    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The core value of Regus is 'Customer, Colleagues and Commercial' , it should be 'Growth at the expense of Customers and Colleagues'

    The Senior management should consider the following:

    If Customer and Colleagues are so important why has the business frozen recruitment of relief staff whilst slowly reducing the headcount in centres

    Why does it not pay its salespeople commission on every deal done instead of only paying out if you hit unachievable target?

    Why do you need to send 10 emails to manila to sort out one simple billing issue?

    Why do you never give out salary increases yet expect more and more from your centre team

    Why is staff turnover so high?

    Engage more with staff to simplify and improve process
    Give GMs the chance to recruit another CSR if really needed
    Give GMs commission on EVERY deal they close - watch your number of deals go up

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
