How does UP contribute to the perfect day at the office for you?

Creating cool solutions for our clients! Next to that, we’ve got a special relationship with this building being renters of the first hour. Its fantastic location and perfect accessibility with public transport contribute to my perfect workday. As a company we are reasonably self-supporting, but the downstairs coffee provides the icing on the cake.

Which one of UP’s facilities is indispensable for you?

The people from Office Operators working at the reception desk are ever so friendly and brighten up my day from the moment I walk in. Their support is quite diverse and ranges from welcoming our clients to nice chitchats and even thoughtful gifts.

What’s your favourite spot in the building for meeting your fellow UP renters?

The restaurant on the 17th floor! It features the most spectacular views. For me, it all comes down to the experience. It’s the same with my clients: I want to offer them the whole package. That’s what distinguishes us from our competition. A 360 view just like the one on the 17th floor.

When you are not working, where do you go to blow off some steam?

Before corona, UP organised a fun get-together on Thursdays once a month. Something like playing bingo or singing karaoke. Unfortunately, that’s not possible now. But when it’s allowed, I still love to go to the office. I work so much more efficient there than from home. Fridays we always close off the week by having some fun casual drinks.

Where do you like to meet with clients within the UP building?

My clients enjoy a warm welcome from the people at the reception desk. We often have a coffee first at the bar downstairs and then move the meeting up to a conference room. The conference rooms all come with the needed amenities and have great views to top it off.
