The flexible office space market in the United States has been reduced during the coronavirus pandemic, with 144 suppliers reducing their footprint by 12.2 million square feet – mainly in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Manhattan. But larger providers like IWG have expanded over the past year as businesses needed a new, flexible space.

Research commissioned by IWG shows that 70% of job applicants insist on hybrid work policies, and half of existing employees would quit their jobs if forced back into the office five days a week. In addition, research from Global workplace analysis found that companies can save more than $11,000 per year, per employee, by implementing hybrid working.

“Companies are quickly realizing that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to hybrid working,” said Mark Dixon, founder and CEO of IWG. “They are now adapting their approach to meet the new expectations of their employees, while taking advantage of the many competitive advantages that the hybrid brings, including reduced costs, improved productivity and increased talent retention. . »
