While working from home has its perks, people are excited to get back to their workspaces. The office provides a culture and connection that can't be replicated via remote working. Flexible workspace provider WeWork understands this and is committed to providing its members and employees with the best work experience.
According to a report by JLL, by 2030, flexible workspaces could comprise 30% of corporate commercial property portfolios worldwide. In line with this, WeWork is flexible enough to offer space as a service.
Karan Virwani, CEO at WeWork India says "We continue to see rising demand for flexible workspaces as corporates relook at their office space requirements. WeWeWork India is providing members with multiple flexible options to suit their needs, whether they are looking to reduce commute time and Work Near Home (WNH) or simply want a change in scenery. We have introduced some effective solutions to help businesses ease into their new routines and get back to the office. These range from safety precautions to new offerings and HR policies to ensure our employees and members adapt to the new normal."
"Most people are working from home since March 2020 and it has become hectic, add to it the pressure that comes with battling a pandemic. We understand that virtual team meetings can never replicate the sense of community one gets at WeWork. We are excited to get back to work at WeWork, as it creates a workspace where people get the opportunity to collaborate and network. Additionally, we enjoy perks such as wellness classes, discounts, pop-ups, fitness facilities, meals, 24x7 building access, etc. that contributes to the overall wellbeing and employee satisfaction. The safety protocols they have undertaken and the flexible working options they provide are extremely useful and make us feel very much at home but with all the comforts of a workplace." said Pawan Maini, Regional Director India, Mace Project and Cost Management Pvt Ltd (WeWork member)
