Customer Success Stories
Since February 2022, the Hitachi Energy Group and its 700 employees have been based at our Mannheim-Taylor satellite on a transitional basis. The 700 employees of the group flexibly use 100 fixed workstations. Through the cooperation of 1000 Satllites and the Real Estate Department of Hitachi Energy, it was possible to meet the individual needs of the company. Hitachi Energy currently occupies 2 separate wings, which also have their own kitchen, meeting rooms and various retreat facilities.
At 1000 Satellites, we have found an incredibly friendly atmosphere with competent and empathetic colleagues who will give us a home until we move to our new building. This gives us the opportunity to gain our first experience of New Work in a modern working environment and to try out a wide variety of environments.
Susann Schröder, Corporate Real Estate Manager
We are happy to have the company on board and to continue to learn from each other in order to make New Work even more attractive with the help of decentralized corporate coworking.
Two years ago, Tanja Seiler moved to home office – not because of Corona, but because she decided to become self-employed after 20 years of corporate experience. Tanja told us in an interview what motivated her to do so: “Too many strong female leaders still feel torn between their dream career and a fulfilling private life. As a mindset and success coach, my mission is to help these women live a life full of happiness, health and prosperity at all levels.” Tanja is very happy with her online business, but there is one thing she misses most in her home office: people. The need for random encounters at the coffee machine and a more structured workday led Tanja to coworking.
Her search for a coworking space where she felt comfortable finally ended at 1000 Satellites. “Nice company in the office, a height-adjustable desk, two large screens, a beautiful view of the greenery – I didn’t have this luxury before,” Tanja says. The productive working atmosphere at 1000 Satellites gives her space to think strategically and be creative.
But apart from the attractive premises, it was the friendly and colorful coworking community that convinced Tanja to stay. According to Tanja, the community management’s commitment to bringing the coworkers together and introducing them to each other is particularly noteworthy: “You feel very cared for and it is super easy to make new connections.” She reports that the lively exchange with coworking colleagues has even given rise to new business ideas. But it is not only the community itself that has inspired Tanja. Through her positive experiences at 1000 Satellites, she has also discovered the topic of “New Work” for herself. As Tanja’s awareness of decentralized working and future-oriented work concepts has sharpened, she has recently started advising her clients at management level on this particular topic.
Coworking – for Tanja “the perfect symbiosis” of new relationships and impeccable working conditions. Whereby the former is especially close to her heart: “My favorite coworking moment was definitely having a barbecue together during the lunch break in summer.”
For Tanja, the “co” in “working” has become essential. What about you?

Events @ 1000 Satellites
Creative & productive in Taylor
SAP Experience Garage - Project team
“Think about something new quickly.” But how can that be done without new encounters, new impressions?Events such as the SAP Expierencegarage Hackathon create space for creative ideas. Collectively, we bring the topic of New Work to life. In the end, we all decide together what our work should look like in the future. One team not only won the SAP Hackathon, but also directly tested the principle of coworking at 1000satellites.
Hybrid Events at 1000 Satellites
External event from Marketingclub Rhein-Neckar e.V.
As a New Work pioneer, we are enthusiastic about the flexibility of this concept. That’s why we are planning hybrid events more and more frequently. We are particularly pleased when external hybrid events take place in our locations. On Tuesday, 01.02.22, the Marketing Club Rhein-Neckar e.V. was live and virtual at Satellit Taylor with a presentation about the importance of a community that was also exciting for us.
Besides the repeated phrase “It’s so nice to be able to look live into faces”, we think it’s great that the hybrid concept brings together physically distant people and ensures health safety at the same time.
With the right planning, technology and moderation, any hybrid event becomes an experience for everyone who attends. For example, we recently added “animal” technical support – our 360° Meeting OWL completely captures the real world for virtual participants.
We are looking forward to hosting many more hybrid events in our Spaces. Click here to visit our event areas.
Our coworking spaces not only offer “space” for productive work, but also look great. The professional atmosphere also comes into its own in photos. The start-up team Versicherungsfuzzis thought so too, generating suitable photos for their social media presence.
“We especially liked the modern open spaces, the productive atmosphere and the warm welcome from the team,” said the Versicherungsfuzzis.
Many thanks to you for transforming our spaces into a creative photo studio and for allowing us to welcome you to our coworking family.
Creativity meets productivity
Teambuilding Workshop from Freudenberg FST GmbH at 1000 Satellites
At the end of June 2022, a team from Freudenberg FST GmbH met for an internal teambuilding workshop at our satellite Taylor in Mannheim. This was the first time the Freudenberg FST GmbH team and 1000 Satellites got to know each other. Despite an unforeseen event on the side of the Freudenberg FST team, a successful 2-day workshop could be initiated with the support of our team. At this point, we are very pleased to have been able to provide exceptional assistance to the Freudenberg team.
The 12-member team used our Innovation Space with all its facets. This enabled the squad to experience a creative and, above all, very productive time. “The equipment in the room was super easy, flexible and quickly convertible,” said Dorothee Kiss, Digital Business Consultant at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. The office materials provided and the flexibly convertible furniture were particularly helpful. Fun Fact: The ergonomic seating balls in particular seemed to have been the most sought-after seating item. “The seat balls were on trend and always directly occupied,” Dorothee said with a smile.
Worth mentioning for Dorothee was the smooth event organization and execution. As another aspect, she reported the advantage of separating the event area from the rest of the coworking action. “We thought it was great that we were to ourselves and didn’t disturb anyone else by separating the space. This allowed us to communicate completely freely. The curtains inside the Innovation Space were also ideal for breakout sessions,” says Dorothee. In the evening, the busy bees were rewarded with a BBQ on our Taylor Terrace.
On the second day, the productive workshop came to an end with a joint outdoor walk & talk session in Taylor Park. A great change of pace that generated great enthusiasm from all.
It makes us happy to see a team enjoying using the multi-faceted offerings of our Spaces.
Thank you very much to the Freudenberg FST GmbH team for being with us. You are welcome back at any time. We’ll also make sure there are more sitting balls – that’s a promise. 😊
What our coworkers say
Our community is diverse and brings together coworkers with different professional backgrounds from the region. Take a look at their experiences.
"For me, happy coworking is above all the exchange with the community."
"Thank you so much for the warm welcome to you at Satellite Wachenheim. You managed to place me gently and comfortably in the "coworking chair" - despite the many news on my part and my just started advanced training. I felt super comfortable and enjoyed the atmosphere and tranquility. I was able to move and talk completely undisturbed while working. That was immensely beneficial. If I had any questions, you were immediately on hand to help me. Great! Thank you for the wonderful day with you. I would very much like to take advantage of the offer again."
"Top of the line equipment, a dedicated team and an inspiring community - 100% recommendation."
"I like to come to the coworking space when I want to work in peace: no distractions from kids and family, a cozy, inviting work atmosphere with excellent working technology and, what's more, within easy reach of my bike. This also saves me the time I would otherwise have spent in the car on the way to the company office. I also enjoy face-to-face or hybrid meetings with colleagues in the coworking space - the technology works better than in the company! Flexible working suits me very well. It corresponds to my reality of life to decide every day anew what is the best working environment for me today and the regular visit to the coworking space has become an integral part of my everyday working life."
"The main reason I come to the coworking space is for a better work-life balance. Specifically, my kids are going to school near here soon (and we live on the other side of the Rhine though), so the location at the Taylor is perfect for me. Aside from the fact that it's about 5 min from the school, I like the atmosphere/modern space. You have everything from technical equipment, but also snacks, food, coffee, etc. and additional retreat options such as phone boxes, quiet rooms... All in all, a definite added value to the home office. And starting in September, my plan is to work from here 3 times a week."
"I love to work in the 1000 Satellites office in Neustadt, it offers a nice work environment. The space design fosters my creativity and I can easily interact with BASF colleagues (e.g. sustainability). It is a quiet environment to work and to be productive in. I have been working in the 1000 Satellites coworking spaces since July 2021 and plan to continue using it."
"For me, co-working was always just something for freelancers or start-ups. Meanwhile I like to visit your Spaces several times a month and see you as a 3rd alternative to the office and home office."
"Already the registration was very easy for me due to the spontaneous and quick support, the booking was then a piece of cake. On my first day, it continued in the same way, the introduction on site was great, I was surprised by the really many possibilities and immediately tried out the bike in one of the telephone boxes during the first "telephone appointment". It's great that you have relaxation loungers. The flat rate for water and coffee is great, you can concentrate fully on your work and, as a "coffee junkie", I can just grab it without having to worry about it. The workplace itself is pleasant; after connecting to the internet, I quickly logged into the Roche VPN and was already in my element and could start working in the Taylor satellite. The whole ambience here is super homely and I felt at home straight away."
