As companies continue to migrate to a smart flexibility scheme, WeWork introduces WeWork All Access, a monthly membership that provides access to any WeWork location in the world, including more than 25 buildings in Mexico, with the click of a button. Through this membership, users in Mexico will be able to access safe and productive workspaces by choosing the closest or most convenient location according to their activities.

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the vast majority of companies migrated to a home office scheme, which presented great challenges over time. Distractions, limited technology, long work hours, loss of loyalty, and the inability to establish clear boundaries between personal and work life, to name a few.

After months of navigating the crisis under strict sanitary restrictions, it is clear that people want to go back to the office, at least part of the week; however they do not want to return to the traditional model or lose the flexibility they have gained from working at home; even Gallup reports claim that more than 80% of employees would be more loyal to their company if they had flexible work options.

In Mexico, there has been a significant increase of almost 500% in the influx of people to WeWork locations, compared to the first months of the pandemic. In the same way, Mexico City is the second city in the world with the most flow of people, just behind New York. This is a sign that collaborators want to have a workspace and collaborate with their colleagues in a flexible scheme.

WeWork created the WeWork All Access membership to solve all these challenges and offers a solution for new mobility trends. WeWork All Access is a monthly passport to more than 700 locations in 150 cities around the world, where employees can find safe, customizable spaces, essential productivity services and convenient locations within reach.

"Companies have had to face very complex challenges due to the pandemic, with WeWork All Access we seek to offer practical solutions that make sense from a financial and operational point of view and in line with the new demands for flexibility," said Álvaro Villar, general manager of WeWork in Mexico. "With WeWork All Access we are taking the first step towards digitizing spaces by offering flexible space solutions without long-term commitments or unnecessary complexity, this is the future of Real Estate."
