Find your office sharing soulmate

Perfect Match Blog Hero
Ready to find your shared office soulmate? Look no further! Just like in dating, finding the right office (and partner to share it with) can be a journey filled with heartbreak and disappointment, but don't worry, we're here to help your best office partner.


1 | Know what you want: Make a list of your space requirements, whether it's the size, the number of desks, or available equipment...

List what you currently need and don't speculate on where you will be in 1, 2, or 3 years. Now that flex offices are available, it's no longer necessary to project so far ahead. The important consideration is what you need now; offices that enable efficient work and make your team feel good. There is no pressure since you have the ability to rent short-term, and no panic if your needs or wants change in a few months. All you need to do is find another office partner to share with.


2 | Follow your heart: What type of work environment do you thrive in? Quiet or sociable? Pet-friendly? Are you sure your ideal office vibes match your team's personality?

Of course, you're at the office to work, but your company culture is super important. Therefore, you must make sure that your team is at ease alongside the team with whom you're sharing offices. If you're a young and hip company, and you find yourself sharing with a rigid corporation that requires a 3 piece suit, there isn't a high likelihood of your office sharing being a success. So, make sure you define ahead of time what kind of team, profiles, and personalities you'd be happy to be around on a daily basis. It would also be worthwhile to list criteria that may seem insignificant, but can sometimes make a huge difference, such as the proximity of a good café or even a McDonald's. Understand that writing down your emotional criteria will help you make better strategic decisions. 


3 | Use the right tool: Search for your perfect match on, the user-friendly platform that will help you find the best options on the market.

With all the criteria you’ve defined, all you have to do is go to, the easy and intuitive site that will allow you to find the best potential office partners in a few clicks. You can select your favourites and even share them with the rest of your team to get the opinions of other colleagues. We know how much the opinion of those you trust counts ;) 


4 | Make a good first impression: When reaching out, introduce your team with a descriptive message that showcases your company's culture and goals.

When you reach out for the first time, make sure to include as much information as possible about your company and your team. Do not miss this valuable opportunity to make the right impression! It's important that your potential office partners understand who you are, your company culture, and what matters to you through a few lines of text. Remember that depending on your needs, this partner might be part of your daily office life, so it is key to share your values and the things that are important to you.



5 | Get to know each other: After the contact request, take the opportunity to discuss via chat with your future office "roommates"

After the first contact, it's time to chat a little. With, you can ask all the questions you want to your potential office mates who want to share their offices via the integrated chat. This is the perfect chance to be sure that you really match, and to decide on your future first visit/encounter.




6 | Schedule a date: This is the long-awaited first meeting and tour of your potential future office!

You can’t rent what you haven’t seen! Use the scheduling feature to find the best time to visit your potential offices and familiarise yourself with the location and environment. Most importantly, use this time to get to know your potential office mates in person. How do you feel when you walk into the office? What is the vibe? Is it noisy or are there distractions you won’t be able to handle? Keep in mind, if the office seems too quiet, it might be due to empty workstations. When your team arrives, it could become more lively.


7 | The One: there's no more doubt - you've made a match. Time to get started with this new partnership! 

Congratulations! You can now breath easy - you've found your new office and your new office mates!



8 | Seal the Deal: You found the perfect match! Time to make it official by signing the terms of your agreement.

Like in all relationships, it's important to understand what you're getting into and therefore to align on your terms from the start. Make sure to be clear from the beginning to avoid unnecessary stress. 


9 | Set the Ground Rules: To keep things running smoothly, work together to establish your everyday rules in the office

Like with any roommate situation or relationship in general, it's good to establish rules that allow you to share space peacefully. Even for short-term relationships!


10 | Let the Good Times Roll: Congratulations! You're sharing an office now!

Sharing an office can be more of an advantage than you know. In addition to your now-evident economic advantages, this solution is conducive to new experiences, as well as the creation of synergies, exchanges, or associations of skills. 



As an added bonus: on, you don't need to commit to long-term relationships. If in 4, 6, or 12 months, you want to change office mates, we will have plenty of others to introduce to you.
