Birmingham-based Work From Here has taken another step in its drive to change the world of remote working through a new partnership with the UK properties of international hotel chain Penta.

The online platform provides remote workers, freelancers, and anyone who wants to work differently, access a city-wide directory of venues providing collaborative working spaces.

Since it launched, Work From Here has opened up many of Birmingham’s favourite spaces, including Loki Wine, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and Birmingham City Football Club, to provide workspace opportunities for remote workers.

“Birmingham has led the charge for a complete culture change in how we work,” said Jo Seabright, founder of Work From Here.

“The idea for Work From Here was born out of the pandemic. I wanted to work somewhere different and be assured of expectations upfront, but nothing existed like this, so we set it up! Fast-forward and the need for Work From Here grows, and we’re delighted to be expanding the concept nationwide.”

Penta Hotels has six hotels in the UK and more than 20 across Europe.

Susana Balint, regional director sales UK, said: “We’re proud to be the first organisation to help Work From Here expand outside Birmingham. It’s really important to us that all our hotels reflect the neighbourhood and communities they are part of and this exciting partnership will allow us to build even more connections with the people that are local to us.

“It’s easy for people to book a workspace. You can pick bespoke packages tailored to each venue’s offering; for example, you can choose a package to include Wi-Fi, unlimited tea and coffee, and different tailored menu offerings.”
