Tesco to trial in-store offices for remote workers
Image source, IWG. Remote working and your weekly shop in one? Both could be possible after Tesco announced a flexible working trial with office service provider IWG.From mid-May, people will be able to use office space created in the chain's New Malden store in London. A flexible office area will use space in-store, with desks, co-working areas and a meeting room provided. The move highlights the continued move away from traditional office set-ups since the pandemic. "People don't want to spend hours commuting every day and instead want to live and work in their local communities," said Mark Dixon, founder and chief executive of IWG.Research from the company suggests that 72% of workers would prefer to work flexibly. The pandemic and lockdowns also caused a huge shift in people's working patterns and while restrictions have eased, the latest figures suggest that the shift to flexible working is here to stay.
