Free Access: Workplace Wednesday: The Future of Work: How Hybrid Working Supports People, Profits, and the Planet

The last two-and-a-half years have created a significant opportunity for companies to reassess outdated working habits and bring in new long-term flexible strategies that are better for them, their employees, and the planet. What’s more, thanks to global flexplace provided by IWG brands including Regus and Spaces, and HQ, professionals have access to an unrivaled choice of locations to work, from both in Aiken and across the world.

Hybrid work enables workers to divide their time between a company HQ, home, and a local flexible workspace and is now the default way of operating for countless numbers of people. In fact, a recent IWG survey found that 72% of staff would prefer a hybrid way of working, even if going into a dedicated company office five days a week meant earning more money.

With a looming global recession, businesses looking to save costs can save up to $11,000 per year for every employee working in the hybrid model. Plus, giving employees more choice in where they work, boosts productivity, well-being, and staff retention. What’s more with hybrid, there is less time wasted on commuting – lowering a company’s carbon footprint.

As IWG Founder and CEO, Mark Dixon says: “Employees have realized that they have been wasting an hour or two commuting to an office that they don’t need to be in, while businesses have realized that a hybrid model means not only happier and more engaged employees, but also significant savings for the bottom line.”

Whether a company is a big multinational or a modest SME, IWG opens its first Regus in Aiken to cater to every different type of flexplace needs. Regus delivers high-spec traditional office environments, meeting rooms, coworking, and virtual offices.

The pioneering location that is bringing hybrid working to Aiken is Regus at 600 Trail Ridge Road, a convenient and pleasant location, close to Interstate 20 and with ample parking.

IWG helps more than eight million people work the hybrid way, in more than 3,500 locations worldwide and is focused on opening 500 more flex locations over the next 12 months in the U.S. alone.

Members have full access to IWG’s global network, encompassing additional unique brands, to give customers unparalleled choice in over 120 countries. What’s more, coworking desks, meeting rooms, and private offices can be booked for any number of hours, days, or months via the handy Regus or Spaces apps.

Hybrid working is opening a world of opportunity, as people and businesses across the globe recognize the benefits it brings to people, profits, and the planet. As Mark Dixon, Founder and CEO of IWG put it: “It gives us a future where companies can attract and retain the best talent, productivity, and profits can be boosted, carbon emissions will fall, and where people and communities will thrive as investment soars.”
