WeWork Adopts Hub-and-spoke Model
WeWork is pivoting to a hybrid work model as it prepares to bring employees back into the office.
Starting June 21, WeWork’s UK employees will work three days in the company’s headquarters, one day from a WeWork location and one day from home. The firm will be using a “hub-and-spoke” model that will feature main hubs across the UK including in Waterloo and central London, with 50 spokes across the city.
“Working at home is really efficient when you have a specific task to do,” said Mathieu Proust, UK general manager at WeWork. “Working in the office is more about having impromptu conversations and meeting one another.”

Proust added that a company-wide survey revealed that staffers who have returned to the office have seen a 54% increase in morale.
According to Proust, WeWork has been trying to improve its flexibility arrangements and wellness practices throughout lockdown, and is working to continue these enhancements in the future.
