A Quiet Zone worth shouting about
A remodelled space at the Digital Greenhouse will provide a Quiet Zone for the local business community, thanks to support from Sure.
The space has been specifically designed to provide the Greenhouse’s members a quieter place for focused work. Sure has donated desks, monitors, laptop docks, wireless keyboards and mice to ensure the space is fit for purpose.
Due to the lockdown in the Bailiwick, many islanders would have been working from home without the correct equipment or with the distraction of family life. This investment from Sure will provide users with a distraction-free area to work.
Justin Bellinger, Chief Executive at Sure in Guernsey, said: “It’s great to see this Quiet Zone open, it’s been in the planning for a while now. We listened to the Digital Greenhouse team on what their members needed to become more efficient and were pleased to be able to help by supplying the equipment.
“Covid-19 has been a huge setback for many businesses and start-ups, but it has also given others the impetus to set up a business or spot an opportunity. Entrepreneurs and small businesses will be a vital part of Guernsey’s ‘Revive and Thrive’ strategy and this new resource will provide a digitally enabled space for those with vision and ambition to start and grow their own enterprise.”
The Quiet Zone was planned to open earlier in the year but delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Now the Bailiwick is in phase 5, the Digital Greenhouse is open and welcoming members old and new.
Lucy Kirby, Director at the Digital Greenhouse, said: “We are very pleased to be adding this additional quiet space to our hotdesking now we are able to re-open to our members. Since lockdown caused us to work from home, we’re expecting many users to need a quiet space away from the noise of home life.
“Of course digital enablement is at the heart of many businesses’ strategies so this space, thanks to Sure’s support, will be ideal for many of our members.”
The Quiet Zone is a hot desk area, open to the Digital Greenhouse’s members.
