EY is moving to R+ on Blagrave Street which maintains the firm’s location in the heart of Reading and is in close proximity to key transport links. It will provide more areas for collaboration and tech enabled meeting rooms, along with a variety of workstations including desks, team areas and informal seating.
Last year, EY confirmed that it would be transitioning to a hybrid working model in the UK, enabling individuals to split their time between the office, client sites, or working from home. This builds on the firm’s long-standing culture of flexible working, which had been in place for many years prior to the pandemic.
EY has signed an initial five-year lease on the 25,000 sq ft of office accommodation, which is located over two floors, and expects to move in by Spring 2022. The new office will provide better connectivity and facilities for hybrid working, including interactive meeting rooms with enhanced video conferencing facilities. The office will benefit from webinar and webcast rooms, which will be used to host online and in person audience events for clients and EY people.
