Workshop: How to make one?

The Workshop It is the meeting of people with common interests who share knowledge and information through practical activities, with the aim of developing concrete skills. These short exercises are introduced to participants by an instructor who guides them and helps them discuss and execute the activities. We’ll help you understand how to make one.

Organizing an event of this type may require considerable effort, but implementing it in your company can help your employees generate new ideas and develop projects optimally. So, if you’re considering creating a workshop, you need to follow some basic steps:

  1. Plan your event: It is important to plan your session before starting with the main idea of the exercise. It is necessary to take into account where it will take place, the number of people who will participate, the date and duration of the event, as well as the specific objectives to be achieved.
  2. Analyze the target audience: By knowing your customers and potential consumers, you will be able to better understand their needs and be inspired to create new ideas.
  3. Structuring the workshop: Once the audience has been analyzed, it is important to structure the activity. Identifying the skills to be developed among the participants and establishing the topics to be discussed during the activity are fundamental steps. It is necessary to create introductory questions to engage participants and explain post-exercise tasks, such as analysis of results.
  4. Conclusions: When the activity ends, it is essential to draw conclusions. These should reflect both the results of the workshop and the ideas that emerged during the exercise.

Using these steps and encouraging a positive and entrepreneurial attitude, you will be able to carry out your workshop successfully. In Espai 114 we have La Sala, a multifunctional space in the center of Badalona that will be perfect to carry out your workshop.

Networking: Tools and Benefits

Networking consists of the exchange of information between professionals and companies, which share common interests, and which can lead to a work benefit. You never know who will be the person who can give us a new opportunity that will make our professional life take a turn.


Having a networking strategy can be a great benefit to adapt our business to current networking


This term is established not only among professionals, but also between institutions and companies that seek to build long-term relationships for mutual benefit.


In addition, the pandemic and the normalization of remote work have brought to the world of networking another tool that is working in many sectors: online workshops. Great professionals around the world offer online courses that are an opportunity to acquire new skills while being a great way to link professionally and meet professionals whom we could not approach otherwise.


Examples of some benefits of networking:

  • The establishment of a strategic alliance between two companies with the aim of increasing their chances of winning a public tender.
  • Partnering two or more consultants to increase their career opportunities.
  • Collaboration between influencers through social media to benefit from the respective networks of followers.
  • The exchange of contacts in various markets to expand the networks of influence of each company or self-employed worker.



Networking Tools

The first tool of all is LinkedIn, as it is one of the most important professional social networks in the world. When a company profile is created on LinkedIn and the type of company is selected, the algorithm puts us in touch with similar ones. It allows you to connect with new professionals, companies in the same sector and partners with whom to establish new collaborations. It also offers the possibility of announcing and discovering events in a certain sector.


Another platform is Sharp’s. This one is very similar to Tinder but in the business world. It consists of a system of detachable business cards that works as an identifier to match between users.


Another easy way to meet interesting people who add value to our sector are events. The face-to-face relationship provides better communication and closer treatment. These can be industry-specific events, panel discussions, work breakfasts, or after-hours events.


Finally, one of the best options is Coworking spaces. Going to work in an office with other professionals or freelancers is one of the most useful and easy ways to network.

Strategies to prioritize your tasks at work

If it is difficult for you to prioritize your tasks at work with the intention of being more productive and you do not know how to put it into practice, we will tell you a few strategies to achieve it.


The first thing you should do is identify what is important according to your goals. That is, you must understand why you are working and this will help you identify the priority tasks for these future results.


Divide the largest and most general objectives into smaller ones, and establish for them the time you have to meet them. In this way, step by step, it will be easier for you to reach your final goal.


The next step is to prioritize according to importance and urgency. It is essential to know which tasks are fastest or most relevant and we must classify and prioritize them accordingly.


To ensure that these priorities are clear, we can create a list of schedules and write down all the tasks we need to do during the day and the time slot that corresponds to each one.


Another point to consider is effort. What do we mean by that? Once you’ve clarified your to-do list, you’ll need to evaluate which ones require the most dedication. With this in mind, we recommend starting with the simplest ones that take up less time and you won’t get tired so easily.


We also advise you to highlight urgent work. It provides clear visibility into priorities and deadlines. Use colors and schemes to make it more visual. This way you will easily identify which tasks need to be completed earlier and plan ahead according to deadlines.


When the tasks you’re working on aren’t difficult it’s very easy to manage them, but as the difficulty increases, people have more difficulty prioritizing a single goal.


Finally, one tactic to stay focused on each task is to identify possible distractions and avoid them throughout the day.

Having said all this, try applying these tactics to better manage your time and more easily achieve your goals.

Energy savings in the office. It’s possible?

Energy saving. Normally, we talk about the energy saving at house, but it is not the only place where there are excessive energy expenses for the environment, it also occurs in the offices where we work.

We almost spent the same hours in the office as at home, or even longer. That is why we must take similar measures.

Depending on the characteristics of the space we use in the office, there are different ways to save energy.

Now, how can we carry out energy saving systems in our offices, or workspaces such as coworking?

Light and electricity are two very important factors. We can save energy by using LED lights and, if our space makes it possible, by taking advantage of natural light. It is also very important when we leave the office, to leave all electrical appliances off, since even if they remain at rest, they continue to consume electricity.


energy savings

Ventilation and air conditioning are also a relevant part of saving energy. If we can, we must keep the windows open when the outside temperature is pleasant, so we will avoid turning on air conditioners. Similarly, if we have air conditioning or heating on, keep doors and windows closed, for a good use of resources.

Spaces where there are no staff, such as meeting rooms, sinks… We should not keep them refrigerated.

It is also important that the office thermostats are programmed with an optimal and recommended temperature of between 20° and 22° in winter and between 23° and 25° in summer.

And last but not least, saving paper and recycling it is another way to contribute.

Use recycled paper, print as few documents as possible and try to send them online. If they are documents that we must print, we can use the double-sided and the black and white format.

These are some of the options that we can put into practice to contribute to the energy saving on our offices.

Flexible schedule: advantages for your company

Flexible schedule is increasingly implemented by companies. You may have considered implementing it for your workers yourself, but you are not sure of the benefits it entails. Continue reading to get out of doubt.


First of all, what does flexible schedule means?


Flexible schedule consist of offering facilities to workers with regard to the reconciliation of their personal and professional lives. These will comply with the hours stipulated in your contract, but may vary the start and end times, the distribution of them during the week or even carry them out outside the office.


As a company, what are the advantages that the flexible schedule of my workers will bring me?


Commuting to work

– Reduced travel time

There are many employees who spend a large amount of time a day commuting to and from work.


If we eliminate the obligation to go to the workplace to carry out their tasks, workers earn a lot of daily time that they can devote to other things.


productivity at work

– Commitment and productivity

This increase in the freedom of employees translates directly into an increase in motivation and commitment they have with the company.

At the same time, this motivation translates into increased efficiency and productivity.


Workers feel that they make much better use of the time they spend on their work.


reduce fixed costs

– Reduce costs

A direct benefit of flexibility is the savings in the company’s fixed costs. If the number of employees working in the office is reduced or completely eliminated, we can save the cost of rent or consider replacing it with a coworking space that will mean a much lower expense and much more adaptable to our needs.


less absenteeism

– Minimize absenteeism

The high conciliation provided by the flexible schedule means that, in situations such as medical appointments or other types of unforeseen events, the worker chooses to modify the work schedule instead of not doing the hours.


These are just a few of the advantages that flexible schedule can bring to your company.

How to have a good work-life balance doing telework

Having a good work-life balance doing telework can seem difficult. Finding a balance between procrastination and the large volumes of work that lead us to work many more hours than stipulated may seem impossible.


We often find that anxiety levels increase and our motivation plummets. Another common aspect is frustration and loss of confidence in one’s abilities.




Maybe you’ve made a change from face-to-face work to telecommuting and you feel overwhelmed by this new work dynamic. If you want to know how to reconcile doing telework, here are some tips.

  • The place from which you work is different, so the way you work must adapt to this new situation. You face new challenges that will require new ways of facing them.
  • There will be interruptions. Normalize them. You cannot control the external factors that cause you small distractions in your workday and you must face them naturally and not with frustration. If you get a knock at the door when you’re on a video call, for example, you can take it with humor and not frustration. Your interlocutors will thus show more empathy and you will not lose your professionalism.
  • Avoid feelings of loneliness by periodically scheduling meetings with your co-workers or boss. Keeping in touch with people in your professional environment will influence your motivation.
  • Set a disconnection schedule. Just because you work remotely doesn’t mean you have to be available 24/7.
  • Move. It is possible that working from home you have considerably reduced the physical exercise you did daily. Try to replace it by doing activities such as going for a run, doing yoga classes or going to the gym.
  • Working outside the home is always an option. Have you ever considered working from a coworking? The atmosphere is very professional and will help you be more productive. In Espai 114 we have a coworking in the center of Badalona. Do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested.

Return from holiday and how to deal with it

How to deal with the return from holidays?


Once September has begun, few people have yet toreturn to work after a few days off.

Suddenly moving from a state of prolongedrelaxation and recreation to a marked daily routine of tasks and projects, can cause a sudden change that leads to a loss of motivation and interest.


This situation is called post-holiday syndrome and is shown in the form of tiredness, a misaligned sleep cycle, lack of concentration, apathy…

You don’t have to worry if this list of symptoms looks too much like how you feel on your return to work, since this “syndrome” will last a few days before it disappears.

Are you employer, freelance or employed? Either way, consider returning with enthusiasm. Set new goals and objectives to help you maintain motivation. You return from the holidays with the batteries loaded and the new beginnings are accompanied by new opportunities.



Whether you have already finished your days off as if you still have a few to enjoy, the following tips can help you make your return a little easier.

1. If you have not returned yet to work, try not to do so on Monday, as far as possible. In this way, the more advanced the week, the fewer days will remain for the weekend and you will be able to make a more graduated return.

2. Strive to establish sleep schedules that are more compatible with your working day. Make sure you go to sleep early so that the next morning’s awakening doesn’t make you harder.

3. Incorporate physical exercise activities into your daily life, which will help you de-stress and generate serotonin that will improve your mood.

4. Do not forget your social life completely once you start working. Keep scheduling meeting with friends or family to disconnect some time during the week.

5. It is important to take care of the space where you work and make sure that you maintain a good organizationand you have everything ready for your return to work. Otherwise, picking up the pace of work again can be more difficult.

Entrepreneurship in times of (post)pandemic

Are you thinking about starting an entrepreneurship and you are not sure if its the right time? Read on.


We do not dare to say it out loud, but it seems that the light at the end of the tunnel is already closer. It has been (and is still being) a time of change and adaptation to all levels of our lives. Among other things, the COVID-19 pandemic has turned the economy on its head. Sectors that were previously stagnant are now indispensable. Others have become less important or obsolete.


In this situation of transformation and uncertainty, it may seem more risky than usual to take the initiative in the business world. But, times of change sometimes generate very good business and entrepreneurship opportunities.


Therefore, this stage should not take away our desire to embark on new projects both work and personal.


We all agree that this situation has done a lot of damage to different sectors and businesses and has also caused a resurgence of some others.

Some examples of business that, due to the current situation, are booming, are the following.

online training

Online Training. They say that life is a constant learning. Even more so today, when people are preparing more and more for working life. Distance learning has become a necessity during these long months and now it seems that it is here to stay.



E-Commerce. Online shopping increased by nearly 75% during lockdown. 11.5% of today’s online shoppers did not do so before COVID. Surely you have experienced it yourself firsthand. You have bought or buy things through the internet that a few months before you would not have considered not buying in a physical store.



Cybersecurity. It seems that this pandemic has meant an awakening of hackers. Computer viruses and digital hijackings have been part of the day-to-day life of countless companies and individuals. This has created a great need to maintain and strengthen computer and network security.


take away

Food and Take Away: Whether you already have a restaurant or not, the food delivery or take away boom is here. It has in many cases been the only thing that has kept bars and restaurants afloat around the world and consumers have widely appreciated it. Once the worst of this crisis is over, the consumption of food delivery remains one of the preferred options of consumers.


online services

On-site services. During the harshest lockdown, we were very limited in accessing different services. To meet these needs, many companies have started to offer their services at home and these have been very well received. Some examples are beauty, hairdressing and aesthetic services, computer repair services and pet care among many others.


These are just five of the sectors that have gained strength in this adverse situation. We encourage you to take the initiative, either on a personal or professional level. Get out of the workplace and operations center that your home has become during this time and venture into developing your work activity beyond your home.


If you need support or advice for your next venture or your current business, you can count on Espai 114. We offer you tax, labor and legal advice. As well as easy access to financing and public subsidies.

International Women’s Day

Today, March 8, International Women’s Day, we commemorate as every year the long struggle of women for their emancipation and active participation in society.


It is everyone’s job, regardless of gender, to work to end the discrimination still faced by women in many aspects of our society.

Women's First World War

With World War I, women entered the jobs traditionally occupied by men, as they were fighting on the front line. At the end of the conflict, the return of women to their usual posts, with the inferiority of conditions before the war, led to the beginning of their struggle for equal labour rights.


This struggle leads us to the current employment situation, where the pay gapand glass ceilings are still a reality that causes a great imbalance between the opportunities of women and men to reach the same place and achieve the same goals.

women's world of work

Today we can say that women are present in virtually every sector of our economy and at all levels, even if we still have to get more representation at the highest levels within companies.


Women are employees, employers and self-employed. Our workforce contributes, at a minimum, to the same extent as that of men in the economy of our state.


On this International Women’s Day, from Espai 114 we want to remind you that you have at your disposal our Business Center (private offices, coworking, meeting room, entrepreneurship tools, financial solutions and labor, tax and legal consulting service) to support and grow all your professional projects.
