Navigating the future of the workplace

Moving forward, together

As we think about the future of the workplace, we recognise that while physical distancing may be part of our new normal, collaboration and human connection will remain more important than ever. That’s why we’re increasing sanitisation, prioritising personal space and implementing behavioural signage – ensuring that members can continue working in safe and clean environments. 

The following outlines our plans and strategies for enhancing our spaces and services. As we continue to build on this foundation with industry experts and partners, we will provide ongoing updates.

Improving indoor air quality

Since 2012, WeWork has collaborated closely with Arup, a leading global engineering consulting firm, to design industry-leading workspaces. Recently, we engaged Arup to identify how we can improve indoor air quality in our spaces using our air distribution systems. The findings are informing short- and long-term updates to our space design and HVAC strategies.
