SEATTLE — While many workplaces sit empty as employees continue to work remotely, Expedia Group is using its empty campus for good.
When flights and vacations grounded to a halt during the coronavirus pandemic, so did normal business operations at Expedia Group’s newly-finished headquarters in Seattle’s Interbay neighborhood.
“This marketplace had only opened up a couple weeks before the shutdown,” said Katherine Cheng, head of global and community impact for Expedia Group.
The company’s commercial kitchen was designed to feed Expedia employees, but the large space sat empty when workers went remote. That’s when the Expedia Group and a handful of corporate sponsors came up with a plan to put the space to good use.
