As I said in my last all-company meeting, in areas of business that do not directly support our core business goals, we should accomplish some important tasks. It is difficult, especially energy and commitment have made many contributions. But it is necessary and we are taking steps to support and implement these actions that honor and recognize the service of our colleagues. Through this process, which can begin in just a few weeks in the US, we are getting to eliminate and reduce certain tasks and responsibilities, which can also increase efficiency and accountability.

I apologize for the late notice and any inconvenience.

We believe that WeWork has been led to a crisis situation due to their poor and ineffective management and their financial grip. In addition, C.E.O Adam Newman WeWork has found itself in hot water, one of the primary reasons. His apparent greed and ability to take advantage of a flawed system allowed him to raise an extraordinary amount of money for himself, while he showed his investors the dream of a complete IC Unicorn for webwork.
