A behind-the-scenes look at how Olio has boosted culture and given its team over 1,000 spaces to connect via the Hubble Pass.

  • Olio has 100+ employees using the Hubble Pass to take a break from WFH and collaborate with the team
  • Olio has saved 95% using the Hubble Pass compared to the cost of having a full-time office for all its staff*
  • Olio has worked in 900+ workspaces across 16+ countries using the Hubble Pass, and counting

*This is based on Hubble data and the average cost of an office per person per month in London, UK.

Olio’s Journey to Remote-First Success with the Hubble Pass

“Olio loves Hubble because it means our team members can work their best wherever they are around the world.”

Thaisa Money — Director of People & Culture at Olio 

Keeping culture & collaboration alive in a remote-first setting

As a 100% remote business, community sharing app Olio values flexibility  — and it always has done.

Since its beginnings, Olio has recognised the importance of accommodating its team’s life commitments and personal priorities, and it has pushed hard to ensure that every team member can do their best work, wherever they are.

A remote-first workspace strategy isn’t without its challenges – particularly when it comes to culture, collaboration and giving employees options to work from spaces that aren’t their homes.

So, Olio set out to find a solution that would complement their remote-first ethos, giving their team a chance to get all-important face time, and the ability to work from anywhere. 

Olio’s journey to remote-first success with the Hubble Pass

Olio considered taking a full-time office but was reluctant to do so due to the cost implications and the fact that it’s not a global solution — one that removes the barriers around talent attraction and retention.

It wanted something that would enable its team members to work and meet together wherever they pleased. And this is where the Hubble Pass entered the story — the global solution it had been looking for.

How the Olio Team Uses Hubble

  • Team collaboration days
  • An alternative to homeworking
  • Client meetings
  • Working overseas

“Hubble allows us to come together to build our friendships and relationships at work, to brainstorm, and to have that space to connect.”

Lily Pearson — Strategic Partnerships Manager at Olio 

Olio is saving an estimated 95% on workspace with the Hubble Pass

With the Hubble Pass, Olio is saving an estimated 95% that it’d otherwise be spending if it had a full-time office for all of its staff, all whilst keeping its team happy and productive by giving them access to great spaces to work.

Not only this, but Olio is able to stay agile as well, scaling its Hubble Pass usage and spend up and down however and whenever it pleases, only paying for what it uses.

“Our founder didn’t want us to be paying 2 to 3 times someone’s salary for a London location”.

Thaisa Money — Director of People & Culture at Olio

Olio can work from anywhere without the cost and commitment of a permanent office

The Hubble Pass has proven to be an excellent solution for Olio, with thousands of locations ready and waiting to suit the needs of every team and every individual within it.

Through careful consideration and expert guidance for our dedicated workspace strategists, Olio is easily and cost-effectively creating a happy and productive global workforce without having to sacrifice the key elements that keep company culture and performance alive.
