Whitehall has signed a deal with IWG to provide 10 coworking spaces across the UK for civil servants to use when they are not in London.
The civil service contract would allow 430,000 workers to have more of a say in where and when they work.
“If you had asked me a year ago, I would have said exactly what I’m saying now: that office space – not all of it, but a large proportion – will be close to where people live,” said Mark Dixon, CEO of IWG.
Dixon added that hybrid working will become one of the most popular work models moving forward, as it helps businesses balance both the benefits of the office and remote working.
The hubs for civil servants also reflects the UK government’s goal of allowing more professionals to work wherever best suits them.
