Check Point Software Opens New London City Office
The London Wall facilities are in a more accessible location close to the new Queen Elizabeth Line and have more meeting and demo spaces for colleagues, channel partners and customers.
Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, a provider of cyber security solutions, has relocated to new offices in the City of London after the pandemic.
People are no longer required to come in every day but the new 85 London Wall office, close to the recently opened Queen Elizabeth Line, affords easy access and a range of collaborative workspaces where people can engage face-to-face with colleagues, partners and customers.
With the global shift to hybrid-working following the pandemic, the Check Point team began to rethink the role of a central London office, bringing in a team of designers. “People enjoy the flexibility of working from home but they still want a central hub to meet in-person. With the new office design, we are embracing an integrated work model with common areas, quiet rooms and recreational spaces, that will also support our rapidly growing UK business,” said Adam Bradley, Regional Director, UK&I at Check Point.
Following a record year for sales and headcount growth in the UK, Check Point sees the new facility as key to attracting the best talent in a competitive jobs market in the cybersecurity sector.
Bradley continued: “We needed an office environment that people will actually enjoy coming to. It’s no longer enough to just provide desks for employees, we wanted a vibrant, energising workspace that encourages creativity and collaboration. The new ‘home from home’ style throughout the office helps with this and is also better suited to a modern, hybrid way of working.”
Check Point Software Technologies was recognised as the Best Cyber Security Employer in the Forbes World’s Best Employers 2021 list. The new London office adds to the company’s existing employee wellbeing scheme, which includes subsidised lunches, gym memberships and funded travel to work.
