Workspace provider offers free access to the business lounge at its Fort Kinnaird shopping centre site
Regus is offering free access to its business lounge at Fort Kinnaird shopping centre this Friday (25 November) to give workers a quiet space in which to retreat during the Black Friday bonanza.
The global workspace provider says it’s offering free access for the day, giving people a chance to work in a professional setting with free WiFi and refreshments, while staying close to the action so they don’t have to miss out on the bargains.
Richard Morris, UK CEO at Regus, said: “We’re saying to local workers – you don’t have to head to the office and miss the bargains. Come to our workspace in Fort Kinnaird and know that you’re ideally placed to stay productive and swoop for a bargain.
“Black Friday is just one day in the year but we’re finding business owners are generally thinking far more flexibly about how and where their staff work. Hopefully, initiatives like this will open more people’s eyes to the advantages of agile working such as improved worker wellbeing and productivity.”
According to Regus, flexible working is on the rise in the UK, with nearly half of all office workers now able to work remotely for at least half the week.
The company says it’s experiencing month-on-month growth in Businessworld membership, as employers turn to part-time and drop-in workspace to accommodate a distributed workforce.
