• OfficeTeam launches new homeworker subscription model

        • With a recent Institute of Directors survey finding that 74 per cent of businesses will maintain permanent homeworking policies after the pandemic, workplace solutions supplier OfficeTeam, has launched a new subscription service to deliver monthly items directly to staff members’ doors. 

          The model, based on the classic subscription offerings in the retail industry, aims to give the total cost of ownership to businesses at a time when the move to remote working has caused budgets to spiral out of control. 

          Instead of employees placing an order for workplace supplies directly and claiming back via expense forms — costing on average £27.40 to the business to process each claim — staff will receive a pre-approved delivery each month which, based on their requirements, contains everything they need to carry out their role.

          This full visibility of costs to businesses will prevent spend leakage, an issue reported by 90 per cent of OfficeTeam customers. And the service will save businesses vast amounts of time as only one consolidated invoice will need to be processed.  

          The new solution also aims to reduce OfficeTeam’s carbon footprint as part of its ongoing CSR strategy – resulting in more items per consignment and fewer deliveries, thus benefitting customers’ carbon agenda too.   

          Andrew Jones, newly appointed CEO at OT Group Ltd, of which OfficeTeam is a subsidiary said, “We constantly listen to feedback from our customers and the wider industry, and try to find ways to help solve their problems through service innovation. It has been clear to us for many months that out-of-control supply costs caused by homeworking has resulted in an expensive headache for many businesses.

          “This subscription model will not only make employees’ lives easier in the day-to-day, ensuring that they have everything they need to fulfil their role, but will also create efficiencies of scale for organisations who are now inundated with expense forms as staff purchase their own, non-approved, workplace items.

          “Our agile response to industry demand and meeting the needs of the new world of work is central to OfficeTeam’s proposition of continually helping customers do business smarter.”

          Three levels of subscriptions are available, including essential supplies, a print service, and an executive pack containing everything needed to fully fit-out the home office, complete with furniture and technology.
