Tui consolidates three locations into revamped ‘campus’ headquarters

A total of 2,800 employees from eight Tui Group companies will work from a newly revamped corporate headquarters in Hanover.

The building has been rebuilt over the past two years to create the Tui Campus.

Previously, eight TUI companies represented at the Tui Campus were spread across three different locations in the German city.

There are 1,500 fully equipped desks for 2,800 staff, in addition to 250 workplaces in 13 ‘co-areas” after offices were designed and converted.  

Tui said: “Here, employees can come together spontaneously to work on projects or exchange ideas,” the company said. “In addition, 80 meeting rooms are available – and 1,500 regular desks.

“Instead of small offices and narrow corridors, the Tui Campus is characterised by open working environments.”

The company added: “Internal calculations and empirical data have been incorporated into the work concept to ensure that all employees find a place to work at the Tui Campus.” 

Workers can use an app to book their workplace in advance.

With a nod to sustainability, a ‘photovoltaic system’ is currently being installed on the roof of the office building as well as on a multi-storey car park. 

It will cover an area of 7,350 square metres and have a maximum output of 1.6 megawatts, equivalent to the annual consumption of around 375 three-person households. 

Work is taking place for 40 e-charging points to meet growing demand. 

“When installing electrical appliances, attention was paid to energy efficiency. Much of the furniture will be re-used instead of newly purchased,” Tui said.

A TV studio for worldwide employee communication has been set up and a travel agency moved in from a separate location.

Group chief executive Sebastian Ebel said: “The Tui Campus reflects what defines our working culture: flexibility and openness. 

“We are proud of our flexible working models and hybrid forms of work. They work best in combination with modern offices, as we have now implemented at the Tui Campus. 

“Working from home or around the world and working in the office are the two sides of the same coin. 

“The Tui Campus brings the Tui brand to life. Not only for our employees, but also for guests from all over the world. They are the ones who make the Tui Campus a place of communication and dialogue.”
