Regus helps Swindon workers to catch the big match

By Anita Jaynes on 10 June, 2016

Workplace provider Regus is helping local professionals to catch the England vs Wales European Championship match by opening its business lounges up for free.

The match has been touted as one of the biggest Internationals for both countries in decades. Unfortunately, tournament organisers have scheduled a 2pm kick-off on Thursday June 16 – presenting a logistical challenge for the UK’s football mad workforce.

Regus has provided local workers with a solution, enabling them to work from nearby business lounges rather than struggling with the commute and potentially missing the unfolding drama at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in Lens.

Swindon workers can head to the business lounge at Windmill Hill Business Park where they will find a modern, productive work environment equipped with high-speed connectivity, coffee and refreshments, and professional front-of-house staff.

Richard Morris, UK CEO, Regus comments: “We know how much this match means to everybody and our network of business lounges puts us in a unique position to help. Our thinking is that, by working locally rather than commuting to the main office, people will be better placed to get to their favoured football-watching location in time for the 2pm kick-off.

“Of course, the match is in office-hours, so workers will still need to negotiate timings with their bosses. But we are seeing businesses think far more flexibly about working patterns, and we believe many will be willing to accommodate the football fever.”

The Regus business lounge is located at Windmill Hill Business Park, Whitehill Way, Swindon, SN5 6QR and is available for free on a first-come-first-served basis from 9am, June 16.
