Global Occupier Pivot To Hybrid Working Gathers Momentum
Work is no longer where you are, but what you do, for yet another of the world’s biggest office occupiers.
The deal will impact more than 300,000 employers as NTT radically rethinks its worldwide office network, the Financial Times reported.
The move comes soon after Standard Charted agreed a 12-month deal with IWG giving the bank’s 95,000 global workforce access to flexible workspace. Up to 3,500 office locations could be involved.
Other recent converts to hybrid working, which aims to bridge the home and traditional office by using serviced or flexible workspace, include BP, the energy giant, which told 25,000 staff they could work away from the office for two days a week; and HSBC, which expects to reduce their global office footprint by 40% as a result.
