The Very Group unveils refurbished headquarters
The Very Group has refurbished its Liverpool headquarters in preparation for a new permanent hybrid working model.
The owner of Very.co.uk and Littlewoods.com said the renovations carried out by Greenmount Projects have aimed to create the optimum team working space for when the group’s 2,100 staff members begin to split their time between home and office working later this year.
At Skyways House, the group has introduced an open plan environment with hot desks and bespoke break-out and collaboration spaces. Meanwhile, a second office called The Hub has been transformed into a flexible contact centre with collaborative zones, hot desks, quiet pods, training rooms and break out spaces of different sizes and specifications.
The offices also feature accessible kitchen spaces and gender neutral facilities.
The refurbishment has also been replicated at the group’s Bolton customer care centre where there is a conference centre, juice bar, relaxation zone and a staff gym.
Sarah Willett, chief people officer at The Very Group, said: “Remote working during Covid-19 has seen our people operate with even greater ingenuity at a time when we’re attracting record numbers of new customers. Our colleagues have told us they like the greater flexibility that comes with working from home and when the UK starts re-opening, we’ll make some permanent changes to the way we work.
“Our new spaces will be about high energy, high impact creativity and collaboration, all with a focus on improving the experience for our colleagues and our 4.5 million customers. We’ll also continue investing in our technology and systems to make sure our people have the best tools for the job.”
