BERLIN--()--Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, and Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH, are today launching the first city-wide trial of workhubs in service stations, designed to make life easier and more productive for the rising tide of motorists and flexible workers who need to work on the move.
“Regus Express” workhubs are open for business in 70 Shell service stations in and around Berlin, with facilities ranging from wifi hotspots to docking stations, modern business lounges and meeting rooms. All services at the stations can be accessed with a Regus Businessworld Card.
Regus is fast becoming the forerunner in 'third place' working - developing a global network of business services at non-traditional locations such as transport and retail hubs across Europe that cater specifically for flexible and mobile workers.
Berlin has been selected by Regus and Shell as the first city-wide trial, which could well be extended in the future. The two companies already have a partnership in France and have opened a Regus Express on the autoroute southwest of Paris.
Phil Kemp, Global Managing Director at Regus Third Place, comments: “Globally there is surging demand for more productive ways of working on the move. Two thirds of professionals work more on the move than they used to, and we see this reflected very clearly in the way that our one million customers’ requirements are changing. They want to work where, when and how it suits them.
Stephan Faul, District Manager and Project Manager at Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH, adds: “Our success at German service stations is due not only to our range of differentiated fuels and our CLUBSMART bonus programme, but also to comprehensive service. We are always working to expand our services for customers, to serve their needs even better with a really professional service, so we have decided to cooperate with Regus.”
Regus is the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, enabling people to work their way, whether it’s from home, on the road or from an office. Over 1,000,000 customers a day benefit from Regus facilities spread across a global footprint of 1,500 locations in 99 countries. For more information please visit: www.regus.co.uk
