BT opened a new London Head Office, known as One Braham in November 2021, housing around 3,500 employees.
We were delighted to see this photo and testimonial on LinkedIn from Nuzhah Miah, who had occasion to visit the building recently. She took the photo below and had this to say about her experience:
"The office has very impressive amenities, but I was pleasantly surprised with the prayer space in particular.
In my experience female prayer spaces have often felt like an afterthought. However at One Braham I was able to comfortably remove my hijab and perform ablution to prepare for prayer. This is something that I have to anticipate not being able to do before I leave the house, because sometimes Muslim prayer spaces don't accommodate for women who wear hijab.
It meant a lot to me to be able to comfortably pray as I was able to return to my desk reenergised and refocused which is one of the great benefits of the five daily prayers Muslims observe and therefore helped me feel so much more motivated.
This for me is a great example of inclusivity and I hope that these facilities become a standard in all offices, especially by companies that are looking to attract female Muslim talent."Nuzhah Miah
We are very pleased to see that our appliances are being used and appreciated by the Muslim community.
