Secondesk launched

Many employees need additional workspaces for their business trips, meeting up with their customers, brainstorming with their teams or simply a change of scenery.

Secondesk, Gecina’s third-place network, is positioned as the “second office” for these employees, starting off with those working in Gecina buildings. With the workafé and creative room, these are inspiring places to work, innovate and meet up.

Offering a range of services, Secondesk illustrates Gecina’s test-and-learn innovation policy and represents a first step towards further enhancing its offering.



The deep changes in the way we live, consume, enjoy leisure activities and work are being facilitated by the digital revolution. Which is transforming the way workspaces are used…

  • For the employees of Gecina’s current or future business customers, Secondesk offers complementary workspaces to supplement their “first” desk



With Secondesk, Gecina is developing an offer designed specifically for people working in the Greater Paris region who are more and more inclined to travel outside of their company within an increasingly interconnected region.
