WeWork is trying to keep its employees in the office.
The coworking giant sent out a memo offering its community staff a $100 daily incentive for coming into work, The New York Times reports. Prior to this week, the company was allowing its employees to work from home; the shared workspaces remained open despite low traffic.
Because the company sublets office space to all types of businesses, some of which may qualify as "essential", WeWork is now trying to lure willing on-site staff members to return to their locations.
The incentive policy comes at an interesting time as WeWork is still recovering from a failed IPO attempt last fall and pandemic-related closures and disruptions are undermining the economy. The company is still hoping for a bailout from SoftBank.
