Real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield has put out a new report in partnership with CoreNet Global revealing how corporates view the value of flexible workspaces and coworking models.

The report found that two-thirds of companies utilize coworking spaces in some way, and several anticipate to double their commitment over the next five years.

“The results show that corporate leaders have a generally positive view of coworking and see flexible space as a growing part of their occupancy strategy,” said David C. Smith, Americas Head of Occupier Research at Cushman & Wakefield. “The percentage of employees with access to flex space is on the rise, and companies increasingly see this as part of a broader solution.”
