  • The third edition of the Regus business tracker points to rising confidence amongst the global business community as the Optimism Index rises four points.

  • Global average optimism index 98
  • 8% global firms expect drop in profits
  • 9% globally expect to cut staff levels
  • The fact that companies are looking to hire new staff is seen as a significant indicator that the mind-set of organisations have shifted towards an investment in growth through human capital These findings are particularly significant coming in the wake of recent IMF and ILO observations that global unemployment has reached record proportions in the last three years.
  • The Regus solutions are adapted to all types of companies and workers, no matter where they are in the world, their size and activities. Regus is providing tailor-made workspace solutions to meet the needs of all its clients, made of both major international and national companies, but also small and medium companies (1 to 30 employees) from lawyers to accountants, consultants, recruiters, B2B service providers, legal, IT, pharmaceutical or financial industries. Every company can find an advantage in one of the Regus solutions to support their growth and development in the world, optimizing their premises costs and remaining focused on their core business.
  • It is no surprise that the workplace is changing. There is a total transformation of the workplace in play. There are many factors which are contributing to this. The aging baby boomers resulting in a smaller pool of applicants, new entries to the workplace are technologically more savvy a than ever and have different values, technology it self is changing faster each year, the global marketplace, M & A ’ s, etc. This creates quite a challenge when trying to guess the size and location of space that will work in a 5 to 10 year window.
  • We are in the throes of a working revolution that is changing the way organisations function, the way people live, and the way we relate to our environment. Increasingly, people aren’t going to work; work is coming to them. Whether they are SMBs or international corporations, all Regus’ clients benefit from many different advantages. In the first place, all the centres are located in the most strategic addresses in the world’s major capitals, business hubs and emerging markets. Thanks to these locations, companies benefit from both a business environment and a credible corporate image they need for their businesses. In a second place, Regus enables companies to minimize their second largest cost of doing business: the expenses associated with leasing, equipping and staffing their office space, representing between 5 and 10% of their turnover. At Regus, companies only pay for the space they occupy and the services they effectively use receiving only one single monthly invoice, simplifying administrative procedures. Using Regus solutions can help companies to save up to 30% of their expenses linked to their workspaces. And in a third place, companies can keep being productive while they are on the road or running their business in a new country, thanks to Regus operational and professional team support. Indeed, on-site, companies will enjoy the Regus teams help in their daily activities, enabling them to keep focusing on their core business and being efficient wherever they are.
  • With telecommunications and IT technology that have enabled many employees to work effectively and independently outside their companies’ offices, they are less and less working from a fixed office because of their regular moving from professional meetings to frequent business travels. With this growing presence of mobile workers, companies are more and more looking for flexible workplace solutions that enable them to reconcile the benefits of a mobile workforce with the costs of the workspace needed. It is in this changing world of work that flexible workspace solutions such as the ones offered by Regus are becoming the new way of working, replacing little by little the traditional permanent offices.
  • Thanks to its innovative workplace solutions, Regus is opening the gates of new markets in the world to companies that want to develop their business when, where and how they want to, limiting their expenses and minimizing the risks. With solutions based on flexibility and mobility, Regus is delivering a new way to work whether it is from home, on the road or from office. .
