If you enjoy the exchange of ideas and forming new connections with people of different backgrounds and talents to propel your business propositions, innovations and inventions, co-working space is the answer for you. For employers, this equates to sizeable cutdowns on upfront capital costs and steep rentals for prime office addresses.
With more companies moving towards the hybrid working model where employees are allowed to work from either home or office on selected days, co-working spaces will become an integral part of this trend.
According to data from workspace provider IWG, garnered from 300 workspaces in Britain covering hundreds of thousand of workers, 15% more employees visited their offices in May than in April, with more opting for a three-day office week as they warm to a hybrid model. IWG is also the owner of office solutions provider Regus and Spaces.
In Malaysia, Regus has opened its latest office at Bukit Bintang City Centre and will soon open another at The Exchange TRX, both strategically located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Regus is not a foreign name in Malaysia. In fact, with thousands of co-working locations in every major city and transport hub worldwide, it has garnered a solid track record as an office workspace provider since it started operations here in 2015.
To date, Regus is located across 39 different locations – from KL to Kota Kinabalu – in bustling areas like city centres, business parks and near transport hubs. This gives Regus members the advantage of having a cosy, neat and well-designed space to work from almost anywhere.
Pivoted on flexibility, Regus offers customised spaces that can be expanded according to the growing number of employees, plus creative structuring deals that come with attractive solutions and rents, including flexibility in handover dates.
Prioritising health and safety
With the Covid-19 virus still not eradicated, Regus is not taking any chances when it comes to its customers' and employees' health and wellbeing.
The company has implemented hygiene and physical distancing measures across all their locations based on local government and the World Health Organization standards to ensure a safer work environment. Its business lounges and co-working offices have been upgraded with seating arrangements and signages to make sure you can continue to work, meet and collaborate with peace of mind. Similarly, a set of health and safety guidelines governs the use of its meeting rooms, including spaced seating arrangements and clockwise direction for moving around.
Other measures include:
1. Frequent cleaning
Regus has increased the frequency of cleaning during the day, focusing on high touchpoint areas, surfaces and workspaces to meet global health and safety regulations.
2. Physical distancing
Regus has taken the principles of physical distancing and adapted them for the workplace. This includes how people move around the centres, with clear information, signage and protocols in place to minimise person-to-person contact.
3. Visible signage
All its centres have detailed health and safety guidelines on display in key strategic locations to remind visitors and customers on how to conduct business in the safest possible manner.
