Spaces, part of IWG (LSE:IWG), the world’s largest flexible workspace company, announced the launch of a new concept at Spaces Napa Valley, California. Created in direct response to the growing demand for flexible workplace solutions accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, IWG has introduced a new concept exclusively in retail locations, putting world-class flexible work-space facilities at employees’ doorsteps, reducing their commutes and providing a better work-life balance.
“In the wake of the global pandemic, the world of work has undergone a wholesale evolution,” IWG Founder and CEO Mark Dixon said. “While employees have wanted the ability to work remotely in recent years, many still want to return to an office environment at least part of the time. The pandemic has shown how employees can be productive and efficient in this changing model, and we are already seeing significant shifts in work policies that will allow a hybrid workplace model going forward. Since founding IWG more than 30 years ago, we have been at the forefront of global workspace trends and are looking forward to introducing our latest innovation with the launch of Spaces Napa, the first of several locations that will help utilize existing retail space while empowering a new generation of hybrid workers.”
Spaces is the first flexible workspace brand to conceptualize and launch a retail-focused model set in mixed-use locations in suburban and rural markets. The concept is designed to have universal appeal and will resonate with all workers from entrepreneurs to enterprises and independent contractors, who may visit a central headquarters for meetings and events while working some of the time from home or at regional offices nearby.
