Description

“As the flexible workspace sector continues to evolve, the hybrid model, where providers offer a mix of co-working spaces and private offices, is set to become more prevalent among serviced office providers.
The shift towards hybrid space reflects the eagerness of serviced office providers to target a wide range of clients, with an increased focus on offering agility and options to occupiers of all sizes. Companies are also increasingly looking beyond a private office or dedicated co-working space, seeking hybrid environments that offer businesses both private office space and a more collaborative environment.”
