John Lewis Partnership looks to downsize headquarters
The John Lewis Partnership is looking to cut the size of its head office space by over 50% due to more staff working from home following the pandemic.
The owner of John Lewis and Waitrose announced last year that it will be moving its headquarters but has been waiting for the lease on its current 220,000 square foot site in London’s Victoria to run out.
According to The Times, the partnership is now seeking offices spanning 100,000 square feet due to fewer employees coming on site to work.
A John Lewis spokesman said: “We announced last year that we’re moving to a new London office that better suits our needs when our current lease expires next year.
“Like many businesses, we don’t need as much space now we have a blended approach to working.”
