Best of the South!
We were surprised and honored to be featured in StyleBlueprint as one of the top Coworking Spaces in the South! Go to find out, StyleBlueprint is the "New Southern Living" according to my hip sister-n-law!
What's so great about this article? It's confirmation that work doesn't have to be mundane and lonely! Work is more than a cubicle and a computer. We strive at Mantle. to give that to you, our members.
At Mantle., we are a community first and an office space second - come for the networking, the drinks, the sweat and tears - during workouts and movies, come to grow your own pearl. Stay because its an awesome place to "office".
At the end of last year, we asked y'all to let us know how we can uphold a new "Standard" around Mantle. We wanted to know what we could do better to ensure Mantle. ended up in publications like StyleBlueprint. We also wanted to set the bar for all members since we are a community and we are all in this together.
As a result of that survey, plus conversations with our team and various members, we are excited to publish the New Standards for working at and using Mantle.
The Mantle. Standards can always be found online at www.growatmantle.com/standards.
With no further ado:
Standards are not rules, but they are aspirations we should hope to live up to as members of Mantle. Failure to consistently live up to these standards can be a reason for Mantle. to ask you to leave.
Let us know what you think at www.growatmantle.com/meritocracy.
Standard No. One. Members leave things as they arrived at them, if not better.
Standard No. Two. Conference rooms are for meetings, not for having a free office. Reserved rooms must be booked through the app. Members will abide by the five minute drop in window in meeting and lounge spaces. Members will be aware of bookings when dropping in and immediately give way to another member that has booked any given space or table through the app.
Good Rule of Thumb: Check the meeting space on your app before you step into a room for your 5 minute drop in.
Standard No. Three. We will do your dishes, but we shouldn’t have to. Feel free to rinse your dishes and put them in the dirty dishwasher. If one is not available, please feel free to at least rinse your dishes before leaving them in the sink. Please don’t leave food in the sink.
Standard No. Four. Speaking of food, the refrigerator is for parking your food during the day. Do not leave food in the fridge overnight. Food left in the fridge may get tossed. Don’t leave condiments here, grab packets and not the wholesale ketchup tub.
Standard No. Five. Please push in your chair. Please put the furniture you moved back from whence you moved it.
Standard No. Six. Your space is your space. Decorate it how you like. Let’s all try to stay somewhat neat!
Standard No. Seven. Mantle. is a twenty-one and up work club. We have open beer taps for the convenience of our members. Do not bring your children to Mantle. We know there are emergencies. If you must bring anyone under 18 to Mantle., please reserve a lounge room or meeting room through the app and work out of that space for the entirety of the time your child is at Mantle. If you are working with a 18-21 year old, it is your responsibility to monitor that person and ensure they do not have alcohol while at Mantle.
Side note: Speaking of alcohol responsibility. You are responsible for any guest, no matter their age, if they drink any alcohol while at Mantle.
Standard No. Eight. Guys, lift the toilet seat before you go number one. Please put it back down when you are done.
Thanks! The Girls.
Standard No. Nine. You may close the doors to common spaces. However, if what you are doing makes it seem like other’s should not enter, you should leave a note that they can indeed come in.
Important aside: If you don’t want others coming into a common space while you are in it, you should have it rented through the app.
Standard No. Ten. If you feel like you are getting too good of a deal, you probably are. Reserve your rooms when you use them. When you squat in a conference room or host an event without renting the space, you are not only cheating Mantle., you are cheating your fellow members who are also paying for access to that space.
As always, Thanks and Grow a Pearl.
