WeWork, the global shared workspace company, has signed an agreement with GRI Group to work together across Europe. Under the terms of the agreement, WeWork will become Europe Partner of the GRI Club and will be involved in GRI’s annual conferences and members-only activities. 

GRI Group’s headquarters in Europe are currently located at WeWork in Paddington, one of WeWork's 35 open buildings in the city. In light of their collaboration, the Group is now moving to WeWork's newest location in the Paddington area. The building, located at Merchant Square, is also set to be one of WeWork's largest locations in the UK (with over 3,000 members) and will be opening this summer.

As we continue to expand WeWork’s portfolio across Europe – where we're home to over 80,000 members – we're always looking to work together with local organisations like GRI Group.  At WeWork, community is at the heart of what we do, and I’m excited to be involved with an organisation like GRI Group which is bringing together like-minded individuals to connect and inspire each other, something we're seeing more and more in our community spaces around the world."

It also helps us to attract and retain talent which is great in such a competitive job market”.
