Blue Bell-based Unisys has decided to adopt some of its pandemic-era practices going forward, writes Kennedy Rose for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The company executives plan to keep its real estate footprint reduced by 27 percent and implement hoteling at its remaining office space as well as expand its hiring to gig workers.
Before the pandemic, Unisys leased three floors at its Blue Bell headquarters but has since consolidated its operations to two floors. It has made similar cuts to its global real estate footprint, cutting it by roughly a third.
Going forward, the company will be working using a hoteling scenario at its headquarters. Assigned seating will be removed and employees will be able to reserve space on an as-needed basis.
“We’re not going to be real-estate-free by any means, but we are going to smartly use real estate to do the things that require it to be there,” said COO Eric Hutto.
Unisys will also expand its hiring to freelancers and gig workers, something it had already been doing during the pandemic to great success.
