Amanda Zafiris, head of international marketing, said: “With the rise of hybrid working and as Londoners prepare for the return to the office, ‘We’re Here’ – our first major UK campaign – showcases how WeWork is ready to meet the evolving needs of the capital’s workforce.
”Whatever their approach, companies are recognizing the importance of offering employees choice alongside convenient, accessible spaces for collaboration, innovation and mentorship. As we all look forward to reconnecting with colleagues ‘We’re Here’ highlights the smart flexibility and convenience WeWork offers while playing on the frustrations many of us have experienced during sustained periods of working from home.”
The campaign marks a marketing comeback in the UK for the co-working company after chief marketing officer Roger Solé took over from Maurice Levy’s brief tenure in 2020 as it was rocked by the economic consequences of Covid-19. WeWork had weathered an earlier year from hell when founder Adam Neumann exited the company and a planned IPO was shelved. In March, it announced it would float on the stock exchange through a merger with special purpose acquisition company BowX Acquisition.
