A national workspace provider is offering workers affected by the planned industrial action on the London Underground this Thursday (August 6th) use of their office space, free of charge.

Thousands of Tube workers are set to walk out from 6.30pm tomorrow in a bitter ongoing row over plans for all-night service on five lines.

A  spokesperson for Regus, the company making the offer, said: “Those who cannot work in their normal location this Thursday will be given free business lounge access at the Guildford Cathedral Hill Regus centre, which provides professional workspace, wifi and complementary refreshments.”

The company expects demand for workspace to be high throughout the strikes as commuters seek places to work locally.

Richard Morris, UK CEO at Regus said: “Working from home is not convenient for everyone. Most people prefer to leave the house and work in a more productive environment.

Traditional office space,  “…a more productive environment”

“The Tube strikes don’t have to mean lost productivity, but they are a wake-up call for employers who haven’t adopted flexible working and addressed the practical challenges.”

Flexible working is already on the rise in the capital, with nearly half of all office workers now able to work remotely for at least half the week.
