Regus Business Confidence Index October 2013

East or west, mature or emerging, it’s all about a sustainable future

Global business confidence remains steady; mature economies are showing confidence gains; and emerging economies have tempered their outlook somewhat. But no-one in business is letting a confidence uplift divert them from a continued focus on efficiency gains. Mature economies have learnt the lesson from the recent recessionary period and are ensuring that they seekout further efficiencies; and emerging countries want to ensure that they avoid the West’s historic boom-and-bust cycle. Those efficiencies are concentrated on better value for money service providers, higher return on marketing investment, improvedemployee retention and less fixed office workspace.
