Jindy Work Space held their official opening last week where local woman, Jo Palmer, was hosted by Snowy Mountains Innovation Network to present her ‘The Remote Working Forum – Learn the Tools of the Trade’.
Jo is the founder of Pointer Remote Roles and the 2019 NSW-ACT Agricultures Rural Women’s Award and the purpose of her joining locals is to familiarise those with tools and help collaborate with clients and staff working remotely.
“By doing this forum I aim to build confidence in both business owners and professionals to consider remote work as an option for business growth and employment,” explained Jo.
Introducing the seven key elements to making remote working possible Jo explained in detail each element and how working remotely is beginning to become a popular form of employment in Australia.
The seven key elements included Workday (location, schedule, responsibilities, tasks, tools etc.); Communication (tools used to communicate with remote workers); Workflow (Tasks, times, deliverables managed with online tools); Productivity and time management (Prioritizing tasks etc.); Teams (trust and collaboration); Compliance (best practice); and Work ethic.
A group of like-minded business owners and staff gathered at the Jindy Work Space, located next to the Commonwealth Bank in Nuggets Crossing, to take part in the forum and ask questions along the way.
This two hour event was the first of many to be held at the newly established Jindy Work Space. This co-working space is the beginning of a drive to foster innovation and entrepreneurship in the Snowy Mountains.
This top-level space includes three private board rooms for conferences or private meetings and can be hired out. Otherwise the space is open with six desks all equipped with power point access and Wi-Fi for all to use as a quiet place to work.
Regular events such as this forum will be held at Jindy Work Space as an opportunity to learn new business skills, meet other businesses, printing facilities, refreshments and a vibrant, safe community.
Partners of Jindy Work Space Duncan Isaksen-Loxton and Matthew Bell have worked hard to get the space up and running for the use of the public and are pleased with the turn out of their first business event.
“Thank you, Jo, for coming along to Jindy Work Space today and presenting this business forum to us. This informative forum will be the first of many to come,” said Duncan.
