The FINANCIAL — EY on December 14 officially opens its new global headquarters at 6 More London Place, London SE1. With 225,000 people across 150 countries around the world, EY’s global headquarters is home to 800 people that form part of the professional services organization’s Global Executive.
The new office is part of EY’s global “Workplace of the Future” transformation, which provides modern office space supported by the latest technology, design and environmental standards.
Mark Weinberger, EY’s Global Chairman and CEO, says:
“There is a great sense of energy and creativity in our new global headquarters. The open space environment and leading-edge technology is making a big difference to how our people work together – it’s a really exciting place to be.”
Workplace of the Future locations are designed around how people work, not where they sit, and provide a variety of spaces designed for activity-based working, with people choosing which space to use based on the work they are doing that day. Fifty-seven Workplace of the Future locations are now complete around the globe, and 53,000 EY people will be working in such offices by the end of June 2016, according to EY.
Nancy Altobello, EY Global Vice Chair, Talent, says: “EY’s Workplace of the Future offices provide energizing and efficient work spaces that, together with our flexible and high- performance teaming approaches, enable us to attract and retain talent. All of this is critical to helping us achieve our Vision 2020 goals and to help ensure that we’re working together to achieve our purpose to build a better working world.”
The opening of 6 More London Place is the latest phase of the transition to Workplace of the Future in EY’s London estate. As well as the new global headquarters in London, EY’s UK&I organization has an office at 1 More London Place (6,000 people) and the headquarters of EY’s EMEIA Financial Services operation is at 25 Churchill Place (3,500 people), which adopted new premises and a Workplace of the Future space in July 2015.
Prior to this move, EY’s global headquarters were at Becket House, 1 Lambeth Palace Road, London for the previous 10 years. EY occupies four floors and approximately 56,500 square feet in 6 More London Place, part of the More London development owned by St Martins.
