has unveiled its new coworking concept at around 270 locations in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany and Poland. The new concept offers customers a place to work away from their corporate or home office complete with comfortable seating, Wi-Fi, refreshments as well as access to quiet areas and a variety of business services. The coworking trend is booming in the Nordics as the need for permanent offices is decreasing in line with digital development. Not only that, but both larger and smaller businesses are also looking for increased flexibility for their teams and operations, whether it’s remote or on-site.
"People are looking for more modern working solutions and we’re seeing a growing demand for workspaces closer to home or on the go from guests and corporate clients. With our 270 hotels in six markets, we can offer flexible, inspiring and cost-saving workspaces, regardless of where you’re based," said Jens Mathiesen, President & CEO at Scandic Hotels."Guests have been working from our hotel lobbies for many years and have appreciated the dynamic and creative environment that Scandic has to offer. Now we’re taking the next step by enabling access to a workspace in our hotels including more quiet areas and meeting rooms by the hour, as well as coffee and refreshments."
All Scandic hotels adhere to the Stay Safe at Scandic program which ensures a safe visit for everyone. It includes helping guests keep social distance through clear markings in the hotels’ shared spaces, providing hand disinfectant, promoting good hand hygiene, increased cleaning procedures, constantly disinfecting public surfaces and reducing seating in lobbies and restaurants.
