Scoring metrics

Each of the 11 metrics is measured on a scale of 1-4. This ensures there is no “average” mark and forces the scoring to determine if something really is above or below average. Each of the metrics is described below (a higher number is better):

  1. Unsatisfactory
  2. Below average
  3. Above average
  4. Excellent

Power

The availability and accessibility of power sockets. Todays digital age requires a lot of juice.

Lighting

The quality and amount of natural and unnatural light (very important for wellbeing and laptop users).

WiFi

The availability of free and high speed internet. With more and more things in “the cloud” and business being conducted over IM and net conferencing, a decent net connection is important.

Chair comfort

Those who work in an office should benefit from a high quality ergonomic chair. The guerilla style co-worker has no such luxury and is subject to the furniture of the establishment.

Size and comfort of table

Nice big tables which allow elbows at right angles when sitting in a chair is important for correct and comfortable posture and a comfortable working space.

Food, drink and snacks

Decent and well priced sustenance is crucial for the worker away from home.

Quality of coffee

Arguably one of the key deciding factors, non-office workers may decide their haunt purely on the deliciousness of the coffee.

Noise

A venue free of screaming children and noisey company parties is required for absolute concentration.

Welcome

This refers to the welcome that you will receive by frequenting a venue and the acceptance of the staff for you to sit there all afternoon drinking the occasional cup of tea.

Ambiance

An incredibly subjective metric, but nevertheless, one which is important for a co-worker to feel relaxed.

Availability

The likelihood of getting a seat at said venue.
