Demand for Flexible Working Drives Regus’ Growth in Maryland
FREDERICK, Md. – (September 10, 2012) – Over the course of the past three months Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, has concentrated its expansion efforts in Maryland entering new cities, including Columbia and National Harbor. Today, the company announced the opening of its first business center in Frederick at 5100 Buckeystown Pike.
“There has been an enormous increase in the mobile workforce, which is supporting our growth. Whether you work for a large company or run a small business, chances are you are conducting business outside of your primary office,” said Donna Scott, Regus’ Regional Vice President. “As a result, Regus is investing in suburban areas allowing professionals to choose the ideal time and place for their work.”
Technology has enabled personal mobility enabling workers to be anywhere and still maintaining contact with colleagues and clients. Regus’ model helps keep productivity high while working on-the-go by providing a professional environment and support team to help customers get their work done.
Regus’ entry into Frederick is possible because of this work-shift trend. As more workers try to reduce commute times and businesses look to provide options that improve work-life balance, flexible working is gaining momentum. Employee satisfaction, increased loyalty and a reduction in overhead expenses are among the benefits associated with flexible working.
About one hour outside of Washington, DC and within close proximity to Ft. Detrick, the new business center provides entrepreneurs, small- to medium-sized businesses and multinational companies a range of options, including fully equipped offices and virtual offices as well as meeting rooms and business lounges.
Regus operates six business centers in the state with two more centers in Bethesda and one in Baltimore.
Regus’ model allows companies and individuals, who want to establish a quick presence in Louisville to do so in order to take advantage of the opportunities available with the biotech, food and healthcare sectors with minimal financial risk.
“There are great opportunities in Louisville for businesses to capitalize on. We look forward to working helping local businesses achieve their goals. With our downtown location and now this center, individuals can choose the best location that works for them,” added Doughman.
