Tesco In The U.K. Is To Rent Out In-Store Office Space Due To A Demand For Hybrid Workplaces

If you get snacky at work, this could either be a really good, or a really bad idea.

Tesco, Britain’s largest supermarket chain, is set to rent out their ‘excess space’, for hybrid working office space, due to the demand which boomed during the pandemic. 

Partnering with Swiss-based International Workplace Group (IWG), Tesco said they are to convert “excess space” at stores into “office space designed for hybrid working”. 

While the U.K is calling for employees to return to the office, working remotely during the pandemic became popular, with hybrid and flexible work patterns becoming the new norm.  

The group will open its first hybrid workspace at a Tesco Extra branch in New Malden, southwest London. 

With 30 co-working spaces including a meeting room, will be fitter with 12 open desks.  

“We are pleased to be working with IWG to offer customers the chance to work more flexibly,” added Louise Goodland, head of strategic partnerships at Tesco.
