Currys to vacate HQ in switch to flexible working for office staff

As part of its new model Currys will provide its 1,400 corporate workforce with WeWork All Access passes, enabling them to visit over 50 UK WeWork locations.


The Sunday Times reported Currys will vacate its head office in Acton as part of the move to flexible working.


Additionally, to support regional hubs, Currys will also be refurbishing a number of spaces in its own stores across the UK, giving colleagues even more flexibility about where they work.


Alex Baldock, chief executive of Currys said: “We are not just paying lip service to hybrid working as we come out of the pandemic. We have listened to our colleagues, who have been outstanding through Covid’s many challenges, and have implemented the changes they wanted to see.


“Our workspace of the future embraces what genuine hybrid working means, not just where you work, but how you work. We want to bring our people together again, but in a way that works for them. We are really excited to unlock the potential of truly hybrid working and believe that being innovative today will prepare us for how we adapt to new ways of working in the future.”


Samit Chopra, president and chief operating officer international at WeWork, added: “As more and more companies welcome people back to the office, many are embracing hybrid work schedules that empower people with flexibility to provide new opportunities for teams to collaborate in-person. We continue to see growing demand from forward-thinking companies like Currys, and we are delighted to bring their new hybrid working model to life for their teams.”
