joel Steinhaus, when asked why Daybase chose Westchester as its next location.
In order to use the space, patrons purchase a monthly subscription, earning them access to any of Daybase’s locations. After that, they can use the space as frequently or infrequently as needed, whether that’s every day, once a week, or sporadically throughout the month. First-time users can start with a complimentary Daypass; after that, one-day passes go for $18.
Because of the on-demand nature of the Daybase, it can serve fluctuating numbers of people throughout the day and serve different work-style needs all at once because of its various spaces, which range from workstations to meeting rooms. Spaces like meeting rooms and focus rooms are available for reservation via a mobile app.
Daybase also fights the isolation created by the pandemic and working from home, allowing a unique opportunity for people in different fields and companies to work alongside one another.
After successful ventures in the Northeast, Daybase plans to expand across the country. “We’re bringing Daybase to neighborhoods in places like Arizona, Colorado, and Florida to meet this growing demand,” Steinhaus adds. “We’re also planning to open more locations in the Tri-State area soon.”
