IWG Partners with Bupa and Hussle to Revolutionise Hybrid Working Benefits
- The world’s leading provider of flexible workspaces announces extensive benefits package for hybrid workers
- Through Bupa and Hussle, IWG customers will now have access to health and flexible gym access worth £1,200
- Partnerships will help people live more flexibly and healthily during a stressful time, as 61% say they are relying on their employers for support during the cost-of-living crisis.
Date - IWG, the world’s leading provider of flexible workspaces has announced two new partnerships which will revolutionise workplace benefits for hybrid workers.
IWG, which includes brands such as Spaces and Regus, has partnered with international health insurance and healthcare group, Bupa, and flexible gym provider Hussle to provide IWG customers access to world-class private healthcare from Bupa and gym access to provide first class workplace benefits.
These partnerships build on the wellbeing benefits hybrid working naturally offers with workers able to take advantage of the time saved by working closer to home to find time to run, workout, or socialise with family and friends.
The announcement comes as new research from IWG found that amidst the cost-of-living crisis, Brits are increasingly relying on their workplace benefits to save money and stay healthy with 70% of office workers saying a good workplace benefits package has become more important to them in the last two years and nearly 1 in 5 (18%) saying they have increased the benefits they use.
With over half (51%) of workers saying they have cancelled or considered cancelling their gym membership due to rising costs, IWG customers will now be able to work and visit gyms close to their homes with free access to thousands of gyms across the country with Hussle, the UK’s most flexible way to get fit. IWG’s new partnership with Hussle offers members over £1,200 per year of additional value.
IWG customers will be able to book a free annual health assessment through Bupa. Designed to give people a better understanding of their health and wellbeing, new and renewing customers will also receive a personalised health report following their assessment and free access to Bupa’s healthcare and wellbeing app.
IWG Founder and CEO Mark Dixon commented: “For several decades, we have been at the forefront of hybrid working helping people to live and work flexibly around their own schedules in the heart of their local communities. I’m pleased our new partnerships with Hussle and Bupa will provide our customers in the UK a helping hand to stay fit and healthy”.
“Traditionally, private health care and gym membership have been reserved as perks of the privileged few. Now customers across all our brands including Regus and Spaces will not only have access to these benefits, but their existing ones too including member events, networking opportunities and access to the world’s largest co-working network”, said Dixon.
IWG has ambitious plans for growth, adding 1,000 locations across the network over the next year these partnerships are part of IWG’s wider strategy to provide customers a place to work in the heart of local communities.
Alaana Woods, Commercial Director at Bupa Health Clinics said; “We are delighted to be working with IWG to provide health assessments so customers can have peace of mind in their health and wellbeing. Healthcare has never been more important, and our health assessments are designed to give people an overall picture of their health and wellbeing, picking up any issues there may be and advising people how to boost their health.”
Jamie Ward, CEO of Hussle said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with IWG to give people more flexibility in how they balance working and workout out. We are proud to provide access to the largest network of gyms across the country and, as the biggest network of workspaces across the UK and around the world, IWG is a natural partner for us to help people across the country foster healthier, happier lives.”
