WeWork Response to COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)

At WeWork, the health and safety of our members and employees is our top priority.  As we continue to navigate the situation with COVID-19, we’re taking necessary steps to protect the health and well-being of our community.

A note from our Executive Chairman

‘WeWork is in an incredibly unique position. WeWork is a service provider and we have an obligation to keep our buildings open. In the same way we expect certain businesses to remain open for us – whether it be a fulfilment centre to send us a package, a bank so we can handle finances, grocery shops and chemists to supply us our valued goods – we too have members counting on us to remain open so they can run their companies to generate revenue, pay their people and continue serving their customers. Where we believe we can operate our buildings safely, and in accordance with government policies, we will keep those buildings open.’

Marcelo Claure, Executive Chairman, WeWork

Prioritising the safety of our community

We are closely monitoring developments around COVID-19 and have implemented measures that prioritise the health of our members and employees.

Expert guidance
We are taking cues from and listening to the CDC, WHO and local government.
Supporting employees
We’ve implemented a work from home policy, reduced staffing models and restricted travel.
Increased sanitisation
We’re disinfecting common areas more frequently and providing sanitisation products.
Suspended events
All employee and member events are suspended until further notice.

Navigating the future of the workplace

We recognize 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 sanitization, prioritizing personal space, and implementing “house rules” for health—ensuring that members can continue working in safe and clean environments.
