easyJet is Europe’s leading airline offering a unique and winning combination of the best route network connecting Europe's primary airports, with great value fares and friendly service. For much of its 26-years, the airline’s Luton headquarters have been a hive of activity, with around 1,500 employees spending much of their week working in the Luton Campus head office.
With a rapidly expanding workforce and a growing number of offices, it was becoming increasingly difficult for EasyJet to manage their office spaces effectively. They were exploring whether they could adopt smarter working practices and make more effective use of their office environment to encourage greater collaboration. Enabling greater flexibility of work was key.
The airline identified managed desk-booking as a key component in bringing employees back on site safely after the COVID-19 pandemic and looked for a solution that would allow employees to request a flexible desk space, while enabling its dedicated biosecurity team to re-define safety standards.
After assessing various options, easyJet decided to work with RICOH Spaces
to deliver the right solution for its people. Thanks to our workplace management platform, easyJet improved the overall productivity of the team by increasing collaboration and reduced real estate costs.
Ricoh were hugely valuable during the deployment, especially their lead developers. The project had unique requirements that made the process demanding, but Ricoh were always available to offer support. They even went the extra mile to take calls whenever required, to ensure we maintained momentum"
