One of the major trends in the future of work is that people become more flexible in their choice of work space. Also, already existing spaces become more multi purposed, with hotel lobbies, cafes, restaurants and offices becoming high quality coworking spaces. Seats2meet is happy to be an active advocate of the change of the future of work. Hence, many of S2M locations are the ones which were repurposed for that from their original goal. Today we want to focus on the companies which decided to add coworking to their already existing operations, which often brought amazing results and serendipity!
Asr – the largest insurance company in the Netherlands also has one of the largest offices in the country. The location was fully renovated a couple years ago.

Asr remains a popular destination for co-working – a year after it became a S2M location, more than 1000 social capital bookings were made!
