IWG,plc, a provider of flexible workspaces, has opened a new Regus center in Hutchinson, Kansas, as the demand for hybrid working continues to grow with companies of all sizes permanently embracing the model.
The new Regus location is in the heart of Hutchinson, near the Hutchinson Regional Medical Center and the Hutchinson Mall. The small city of roughly 40,000 people is known to locals as “Hutch” and hosts the Kansas State Fair and National Junior College Athletic Association Basketball Tournament each year. The new co-working space will be located at 1632 E. 23rd Ave. in Hutchinson.
Growing demand for flexibility and access to professional spaces is underscored by record demand for hybrid working with IWG adding two million customers in the last year, as more and more businesses empower workers to work close to home in the heart of local communities.
A part of the extended Wichita suburbs at about an hour’s drive from the city, IWG’s new Hutchinson location reflects the geographic diversity of the state as well as the growing demand for flexible workspaces in suburban and rural areas, beyond city centers, as businesses continue to adapt to hybrid work models. The new center opening in Hutchinson provides workers with convenient flexible workspaces that allow for more focus on productivity and less time commuting as the hybrid work model continues to grow.
In the wake of the pandemic, many workers have relocated to suburban and rural locations for a better work-life balance, and those centers across IWG’s network continue to see rapidly increasing demand as employees choose to work close to home.
Among IWG’s global customer base are 83% of Fortune 500 companies, who benefit from access to IWG’s unparalleled network of workspaces including 1,100 locations in the U.S. and 3,500 locations in over 120 countries around the world.
As the demand for hybrid working solutions accelerates, IWG is opening the majority of its new locations in partnership with commercial real estate owners, developers and franchisee investors. Partnering with IWG enables landlords to add value to their properties and benefit from IWG’s innovative tech platform and proven sales and marketing model. Strategic partnerships are varied and flexible – anything from simple fit-outs to revenue and profit-sharing arrangements. The IWG team can tailor solutions in whatever format and style to meet the specific needs of buildings and customers, including private offices, co-working areas, collaboration spaces, business lounges and meeting rooms.
