International Workplace Group (IWG), the world’s largest provider of flexible workspaces, announces six new flexible workspaces in Florida as the demand for hybrid working continues to grow with companies of all sizes permanently embracing the model. 

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. The new Florida locations include three Regus centers located in Tallahassee, Clearwater and Miami, and three Spaces centers in Naples, Coral Gables and Miramar Beach. 

IWG will add six new centers across Florida in the next few months with more to follow: 

  • Converge Miami Takeover (Regus, Miami) – November 2022 
  • 101 N Monroe, Tallahassee, FL (Regus; Tallahassee, FL) – February 2023
  • 26750 US Highway 19N (Regus; Clearwater, FL) – March 2023
  • Alhambra Circle (Spaces, Coral Gables, FL) – April 2023
  • Tamiami Trail E (Spaces, Naples, FL) – April 2023
  • 495 Grand Blvd (Spaces, Miramar Beach, FL) – April 2023

“We are delighted to be working with new partners to bring the numerous benefits of hybrid working to businesses, local communities and employees in the area. Over the past two and a half years, demand for hybrid working solutions has rapidly increased as workers enjoy a significantly improved work/life balance with less time spent commuting and employers benefitting from substantial cost savings and the ability to recruit from a wider pool of talent,” said Mark Dixon, IWG Founder and CEO. 

“With 82% of CFOs noting in a recent study that the hybrid model offers a significantly lower cost base, leading to an ever-increasing number of businesses committing to the hybrid model for the long-term. As a result, we will see the Great Lease Resignation of traditional office space continue and the growing appeal of shared office and co-working spaces as a much more attractive alternative,” said Dixon. 

Nicknamed the Sunshine State, Florida is the fourth most-populated state in the U.S., drawing thousands of tourists to its hundreds of miles of white sand beaches every year.  Ideal for those looking for a work-life balance with perfect weather all year around, IWG’s new Florida locations reflect the geographic diversity of the state as well as the growing demand for flexible workspaces in both urban cities and smaller, suburban communities over the past several years. The new Florida centers span across the peninsula state, helping drive the growth of a wide range of local communities spanning from the capital city of Florida to a small beach town outside of Tampa.

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 vast 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.
