The decrease in revenues and the transition to a remote work force publishers to abandon the large office. So, “Komsomolskaya Pravda” (KP) will move to the office two times smaller, and most of its employees will continue to work from home. Partial translation of the editorial boards of the constant remote work and consider other publishers, including “Argumenty I Fakty” (AIF) and “Vedomosti”.The publishing house (ID) “Komsomolskaya Pravda” under the contract with the landlord for eight months needs to leave the building business center “Vympel” in the Old Petrovsko-Razumovsky proezd Moscow, where it takes 6 thousand square meters, told “Kommersant” the General Director of “KP” Vladimir Sungorkin. “KP” is looking for a new office area to 3 thousand square meters, he said. According to Mr. Sungorkin, ID go to a new format, in which the majority of employees will work remotely.”We give up the most personal jobs in favor of coworking and reading rooms, where journalists can work and communicate,” said Vladimir Sungorkin. According to him, now in the Moscow office ID employs 550 people, including employees of the newspaper, website, radio and publishing divisions. After moving in the office will simultaneously be present not more than 200 people, mostly from radio and service.Business centre “Vympel” belongs to the structures of the group “Safmar” Mikhail Gutseriev. Director of Department of office real estate at Colliers International Natalia Bonneli estimates lease rates in the “Pennant” of 12-15 thousand rbl. for 1 sq. m, but “KP” as anchor tenant could avail of discounts.According the revenue of OOO “publishing house “Komsomolskaya Pravda”” in 2018 amounted to 3 billion rubles, net loss — RUB 361 million in 2019 no. For the first half of 2020 revenue due to the pandemic fell by around 15%, says Vladimir Sungorkin. Advertising revenues, he said, nearly recovered from its seasonal summer drop, but retail sales yet. “KP” has already cut the salaries of highly paid employees by about 15%. “This level will hold until September, after which I hope to return the salary”,— said Mr. Sungorkin.About remote work thinking not only in “KP”. “Open media” reported that at a constant remote work from September enters RBC, occupying an office on Union street. RBC CEO Nikolay Molibog said “Kommersant” that will work remotely 80% of the 1.3 thousand employees of the group, and television — “hybrid mode”: a part of the staff in the Studio, part — remotely. “Since October, plan to lift 33% of the area, transforming workspaces. The system of desking, offices will be negotiation and co-working,”— said a top Manager, noting that it was “not the economy, and the new reality”.The press service of the publishingLa the newspaper “Vedomosti” company “Business news Media”, “b” also stated that “exploring the possibility” of switching to a permanent remote work. Considering this and the ID, “AMF”, said its General Director Ruslan Novikov. According to him, the EID could cancel the lease, for example, two of the four entrances to the estate of the family Baryshnikova, where it occupies 5 thousand square meters, or move to a new building, but the decision is not accepted: “We won’t abandon offline full: meetings meetings will, just, as it turned out, they can be carried out much less frequently than before, complementing online and formats without losing effectiveness.”In “b” most of the staff continues to work remotely. But, said the head of publishing house “Kommersant” Vladimir Zhelonkin, this is due to “the current epidemiological situation”. In the future, he said, some employees and departments may be able to work remotely or in the office. The direct problem of the reduction of the is also not necessary, rather it is about creating spaces that are easily transformable to the changing situation. A similar position is held by Bauer Media Group. “We have the opportunity to go on udalenku, but after removal of restrictive measures, on the contrary, returned the part of the staff in the office. In General you do not want to do drastic steps need to compare the results in different formats, based on the performance indicators, and not from motives of economy on the rent,”— says CEO of the group in Russia Alexey Ivanov.Against the background of a pandemic, companies in many industries decided to leave the part of employees to work remotely to optimize costs (see p. 2 and “b” from July 2). This has already led to a significant increase in sublease — to withdraw from the contract with the owners of the business centers without penalties difficult tenants retake the square. Colliers International notes the increase in the demand for co-working spaces that allow you to rent space on more flexible terms and short time.Valery Lebedev, Elizaveta Makarova, Anna Afanasyeva
