Accor has announced that it will start offering workspaces for £35 a day. The cost includes added perks of room service and a bar below. The new service, called Hotel Office, will offer isolated spaces and access to the hotel’s facilities. The move is a response to the expected increase in work from anywhere arrangements.
Speaking about the company’s decision, Karelle Lamouche, chief commercial officer, Accor Europe, said:
“Workers are looking for alternatives to home working and many aren’t ready to or can’t return to offices. Hotel Office is a safe and flexible ‘working from anywhere’ solution to meet spontaneous needs as well as planned working. Hotel Office also responds to the needs of employers needing to tackle productivity drops whilst answering their duty of care to their staff to meet their physical and mental work pressures. As such many employers need a cost-effective, contract-free workspace solution for their staff which provides a reduced commute, flexibility and productivity in safe, clean private work spaces.”
