WeWork creates flexible workspace solutions for all your needs

Spread the love

The future of work is rapidly changing, and this year has been no different. 2020 has been unprecedented in many ways, with various industries shifting to agile strategies and differentiated modes of working to optimise their workforce best. Evolving with these changing needs, the flexible workspace industry is more poised than ever to continue its growth trajectory. According to JLL’s report titled: A 360⁰ view of India’s flexible workspaces, in the first nine months of 2020, the Indian flex space market witnessed a net absorption of more than 17 million sq ft. The pace is only expected to increase in the upcoming quarters with a broader recovery expected in 2021. Organisations are revisiting their requirements, making personal health and hygiene as the priority for their assets and employees. As a result, these businesses will choose to change their space requirements as well as the number of seats needed for employees, and WeWork’s flexible offerings would be the perfect solution.

Every WeWork facility
has revised its spatial guidelines, seating layouts, and social distancing norms. It is equipped with all health and safety measures as members return, keeping government and industry body guidelines in mind. WeWork is also the only shared workspace in the country to have received the global certification from The British Safety Council. The certificate is in recognition of the efforts taken towards stringent risk management and control measures to keep the workspace environment safe and secure for the WeWork community.

While the future of work is continually changing, what remains the same is the need for engagement and a sense of community that flexible workspaces provide. Irrespective of the situations that have arisen in the recent past, at WeWork, there is constant engagement with members, employees and stakeholders through various workshops, webinars and networking sessions. With remote-working conditions, WeWork has ensured a seamless transition for members getting back to work through the innovative, digital-first approach. While safety is of prime importance, companies are also looking for a workspace that is accessible and flexible. This is where WeWork stands out from the rest as it is not just a well-designed, open space, but also offers a flexible workspace solution specifically for you.

Some of the key factors that make WeWork the best place for you to find your workspace are:

Workspace solutions for all sizes

Organisations today have a long checklist to consider before committing to a workspace. Factors such as ease of access, reliability, additional costs, and stringent health & sanitation measures come into play. At WeWork, you can create a workspace model that caters to your specific needs. There are three types of working models: hot desks, dedicated desks and private offices. This means that enterprises, startups, freelancers and SMEs alike can choose what works for them, and create a cost-efficient and comfortable model for themselves. With these tailormade working solutions, your fixed costs remain the same, which in turn offers significant savings of up to 15-20%. These models also provide flexibility to increase or decrease workforce as per market dynamics without worrying about the lock-in period of the lease or paying fixed rents.

Adapts to your schedule and requirements

Hybrid models of remote work are likely to continue with many organisations assigning specific roles to a permanent work-from-home model of working. In cases like these, this assigned workforce is sure to miss the activity and buzz of being in a workspace. According to a report by McKinsey & Co
, only 5% of the Indian workforce was able to work remotely between three and five days a week without affecting productivity. With WeWork India’s “
On-Demand
” initiative, workers will be able to experience a workspace economically and functionally, without compromising on factors such as productivity and safety. These day passes allow individuals to book a desk at a select location through a microsite. Freelancers, entrepreneurs and startups can also book meeting rooms for a day, allowing them to conduct their work schedule with minimal disruption. Additionally, WeWork also has options for virtual tours, which allows everyone to experience a location before choosing a space to work from.

Outdoors are the next big thing

As more and more members return to work, there has been a rising trend in demand for outdoor spaces which is proving to be a viable solution for people who want a change of atmosphere at work. The fresh air and non-restrictive nature of these spaces allow people not to feel tied down to their desk or a designated workspace. In India, 14 WeWork locations across six key cities have outdoor spaces that have been well-equipped for members to have group meetings, facilitate meals or work outdoors for long hours.

Now, work near home

An article in Forbes stated, “the desire to avoid crowded commutes and urban areas will lead to the rise of the flexible suburban office and the introduction of WNH (Work Near Home).” Over the last 6-8 months, more people have moved back to their hometowns and are once more living at home. Work Near Home allows members to access a WeWork location anywhere across the country, and can therefore find flexibility with a place close to home. This “Work Near Home” model provides greater flexibility for startups, entrepreneurs, SMEs and enterprises, allowing them to cut down on their travel time, and feel more comfortable and safe.

Easy solutions for rostered work things

With more companies moving to rostered work timings, it’s become difficult for businesses to find a space that allows flexible workspace models. These models are built on collaboration, and organisations have many things to consider while making these staggered working models. Key considerations include size of teams working, work synergies, and efficiency. This sense of collaboration, community, and understanding is what WeWork is designed to cater to. With WeWork’s flexible workspace model, enterprises and organisations of all sizes will be able to adapt to, and consistently change their staggered working hours for employees, making it easier to maintain a strong sense of community and teamwork.
