Currys introduces new hybrid working model

Currys has launched a new hybrid working model for all corporate and commercial employees in the UK.

The move has involved the retailer teaming up with flexible workplace provider WeWork in issuing 1,000 employees with WeWork All Access passes to enable them to work in over 50 UK WeWork locations. This means it will be closing its London head office. 

In addition, Currys will be refurbishing a number of spaces in its own stores across the UK to give regional staff members more flexibility on where they work.  

Currys said it took a consultative approach prior to the move as it looks to shift to a more creative and agile workplace strategy following the Covid-19 pandemic. The retailer said staff will be able to shape their own work schedules based on their location, workflow and what suits them best on a particular day.

Alex Baldock, group 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. 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.”
