Are you pulling my Lego? There won't be a visit here but there will be a visit to Lego's London HQ as part of November's Workplace Week

Lego, Justgiving and Transferwise have confirmed their support of Workplace Week 2018 In Aid Of Children In Need - which will take place the week commencing November 12.

Marking its seventh consecutive year, Workplace Week London has seen more than 20 organisations, including 10 debutants, already confirming their support for a programme of workplace tours and fringe events across the Capital.

Lego has a  four storey office block housing more than 200 employees. From the funky pendant lights that swing like spaceships to the Lego skyline that replicates the panoramic views of the city, this workplace’s dash of novelty certainly adds to the employee experience - don't miss your chance to take a look around.

 

Justgiving

Go on, why not just vie in and go to Justgiving's current 30,000sq.ft campus-style base in Southwark where 70% of the furniture comes from reuse of existing furniture, - as do much of the interior structure and finishes. The design has also maximised the use of simple, raw materials to incorporate semi-built structures, huts and hideouts, creating a natural space with a modern, open feel to encourage collaboration and open discussion.

 

Show me the money

Global money transfer company Transferwise has also signed up for its Workplace Week debut. Its London headquarters scooped up the silver medal at last year’s London Design Awards and was named one of GlassDoor’s ‘Top 10 Coolest Offices’ in 2017. The quirky Shoreditch workspace is located in a former tea factory. With 200 employees from 30 different nationalities working within the space, the design aims to inspire energy, creativity and collaboration. In addition to a roof terrace, colourful hammocks and table tennis tables, there’s a padded sleep cell and a sauna – a nod to the Estonian heritage of the company's cofounders.

 

What else?

The week will offer a sneak peek into London’s most iconic buildings, including The Shard and the Blue Fin Building, and there will be the chance to tour the recently unveiled Huckletree West co-working space in White City for those seeking a ‘community for the curious’.
