Huddersfield-based luxury business centre, Empire House, has appointed a front of house manager in readiness for its January launch.
Martha Feeley-Isaksen has joined the company to provide an impeccable service to clients, encompassing reception facilities, bar management and events coordination.
Following a £150,000 renovation project, Empire House will boast one of the most luxurious business lounges in West Yorkshire, open to full-time tenants and members. With a bar and state-of-the-art conferencing facilities, it is a space aimed at business owners who want to provide the ultimate buying experience for respective customers.
A number of tenants have already moved in ahead of an official launch in early 2021, with just four offices remaining.
Founder of Empire House, Amy Byram, said there has also been huge interest in memberships. “The membership provides access to a beautiful space where people can really impress clients and work from day-to-day,” she said. “Initially, we weren’t sure how the pandemic would impact the business, because the way of working that we have been accustomed to is going through a transformation.
“But we have experienced a lot of interest, which I’d imagine is due to the effects of a challenging 2020 leading to a redefinition in the way businesses operate. Often, the foundation for business growth is largely based on perception. Companies recognise that the buying experience, therefore, needs to remain as enjoyable and effortless as possible – even if they are currently reducing the footprint of their operation.
“Social interaction is a core human need and the workplace plays a key role in learning and development, so whilst working from home will rise, there is still space for offices in the working landscape.”
