WeWork widens on-demand rollout
The coworking operator has continued its turnaround strategy by confirming it will offer pay-as-you-go desks and meeting rooms bookable through an app.
WeWork On Demand had been widely anticipated and is now available in 300 locations in 47 cities from the US to UK and Singapore to Australia.
Prices in Europe will be €45 per day, with meeting rooms starting at €15 per hour. Since its initial launch in New York City – $29/day or $10/hour – last year the new service line has grown to 200 locations across North America.
Mathieu Proust, WeWork general manager, UK, Ireland and emerging markets, said: “As workers across the UK return to the office, we have seen significant interest in more flexible options for workspace and WeWork On Demand underscores our commitment to meeting the changing needs and demands of the new hybrid workplace.”
WeWork On Demand meets the growing interest in alternative workspaces, whether as a third space for employees to leverage in between their home and office or for fully remote teams to come together.
In North America, since March 2021 WeWork On Demand bookings for a workspace has quadrupled and room bookings more than doubled.
With nearly 70,000 bookings to date, users are utilising WeWork On Demand to quickly arrange in-person meetings, find a dedicated workspace while traveling in another city, or secure rooms to collaborate with their teams.
