Did you know? The migration of flexible workspace to areas outside of major metropolitan cities could contribute more than $254 billion to local economies in the next decade.

In July 2019, Regus appointed Development Economics, a research and market analysis firm, to identify the socio-economic benefits for local economies of the development of flexible office space in secondary towns and cities and in suburban locations.

The study found that local economies are set to be boosted by the growing trend of people working from offices closer to where they live. It has also revealed the significant reduction in commuting time and associated carbon emission that can be expected should this trend continue over the next decade.
