Alex and I had been working from home and out of cafés for over 5 years. Having left my corporate job in the city, the first 12 months working from home was a novelty but the initial glamour and convenience of working in ugg boots and putting the washing out in between calls and emails was quickly replaced with feelings of isolation, boredom and being over worked, with a severe lack of work life separation. Being constantly immersed in work and my “to do list” didn’t feel healthy. I was beginning to feel like I was missing out on the camaraderie that stems from working with other people and feeling connected. Finding the right café with high speed internet, a comfortable chair, access to a power point and not too busy or noisy also had its challenges. Alex and I knew that we needed more from our work place and so South Hive was born.
We hope you enjoy working here as much as we do and can't wait to meet you.
