New York, New York -
Upflex, a New York-based provider of global hybrid workspace solutions, today announces a strategic partnership with Velocity Global, a provider of talent solutions that help thousands of brands easily engage, manage, and pay global talent. Through the partnership, Velocity Global will connect supported employees with access to on-demand flexible workspace around the world. As part of Velocity Global’s mission to help build teams anywhere, they will leverage Upflex’s global space network and advanced booking technology to make more than 10,000 safe, connected workspace locations available to distributed teams, including bookable desks, meeting rooms and private offices, in 135 countries.
“Velocity Global is embracing change and building a future-forward strategy for flexible work, and we're honored to be a partner to them in that transformation,” said Upflex Founder and CEO Christophe Garnier. “Our goal is to empower forward-thinking companies and their people to discover, manage, and optimize workspaces that meet their changing business needs, and it's exciting to see that mission in action with an industry leader like Velocity Global.”
Velocity Global's Global Work Platform™ helps clients engage talent, quickly and easily onboard and pay employees, and ensure compliance. The rollout of Upflex to Velocity Global supported employees began in April 2022 and currently reaches 2,000 employees, or around 100 companies. The program continues to grow and will soon be rolled out to 6,000 employees.
“Hiring and retaining the best talent demands flexibility,” said Velocity Global VP of Strategic Partnerships Colin McDonagh. "The modern workplace presents the challenge of providing employees the option to work remotely in addition to having the ability to collaborate in-person. That’s why we are excited to partner with Upflex. Their mission to build better workspaces for distributed teams aligns with our focus of simplifying work anywhere — enabling forward-thinking companies to get the best of both worlds.”
In the global shift to flexible work, Upflex allows supported employees to manage teams’ workspace usage through solutions like Upflex’s On Demand, which helps companies cut costs by allowing them to only pay for the space they use and to scale and adapt their workspace strategy as needs change.
This collaboration with Velocity Global showcases innovative approaches to modern work, allowing Velocity Global’s client companies to leverage data, cut costs, compete for talent, and change with the times.
