Exmoor National Park has commissioned WorkHubs CIC to explore the viability of a potential workhub at Wheddon Cross which would support sole proprietors, self-employed, home workers and micro businesses by providing shared facilities and a focal point for micro enterprise on Exmoor.
A workhub is a club-type workspace which provides a place for people to work as members as and when they need it, with a range of facilities from hot desks to rent on a pay as you go basis through to serviced offices. The workhub can cater for a mix of daily and occasional users under one roof providing a special mix of services for people whose business is often home-based.
In order to see if this idea is viable Exmoor National Park Authority really needs small, local businesses, home workers and self-employed people to give their views. If you fit into any of these categories or it is of any interest to you, please go to www.workhubs.com and click on the button in the centre marked Exmoor Workhub to complete a quick survey or join the discussions on the dedicated Facebook page – www.facebook.com/exmoorworkhub.
Whilst it may not be directly relevant to some tourism businesses it probably will be for many of the suppliers and contractors you work with and so everyone is being asked to spread the word if they can.
