Working from home has become the norm for all too many people this year, as has all too sparsely populated hospitality venues. Now home workers looking for alternative workplaces, and hospitality venues looking for added custom are coming together to solve their mutual dilemma.
Across the UK hospitality venues from global hotel chains to independent cafes are welcoming home workers to an alternative to their temporary home office, and popularity is growing.
Accor has more than 200 hotels in the UK now offering ‘pop-up’ workplaces, with Hilton not far behind on circa 160. Hotels have always been a meeting place option for business people, but are now adjusting to facilitate home workers with specific facilities and options for them. The privacy of their own room, or more social slots in bars and other spaces sharing socially distanced space with others doing the same thing.
It’s not just big hotel groups, independent restaurants, pubs and cafes are all joining the community of hospitality welcoming home workers.
For many hospitality businesses of all types and sizes providing a temporary workplace for guests is part of what they already do. The opportunity perhaps is in attracting more home workers by letting local people they are welcome. Welcome to come and work where food and drink a plenty awaits them, served with warm hospitality.
