The Malaga City Council has launched a project called “WorkBay” within municipal actions to contribute to the economic reactivation of the city, as well as to attracting and retaining talent and productive investment. The aim is to attract telecommuters from both within Spain and from other countries to the city.
The campaign includes, on the one hand, digital promotion actions, with the dissemination of audiovisual material on social networks, as well as the provision of a website where you can find out about the advisory services that are offered.
The project has a website, www.malagaworkbay.com, which offers information on services, transportation, accommodation, etc. for the transfer of teleworkers to Malaga. It is available in different languages: Spanish, English and German.
Those in charge of the Investor’s Office will attend to all the queries received by this channel and will adapt the services to the effective demands of professionals interested in teleworking from Malaga.
‘Málaga WorkBay’ is based on the experience that many teleworkers have brought to the city that stands out for the qualities that Malaga has such as quality of life, communications, international schools, the multiculturalism of the city, the productive fabric and, above all, the open character of the people of Malaga. The British market despite Brexit is one of the priority markets in this project.
‘Malaga WorkBay’ makes different services available to teleworkers to help them develop their business from Malaga. On the one hand, information is provided on the coworking spaces managed by the municipal company Promálaga.
These facilities are located in the center of Malaga and in the Technology Park, offering different spaces for teleworking, as well as meeting rooms and complementary services. All Malaga coworking sites that want to join the project will be able to do so, thus completing the offer of spaces that the city has.
Likewise, the Investor Office of the Malaga City Council will assist and advise all those who want to establish themselves in Malaga and will promote synergies with companies of different nationalities and with local brands.
The ‘softlanding’ services that will be offered are related to the search for a place to work or for meetings, search for a school, as well as all those information and advisory services on the procedures related to arrival in our city.
It should also be noted that within the framework of ‘Málaga WorkBay’ we are working with tourist housing entities and other types of establishments in order to make a battery of homes and spaces available to teleworkers to facilitate your move to the city.
This initiative is open to adding other establishments in the productive fabric of Malaga that consider that this customer profile could be interesting for their activity, thus reorienting their market and diversifying the offer.
