In Brief

The workshare company is introducing a new level of service that will build a space and manage day-to-day operations

We’ve come a long way from mundane uniform cubicles to open offices and dedicated play areas at work. Employees’ expectations for top-notch office spaces are higher than ever. Startup WeWork wants to do what it takes to give companies just that with their new service service that decks out office spaces along with managing their day-to-day operations—something it coins as “space-as-a-service”.

WeWork execs say that the inspiration behind it are lean startups that often operate from smaller but ore efficient offices. Consequently, what WeWork hopes to achieve is to give bigger companies a chance to apply the same efficient principles to their own operations. Therefore the service is geared towards bigger operations who want to convert to smaller office spaces. WeWork will assign a cultural attache to each office it manages and provide management tools accordingly.

Bearing the above in mind, WeWork has no intention of becoming an office design firm. In fact, a three-to-five year office management contract precedes the redesign service. This is what makes the “space-as-a-service” program unique. For WeWork, it is important to be able  to manage the spaces they construct as the design principles are connected to the office culture.

WeWork is a key player in providing coworking and private working spaces across the globe, offering approximately 25% less cost than  traditional offices. WeWork isn’t new to catering to conglomerates, either, having collaborated with larger companies like Marriott, Bank of America, General Motors and many more.

WeWork has been providing the aforementioned service to select clientele. Following its casual announcement, it plans to introduce it to more businesses in the near future.
