Flexible workspace provider launches pay-as-you-go service in Edinburgh
A global shared office service has launched a pay-as-you-go offering to access workspace and meeting rooms in Edinburgh as part of its first international expansion.
As businesses around the world implement hybrid work strategies, WeWork has made it possible to book workspace by the day and meeting rooms by the hour through its app in the UK, Ireland, Singapore, and Australia.
Since its initial launch in New York City just one year ago and growth to now more than 200 locations across North America, this expansion takes WeWork On Demand to nearly 300 locations across 47 major cities, including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Dublin, Singapore, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth.
Samit Chopra, president and chief operating officer international, WeWork, said: “Now more than ever, flexibility is of utmost importance to both businesses and individuals as they navigate a new world of work. Leveraging our expansive portfolio of inspiring spaces in sought-after locations, WeWork On Demand fulfills the need for flexibility through accessible, convenient workspace in the era of hybrid work.
“With the expansion of pay-as-you-go access to spaces in major markets across the UK, Ireland, Singapore, and Australia, we’re providing more workers with the choice and tools to decide how, where, and when they want to work, right from their phones.”
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.
The international expansion follows strong growth and positive user feedback in North America, where monthly On Demand bookings for a workspace has quadrupled and room bookings more than doubled since March 2021.
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.
