A recent report from Regus surveyed 2,258 UK-based office workers and company leaders to gauge their outlooks on metaverse and its impact on the future of workspaces.

Regus found that more than 2/3 of company leaders believe that the metaverse is the future of work, while a similar proportion anticipate that their company will embrace working in the metaverse in the future.

The report also found that more than 50% of both office workers and company leaders believe hybrid workspaces are key to giving businesses access to the metaverse in the years to come.

Other findings from the report:

  • 65% of business leaders believe the metaverse will be more transformational than any other videoconferencing technology.
  • 44% of office workers think communication will be improved by the metaverse.
  • 35% of both workers and leaders believe that onboarding and training will benefit from the metaverse.
  • More than half of the leaders surveyed agreed that the increased opportunities for interaction that the metaverse offers will improve hybrid and remote workers’ mental health.

These findings are a strong indication of the parallels between hybrid work and the metaverse, which go hand-in-hand as the metaverse has the potential to further enhance the hybrid experience that millions around the world have already embraced.
