Why work in a WeWork

Yeah, yeah, yeah. But you can recruit from anywhere. Nonsense Just give me a phone and a laptop and I’m sorted. So how can WeWork really make a difference to recruitment? Apart from benefiting from Central Locations so that candidates and clients are only a stone’s throw away from you, you’ll also benefit from the WeWork Community.
