by Dave Fano

There’s one question I hear every day from Fortune 500 leaders: How do you create the right environment for today's employees who are more mobile and more flexible, and want to work somewhere that allows them to thrive personally and professionally?

With more than 300 locations across over 80 cities, WeWork has a front-row seat into the process of finding, designing, building, and operating a workplace. Our integrated team of real estate experts, designers, architects, contractors, and community managers knows that creating the optimal work environment is about more than the right location, the perfect furniture, or the best coffee. It’s about bringing all of these elements together and ensuring your workspace is engineered for all the ways your teams work best—driving the human connections that result in better work.

At WeWork we’re proud to deliver this experience to the more than 1,000 enterprise companies within our locations around the world, but that’s just one piece of the puzzle. Looking ahead, we’re focusing on leveraging our insights, our scale, and our in-house team to help enterprise companies deliver an amazing work environment everyday, everywhere—whether it’s in WeWork locations or in their own spaces through our Powered by We offering.

That’s why I’m excited to announce that Craig Robinson will be joining WeWork as global head of Enterprise Services for Powered By We.
