NORTHGATE Vehicle Hire has moved into new, carbon-neutral offices in Reading, in-line with its sustainable ethos and as part of its Drive to Zero decarbonisation programme.
As a shared use office between Northgate Vehicle Hire and the wider Redde Northgate group, the new UK southern hub will provide a hot-desking environment for its 50 southern based commercial employees, a large meeting room, and 80-acres of green space to explore.
Set within the Thames Valley Park campus, Northgate’s new offices are fully carbon-neutral, as well as providing visitors and employees access to EV charging facilities, and easy transport links to Reading railway station.
Hannah Jacobs, Business Support Manager for Northgate said: “These new offices are an important step towards our sustainability goals as a business. They adhere to our new hybrid working environment for our team which is not just beneficial for the environment, but employee’s mental health as well.”
Further supporting Northgate’s drive for employee wellbeing, staff will have access to the purpose built ‘Fleet Room’ which will host team building activities with a focus on wellness, as well as the on-site gym, outdoor cinema and working space.
“Since we opened these new offices, the feedback from our team has been universally positive. The sales teams have appreciated having face-to-face meetings again with the business support staff as well as inviting customers in to see us again. With desk booking now running at near full capacity, we are pleased that Northgate employees are keen to come in and interact with colleagues rather than work remotely. This move has proved popular with the entire workforce,” added Jacobs.
