Sunderland & Swansea site relocations announced
TSB has announced today its plans to relocate staff based in the Sunderland and Swansea sites to premises nearer to the city centres in 2022.
The business says the decision has been taken because the majority of staff are now working from home and will continue to do so, therefore, the sites have low occupancy.
The plan is to relocate the teams from Mowbray House to the newly renovated Regus building near Swansea City Centre and relocate the teams in Riverside House to upgraded facilities at Sunderland branch and St Mary’s Place branch in Newcastle.
The announcement may be welcome news for those working from home who have been asking for confirmation that this will be made their permanent model of working. The business has invested money and support in enabling partners to work remotely during the pandemic and this has become the preferred way of working for most staff.
However, the decision will impact most those who choose or need to work from an office. We are talking to TSB about travel and parking, disabled parking and facilities, shift patterns and security.
The next step will be for impacted staff to have one to one meetings with their line managers to discuss their preferences and any concerns they may have.
