He hybrid work has established itself as a strategic partner of firms in terms of well-being, family reconciliation, labor flexibility, and environmental protection. In this sense, the IWG group, the world's leading authority on flexible work spaces, has announced the opening of a new coworking center in Barcelona to meet the growing demand for hybrid work spaces.
The new facility, known as "Spaces Plaza Molina," is located in Via Augusta 123, a few meters from Plaza Molina in Barcelona's Sarrià-Sant Gervasi area, with a gross leasable area of 3,901 square meters, and can accommodate more than 500 hybrid workers.
Spaces Plaza Molina, as well as the other existing facilities in Barcelona, aims to inspire professionals in a space that encourages productivity, collaboration, and creativity. With this opening, the International Workplace Group affirms its position as the country's largest provider of flexible work spaces, not only in Barcelona, but nationally and internationally.
The IWG group's expansion strategy is to add 1,000 new workspaces to its global network, which currently spans 120 countries, which includes over 3500 coworking spaces under brands such as Regus, HQ, Signature, and Spaces.
Recently, the group has announced that it remains committed to the Spanish market and that it expects to expand into other Spanish cities such as Santiago de Compostela, Santander, and Pamplona, which are already responding to the hybrid work boom.
According to a recent IWG study, 85% of "Gen Z" workers want a workplace near home, while 51% want to work from home, and 25% feel it's important to have a large office in the heart of the city.
"We started 2023 with the intention of continuing to respond directly to the growing demand for hybrid workspaces, and we intend to reach more and more cities in Spain," says Philippe Jiménez. "This new facility in Barcelona is yet another example that this year we will open the doors of coworking facilities that will be critical to the region's economic development," says Jiménez.
