It is no surprise that we all got comfortable working from home over the past few years. Organizations are rethinking workspaces, and flexible working arrangements are quickly becoming the fastest growing priority among job candidates. If you’re searching for a way to keep up with the competition and attract top partnership talent, we’ve got you covered.

Our very own Tai Rattigan came to LinkedIn this week to share a new partnership that focuses on bettering the hybrid workplace experience.

With thousands of Deel users working from a WeWork space daily, a partnership was a no-brainer. The two companies have teamed up to create Deel Workplaces, an easy way for companies to provide flexible working environments for their team members all across the world, whenever they need it. All it takes is a few clicks, Deel clients are able to request a WeWork membership for their new hires and they’ll be able to attend a co-working space near them. It’s THAT simple. 

Convenience is Key

Time is money – and our time is extra limited with the holidays creeping up. People are willing to pay for convenience, and this partnership highlights just that. 

Last month two travel giants teamed up to prioritize a seamless travel experience for their users. Uber Travel, the new door-to-door travel product from Uber partnered with National Express to introduce coach and rail transportation available for booking directly on the Uber app. This means people across the UK can book coach journeys and keep track of all of their domestic travel bookings without jumping apps.

Start Taking Notes: This Week’s Partnerships

Let’s take a step out of the partnership world and into your childhood for a minute. Attraction World Group announced a partnership with DerbySoft last week that will make your Walt Disney World experience even better. The pairing will work together on Disney’s next generation connectivity distribution platform to provide services for theme park tickets, resort rooms and packages. The ultimate goal is to make visitors’ time at the happiest place on earth easier. 

 new partnership involving AI technology? Tell me more. Klaviyo and Klevu are working hand-in-hand to further help brands in building powerful and personal online experiences. 

With the Klevu integration in Klaviyo, ecommerce businesses will be able to use search data in brand new ways including sending personalized emails and SMS messages featuring products recommended by Klevu AI thanks to their search history. Congrats Klaviyo team!

Finch and BambooHR announced an innovative collaboration that will allow employers a streamlined process for sharing their data with third-party applications.

Ionia and Certegy announced a partnership last week that will launch the largest U.S. Buy Now, Pay Later merchant network. The goal is to give merchants the capability to offer their customers a stress and interest free financing experience – not to mention, it’s a safe option.

A little startup success to end your week – Tellius raised a whopping $16M in funding to fuel its growth. The company has plans to build up an ecosystem for analytics through new integrations and develop industry-specific applications in order to speed up time and the raised capital will give them the opportunity to do just that.
