Zoom Opens New 15,000 Square Foot Office in Holborn
16 August 2023
 

Video communications company Zoom has opened a new London Engagement Hub.

The 15,000 square-foot LEED-certified office will provide a place for Zoom’s 200+ UK employees to collaborate in-person on designated team days. Split into different zones, Zoom’s London Engagement Hub includes 75 bookable work points including library-style benches, touchdown spaces, agile tables for collaboration and traditional desks.

Zoom’s Virtual Kiosk manages the office’s front desk, allowing employees to remotely greet guests and handle administrative tasks.

In addition, an Executive Briefing Centre (EBC), set to open in early 2024, will provide a state-of-the-art demonstration space, offering a hands-on immersive education experience for employees, prospects, and customers.

“The world of modern work has changed. Both employers and employees have experienced the benefits of a more flexible approach to work and want to use technologies like Zoom to maintain them. This means more and more communication will take place across more channels, and collaboration across oceans.” says Phil Perry, Head of UK & Ireland at Zoom. 

“The organisations that best adapt to these changes and optimise the benefits of technology and flexible working, while maximising the times that teams spend face to face, will be those that succeed commercially in the race for the best talent. And it’s no different here at Zoom.”

“Today’s announcement also underlines our commitment to and confidence in the UK – a key market for Zoom where we continue to see strong adoption across our entire unified communications platform encompassing virtual meetings, telephony, internal communications, online events and more.”
