Companies operating in international markets are generally reporting better results (revenue, or profit, or both) than those concentrating on their domestic market. The only exception is China, where state-sponsored infrastructure investment and development is providing disproportionate domestic market opportunity for Chinese firms. These findings indicate that foreign expansion is good for business and should be considered by domestically-focused companies. There is a gulf between the attitude of companies already operating internationally – where 80% intend to expand still further – and those solely operating in home markets – where only 42% intend to expand abroad over the next few years .

Contemporary technology enables people to work in a wide variety of places apart from traditional offices. People now undertake work activity in a variety of venues such as trains, planes, coffee shops, hotels and at home. Partly because of this, traditional offices tend to be under-occupied, and a view has developed in corporate real estate circles that to improve the efficiency of the corporate workplace, its focus should be as a place of ‘exchange’, which prioritises provision for people to meet, while work that they undertake on a solo or individual basis should occur wherever else they happen to be. This report covers research to examine the assumption that it is equally productive for people to work anywhere. It is based on empirical evidence from a large scale online survey and a suite of systematic face to face interviews on the issues pertaining to where people choose to work, and why they do so.
Positive business employment intentions are focusing on flexible working practices, as firms across the world seek to boost growth. Slow global economic progress and market volatility have somewhat curbed the positive surge reported in April by the twice-yearly Regus Business Confidence Index that finds business optimism has undergone a modest contraction. In line with this dampened confidence, businesses’ expectations for the full momentum of recovery have been pushed back to the second half of 2012.
Social networking rapidly and pervasively has become a part of our personal lives. With Facebook declaring more than 500 million active users, more than 2.5 million websites linked to the renowned social network, and even had a Hollywood film made about its founder, it is undeniable that the social networking phenomena has taken a hold.

Global business optimism, having undergone a slight decline in 2010, has now surged ahead, according to the latest half-yearly Regus Business Confidence Index.
This latest global business survey from Regus clearly shows that flexible working practices are now mainstream across the world. Offering employees flexible working conditions (defined as being able to choose when and where to work), reduces costs, contributes to business performance, improves motivation and productivity, helps access a wider talent pool, and helps retain employees through an improved work-life balance.
In a worrying development for equal opportunities across the globe, this latest research report from Regus has shown that the proportion of firms intending to hire more working mothers has slumped by one fifth since the same time last year. Compared to a year ago, when 44% of companies planned to hire working mothers, only 36% expect to do so in 20111. These findings will be of particular concern to women’s groups as overall employment prospects brighten with the accelerating global economy in the New Year. The new study also reveals a residual proportion of businesses who continue to harbour concerns about employing working mothers, along with some detail as to what those concerns are.
