We tell you almost every day in Ergonoma, work habits are in upheaval. This is all because of the COVID pandemic and the lockdowns that followed. Remote working, literally working remotely using communication technologies, has gradually established itself as a new norm due to new health regulations.
Obviously new offers are multiplying. The most recent was born out of collaboration. Between the Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London and the high-end furniture company, the American Hermann Miller. To offer a package called ”Work from The Waldorf”. A bedroom coupled with a high-end workspace, decorated and furnished by the American brand. An offer dictated by all that we live and which became obvious. Explanations.
An offer dictated by a new reality
“Work from The Waldorf”, therefore, is access to high-end bedroom and workstations. Available for booking from December, the new offer was designed for business travelers forced to self-quarantine upon arrival in London. It is also addressed to professionals looking for an emblematic professional address. Developed in conjunction with the Kingsway Showroom, the new workstations offer high-end ergonomic design paired with a list of luxury amenities. Office furniture designed by experts to allow demanding professionals to maintain their level of productivity.
A very high-level workspace …
A very high-level workspace … The package is available for reservation at the hotel for a minimum period of seven days. For a price of around 2,250 euros per week. For a price clearly not accessible to all budgets, it gives access to:
- A room at the Waldorf Hilton
- A private, dedicated and interconnected office
- A Herman Miller workstation (including the Sayl chair, the Ollin monitor arm and an ergonomic sit / stand electronic adjustable desk)
- Full HD monitor, keyboard and mouse
- A hub for connecting the laptop to the ergonomic workstation and accessories, with an ergonomic stand
- A high-quality, studio-quality “blue” microphone for virtual meetings
- A flip chart and a complete stationary set to enable deep focus and mental mapping of the workspace
- Access to high-end WIFI
- Administrative assistance, especially for print scanning and mail
… With the services of a high-end hotel
In order not to make customers forget that they are at the Waldorf Hilton, the hotel has put the small dishes in the large restaurant level. A gourmet breakfast is delivered daily to your room. A 40 pound daily voucher for food and drink is given out every day. The entire Waldorf restaurant menu is available for delivery in the room. Finally, a Nespresso machine is available with unlimited capsules as well as a minibar (without alcoholic drinks, people being at their workplace).
To complete this luxurious panorama, note that a vinyl record player is also available in each room, with a music library. The newspapers are finally available in digital version.
The Waldorf Hilton and Herman Miller combined offer is clearly aimed at business travelers. With the current rather gloomy situation in the hotel industry, welcoming workers also represents a new outlet. Now all you have to do is work instead of looting the minibar or listening to the vinyl record collection.
