December 15, 2022 – IWG, plc (LSE: IWG), the world’s largest provider of hybrid work solutions, announces two new flexible workspaces in Washington, D.C., and Alexandria, Virginia, 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 two new Regus centers will offer IWG’s full suite of facilities, including private offices, co-working and collaboration spaces, meeting rooms and a host of tech services, like IT support. 

IWG will add two Regus centers in the following locations: 

  • 211 N Union St., Alexandria, VA
  • 2025 M St. NW, Washington, DC

“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. 

IWG’s new locations reflect the geographic diversity of the region as well as the growing demand for flexible workspaces in smaller communities, including small towns and suburban and exurban areas, over the past several years. IWG workspaces help drive the growth to the smaller communities within the Washington, D.C. metro.

Ranked among the best small cities to live in America, Alexandria is located just five miles south of Washington, D.C. and is primarily known for its rich colonial history as George Washington's hometown. Today, Alexandria’s local economy is flourishing with a lively nightlife, popular restaurants, shopping and much more. As the nation’s capital, Washington D.C. offers a plethora of business and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs and established businesses alike. 

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.
