Seattle, WA- September 8, 2022 – Today, WeWork (NYSE: WE), one of the leading global flexible space providers, and the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA) announced WeWork X Seattle, a strategic initiative to foster economic growth among Seattle-based companies by supporting a flexible return to work for businesses.

The need for flexible return-to-work solutions is at the forefront of business priorities now more than ever. Enthusiasm for hybrid workspace is especially pronounced in Seattle, where demand for WeWork All Access, one of WeWork’s most flexible offerings, was up over 100% in August 2022 compared to January 2022.

Further, WeWork X Seattle will provide GSBA with critical data and insights into how Seattle is returning to work — providing strategic decision-making resources for the city and its businesses.

As part of the partnerships, WeWork is offering members of GSBA access to certain incentives, including :

  • 50% off WeWork All Access monthly membership fees for 3 months for new members. WeWork All Access is a monthly subscription membership that provides access to hundreds of WeWork locations across the globe so that users can find a place and time to work; Terms apply, or
  • WeWork Private office space with 1 month free with a 3-month+ commitment, or 2 months free with a 6-month+ commitment. Terms apply.

The partnership ladders up to a global initiative with ten other cities across the world — including new city partnerships in London, Singapore, Boston, and Los Angeles, and refreshed incentives for established partnerships in New York, Paris, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Miami and Chicago, to help navigate the global movement towards flexible work and develop hybrid solutions.

“We are thrilled to partner with WeWork to support a global flexible return to work while fostering economic recovery in the greater Seattle area,” said Ilona Lohrey, President and CEO of GSBA. “Seattle’s workforce not only brings vibrancy to our neighborhoods but also builds a strong sense of community among our local businesses. We are excited to explore new ways of bringing people together, and WeWork offers incredible flexibility for our new way of coming to work and a strong foundation of inclusivity.”

“Now more than ever, businesses are looking for ways to stimulate economic growth and restore activity to pre-pandemic levels,” said Robin Cardoso, Territory Vice President, Head of Central & West at WeWork. “Finding flexible, sustainable and incentivizing ways to bring people back into the office is a major step in revitalizing Seattle. WeWork is proud to partner with GSBA to encourage hybrid workplace solutions for the local companies that help make the greater Seattle community stronger.”
