Award winning co-living operator and manager B-Hive Living announces that it has been recognised as the world’s best community-building company. The announcement was made at the Co-living Awards ceremony held in Amsterdam last month, which was attended by industry leaders and real estate companies from around the world. B-Hive Living won the prestigious award, earning the coveted User and Community Experience Category.

“We are honoured to win this international accolade and be recognised for our community-building efforts. From the outset, our mission at B-Hive Living has been to build nourishing shared living environments that foster connection and elevate the lifestyle and wellness of our residents. We are constantly exploring and promoting the concept of living well and placing it at the heart of our co-living experience. Our business is built upon enhancing the lives of our people, being our residents, teams, or the broader communities we operate.”

The co-living sector has gained immense popularity in the UK due to its emphasis on community building and resident interaction, plus access to a variety of amenity spaces beyond the habitual scape.

B-Hive Living – who have already won the accolade of best community building company in the UK at the HMO Awards last year – has been at the forefront of this co-living movement through its mission to elevate the wellbeing of its residents through purpose-built spaces, personalised community building methodologies and tech-enhanced approaches for facilitating resident interaction and engagement.

“B-Hive Living is one of the most impressive residential co-living spaces I’ve come across in terms of CX. One of the things that stands out is their personal approach in everything they do. From their Hive Ambassador program to the founder personally cooking a welcome meal they prioritise creating a warm and inclusive environment. Their stringent vetting process is impressive and their commitment to curating a community of like-minded people shows up with their high retention and occupancy rates. You rarely see an independently owned co-living space with a Head of Experience which shows how much they value the user experience. Their B-Hive Living Awards are unique, and I love that they recognise and appreciate community members who go above and beyond. Their app ensures ease of use and seamless communication. Additionally, their OKR system designed to track engagement ensures that they stay focused on continuous improvement. The communal spaces are designed to encourage health and wellness. 73% of their members reported an increase in wellbeing from living there – a testament to the positive impact of their community.”
