DALLAS—The increasing migration of flexible office space and co-working locations to areas outside of major metropolitan cities globally is creating a flex economy that could contribute more than $127 billion to US local communities in the next decade, according to the first comprehensive socio-economic study of suburban workspaces from Regus. This global migration could contribute more than $254 billion to economies around the world during that same time period.
