What is the Best Space to Work in London program?
Using HqO’s proprietary Intelligence products, the Best Spaces to Work in London list is the only recognition and certification program that scores and validates end-user real estate experiences in spaces across the city. The competitive edge you need to meet your business goals and stand apart from your competition — being a certified Best Space has proven to help retain and attract employees and allow employers to see how their space stacks up against the best.
Accept your nomination by March 15th and an HqO REX expert will be in touch soon with next steps.
The competitive edge you need
Real estate leaders are competing for tenants amidst a once-in-a-generation confluence of threats including reduced demand, increased vacancy, and financial pressures. At the same time, employers are struggling with workplace attendance while justifying the cost of rent. Now more than ever, it is important to invest in technology that will give you the data you need to understand what your customers need.
London is full of innovative owners, operators, and occupiers who are winning in this new landscape by reactivating the city's workspaces and delivering exceptional end-user experiences in real estate. That’s why HqO is recognizing the Best Spaces to Work in London that are reinvigorating culture, community, and engagement in the workplace by aligning purpose, form, and function with their customers.
How it works
Published quarterly, the list is based on real estate experience data from tenants and their employees gathered through HqO’s proprietary Intelligence products leveraging the world’s most powerful and trusted employee experience assessment framework.
To participate in the programme, nominated spaces – buildings, offices, and amenities alike – undergo a REX Assessment to generate their REX Score, the quality measure of the end-user experiences within their space. Scores are then compared to data gathered over the last decade from over 8,000 workplaces and more than 1.7 million employees. If a REX Score meets or exceeds benchmarks from this data, the space will be certified and promoted as one of the Best Spaces to Work in London.
The programme is rolling, meaning data is continuously gathered, so REX Scores can always improve. For those who want to take it a step further, HqO will work with customers whose space did not meet benchmark criteria to help them create and implement a REX strategy that will be sure to increase their score.
