Cybersecurity firm Immersive Labs unveils a ‘cool’ new HQ

The office includes a scooter track; game room; collaborative and private workspaces; a reception; an auditorium for staff meetings; a soundproof podcast room; and a wellness suite where staff can have midday yoga sessions.

Dieter Wood, Managing Director of Interaction, said: “We are really excited to deliver this fun new office space for Immersive Labs. The company wanted their new headquarters to be compelling, full of character and cool – in short, they wanted to attract the brightest minds. by providing the best employee experience.”
