Poland Workthere comes to Poland

Technology
Savills has launched a Polish version of its Workthere online platform to help potential tenants find flexible workspace and optimise how they use their space.

The platform was created in the UK in 2017 in response to the rapid growth of flexible workspace and serviced offices and now the platform has been rolled out globally with localised versions for Ireland, France, Spain, Germany, Holland, the US, Singapour, India, and Vietnam. Poland is the eleventh country to join this list. Tenant representation director Jarosław Pilch has been placed in charge of the project. He is to be supported by Workthere consultant Aleksandra Barlik and the platform is to list over 100 locations across the country.

On its launch date, it covers approximately 80 pct of the market and most of the largest flexible office providers in Poland. Workthere is not a listing website where you could buy a featured listing spot, but a professional and user-friendly property database, backed up by our advice. I have been following the flexible office space market in Poland for over 20 years, playing an active role in its growth, and I am delighted to be able to launch a tool that has been lacking in our market so far.
Jarosław Pilch
