Online accommodation finder Airbnb is growing its ‘For Work’ service by helping users find team-building experiences and homes that are suitable for business meetings.
The San Francisco-based company, which began in 2008, quickly became a favourite tool for millions of people looking for accommodation on holiday. And more recently, it has been targeting business travellers with Airbnb For Work.
Sitting under the ‘Experiences’ section of the platform, the team-building service will highlight learning and development experiences for professionals in more than 800 cities around the world, in categories such as wellness and social impact.
Airbnb for meetings will be part of the homes section, offering work-appropriate spaces where teams can meet and collaborate.
A statement on Airbnb’s website said: "Offering unique ways to travel for work will remain core to Airbnb for Work, but we estimate only 25% of employees within a company travel for work.
"With Airbnb for Work’s new expansion into team-building experiences, homes for offsites and meetings, and relocations, we now have an opportunity to bring the magic of Airbnb to the rest of the workforce."
