WeWork Debuts Space Management Solution for Hybrid Workforces

By

The proliferation of remote and hybrid work models – vastly accelerated as a result of the pandemic – has created new opportunities for both employers and employees to fundamentally rethink the office and how they and their employees engage with it. While remote working creates few expectations for company workspace, many companies are offering their employees hybrid work: a mix of home-based working and in-office reporting. Increasingly, companies are downsizing to accommodate fewer employees in the office, which has resulted in space-sharing.

So how do you manage those spaces and ensure that everyone who is in the office has a place to work? How can you be sure you’re optimizing the time employees have in the office with one another?

Flex office space provider WeWork recently announced the launch of WeWork Workplace, a new space management solution built in partnership with Yardi, a provider of real estate software. WeWork Workplace provides companies with a platform designed to enable inventory management across office spaces, enhancing employee experiences and space optimization through insights and analytics. The solution can combine all space types (privately leased/owned, WeWork and WeWork shared/affiliate) within a single experience. Additionally, companies that may need overflow space will have the option to enable access to WeWork and WeWork affiliated locations for their employees globally.

WeWork Workplace aims to bring together space, asset, and people management capabilities, removing guesswork from designing a strategic work model by providing actionable data to inform decision making in real time. As a result, the software aims to help employers reduce real estate costs, while empowering employees to more purposefully engage with the spaces they choose and create more meaningful physical connections.

“Businesses today must solve for bringing flexible work models to life – optimizing their spaces without sacrificing the culture, collaboration and productivity that happens in-person,” said Scott Morey, WeWork’s President of Technology & Innovation, in a statement. “This is what we aim to deliver with WeWork Workplace. Combining our advantages in scale, speed and access to flexible spaces, with Yardi’s industry-leading software and tech capabilities, WeWork Workplace doesn’t stop at desk booking or at backend insights – it aims to solve for a dynamic, constantly evolving future of work.”
