Additional COVID-19 Precautions


It is extremely important to us at desk chair Workspace to keep our members safe and our space clean. Coworking communities, as a service, thrive to allow professionals to have an area outside of their home or remote workplace to be productive as possible, and we want to be able to facilitate that need.

In order to help keep our facility functioning and safe, we have implemented some new changes to the building such as our new HVAC purifying system. While this may not be a feature we see on the day-to-day, it is extremely valuable to the health and well-being of our members and staff.

The pandemic has heightened all of our awareness surrounding health topics and daily activities that could put our health at risk.

Things we are doing: 


  • Blue light surface disinfector
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Sneeze guards in hot desk area
  • Mandatory maks in common areas
  • Socially distanced Dedicated Desk area
  • Motion censored lights and sinks
  • Air purifying system in the HVAC system

“GPS’ technologies are meant for “POP” The three primaiy contributors to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) are: Particulates Odor & Pathogens.

Particulates: During the GPS cleaning process, air­borne particulates (dust, pet dander, pollen) are treated and theQ drawn together increasing their size and mass. Larger particulates are more easily captured effectively increasing the efficiency of a home’s air filters.

Odor & Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs ): During the GPS cleaning process, cooking odors, pet odors and chemical odors, (like formaldehyde) are broken down into basic compounds free of any smell.

"Health has always been, and will continue to be desk chair’s main priority throughout all COVID-19 regulations and beyond."

Advantages of Taking Notes By Hand

You’ve spent your life in front of a keyboard, and thanks to years of practice, can now take notes at a sizzling 300 words per minute. You’ve never been more productive! Not so fast. It may be better if you pick up a pen.

Many experts now champion the advantages of taking notes by hand. Research published in the Association for Psychological Science shows manual note-taking typically leads to better retention and learning when compared to notes generated on a computer.

Advantages of Taking Notes By Hand

Note-taking has two advantages.

The first is pretty obvious: It gives you a reference to help jog your memory about your meeting, professional development class or phone call. You’re making a solid, tangible record of what was said, so when your brain doesn’t come through, you have a hardcopy as a reference.

The second advantage?

When you’re taking notes, you’re actually processing information. You have to evaluate each idea as important or non-important, then finding a way to paraphrase the information itself. It’s counter-intuitive, but speed kills effective note-taking. Because most people write much more slowly than they type, they’re forced to evaluate and paraphrase information as a mere matter of keeping up.

Start typing at blazing speeds, and the need to evaluate and paraphrase evaporates, as many note-takers transcribe conversations nearly in their entirety. That means they’re cutting out two important steps, processes in which their brains get a chance to “handle” the information. And the more time a brain works with key information, the easier it is to recall. Where this really plays out is beyond minor factual details.

Researchers show that college students who manually take notes recall abstract and conceptual information much better than those who take notes on a laptop.

The upshot for business professionals?

It’s time to rely on Moleskine rather than Microsoft and rethink your approach to note-taking. While the slow-and-steady approach might seem clunky, it’s actually one of the biggest advantages of taking notes by hand.
