As more employees, companies and building owners adapt to the post-COVID workplace and opt for hybrid work, International Workplace Group (IWG) is emerging as a true leader in the booming flexible workspace industry. IWG boasts 3,300 locations worldwide across its portfolio of flexible workspace brands, which includes Regus, a professional workplace brand; Spaces, a creative workplace brand; HQ, a hassle-free workplace brand; and Signature, a luxurious workspace brand. Now, business investors, institutional investors and building owners have a prime opportunity to take part in this workplace revolution by partnering with the worldwide industry leader, building flexible workspaces and driving operating income from day one.

And when a partner signs with IWG, they aren’t just getting the backing and operations manual of an established company, they are tapping into the resources and support of a multi-brand, global powerhouse in flexible workspaces.

"IWG is not just another flexible workspace provider — we have access to the industry's largest client base," said Wayne Berger, IWG CEO of the Americas. "Our expansive client base of 10 million daily users, and our relationships with 85% of Fortune 500 companies, empower us to offer the ubiquity and convenience that businesses require. With IWG, companies can have their team ready to work in a new location within 24 hours. Our unparalleled service ensures that all their workspace needs are met with confidence."

IWG sits down with every prospective investor and lays out a financial model to showcase when they will recoup their investment and how they can drive income and bring in a premium over-market rent, helping building owners understand their best floor plan. 

Once the agreement is signed, IWG has a team for design, construction, sales, marketing and everything needed to build, operate and launch a successful new flexible workspace.

Thanks to IWG’s unmatched resources and expertise, business and institutional investors will have access to the most lucrative real estate opportunities for their locations. IWG has established more than 1,000 locations in the U.S. alone over the past 23 years. The company knows what works, and it has the technology and evaluative resources to ensure that it finds and closes on only the best locations.

"Ultimately, IWG presides over the largest global platform in the flexible workspace sector," Berger said. "Why does this matter to property owners? Each year, we receive 1.5 million inquiries from individuals, corporations and professionals seeking workspace. The demand is consistent and growing, and we're striving to meet it with adequate supply. Our extensive network fuels this demand, which consequently necessitates more locations. So, if you're a building owner or investor, now is an unprecedented time to partner with IWG and help us satisfy this revolutionary demand."
