Tired of working from home and not having the opportunity to interact with staff? WeWork has the solution to your problem!
Hybrid working is the new norm and WeWork can provide your company with office space in Grade A-listed buildings, furniture, branding, security and IT equipment for staff when they want a change of working environment. WeWork is a global company with offices worldwide to provide spaces for those who want to work individually as well as team members who know the importance of in-person collaboration within their company. WeWork offices are beneficial to all staff; especially staff who work remotely abroad for a company. Those who do not work in the main office can access a WeWork office to collaborate virtually with other staff members.
WeWork offers multiple memberships, each differs slightly depending on how frequently an individual requires access to an office space. WeWork On Demand is a pay-as-you-go membership for 1 person which will give them access to any office during standard working hours. The WeWork All Access Membership is a monthly subscription that permits members to access any office 24/7. WeWork All Access Membership for Teams is aimed at groups of 10+ people. The Teams membership is similar to All Access as members have 24/7 access to offices and pay a monthly subscription. All memberships operate under a booking system which requires members to pre-book hot desks, conference rooms and private office spaces and note the duration of their slot.
There are multiple types of WeWork premises which are available for staff to access depending on their location:
The Standard Office is a fully furnished private office space for between 1 and 20 staff. However, the interior has no extra facilities such as a reception desk, conference room or executive office.
