This week we announced our partnership with leading hybrid workplace software platform, Kadence, together we will revolutionize flexible work and redefine work as we know it. This partnership provides employees with access to a global network of flexible workspaces and their internal offices, seamlessly, in one platform.
Our CEO & Founder, Mark Gilbreath, said: “The future of work is hybrid, but for individual employees, it takes many forms. Working near home on days when home just doesn’t work. Huddling with colleagues to ideate and get sh*t done. Traveling to HQ to bond, celebrate wins, and the company mission. We are thrilled to partner with Kadence to extend and enhance the hybrid experience for their customers, by giving their employees access to thousands of great spaces around the globe.”
Kadence is a full suite of easy-to-use hybrid working software designed to improve the coordination of people, space and time to help your teams work smarter. They’re building the next-generation operating system for hybrid working, designed to unleash the potential of people, powering a more positive way of working.
Kadence helps global companies foster collaboration, flexibility, and in-person support. It provides cost savings for companies looking to cut back on their own office space, as well as the opportunity for employees to be productive when they need, and with whom they need, in the spaces they need all within one single place.
What this means for you and your team
With the LiquidSpace x Kadence integration, companies and their employees will be able to:
- Instantly book on-demand desks, meeting rooms and offices at coworking spaces and flexible office providers around the world
- Deepen engagement by enabling teams to coordinate and meet up in person, at the office, or in coworking spaces
- Reduce cost per employee by optimizing the mix of traditional and on-demand real estate spend
LiquidSpace gives companies the power to unlock a global ecosystem of on-demand spaces without losing control. Employees enjoy the freedom to work from where it works, whether that’s a quiet space to concentrate near home, or a convenient space to gather and collaborate with colleagues. With supply partners across the globe, including large brands and smaller independent spaces across central business districts and closer to home. Enterprise workplace and HR leaders can tap real-time data insights to inform workplace strategy, set budgets and configure permissions.
Kadence’s smart hybrid solution is designed to help companies slash real-estate costs with flexible desk and conference room booking software. The platform also keeps you in the loop with office traffic and notifies teammates of schedule changes.
This partnership offers a comprehensive solution for ‘officeless’ companies seeking a high level of agility to coordinate employee schedules while accessing thousands of flexible spaces, empowering teams with true flexibility to work together anytime, anywhere. In addition, companies that already have their own offices can now offer their employees access to thousands of office locations beyond their own four walls.
Jeff Gwinnett, Senior Director, Workplace Experience & Sustainability, Softchoice, said: “The future of work is one where people have the agency to choose where and how they work so they can be the most productive in what they deliver. This means work can happen anywhere, and with the right people. The challenge then comes down to coordination - the coordination of schedules, spaces and experiences.
“This partnership will be an absolute game changer to empower our teams with the autonomy and flexibility to choose how, when and where they work to be their most successful; as well as provide our business with a unified experience across our leased and flex portfolio.“
Employees can now effortlessly search, find, and book on-demand spaces wherever they are. Additionally, they can view their team's activities, star their go-to colleagues for regular meetups to follow their weekly schedules, and receive notifications when they've booked a space - whether in the office or at a coworking space.
“In the past people were predictable, and spaces were static. Now, spaces are flexible, and people are unpredictable. That’s why we created the hybrid operating system that helps people be intentional with how they get their work done, and navigate all the complexities of hybrid,” said Dan Bladen, CEO & Co-Founder, Kadence.
The integration will be launching in Q3 2023; we'll update you when it's live. Want to know more about how to take advantage of this partnership? Get in touch.
