Workspace provider WeWork begins offering corporate wellness to users

Workspace provider WeWork has launched a full service, on-site wellness programme at its largest site in London.

WeWork is collaborating with corporate wellness organisation Reset LDN on the service, which will see Reset LDN deliver up to 40 classes per week to the 6,000+ members and WeWork employees at the 10 York Road site in Waterloo. Situated on London's South Bank, the building is marketed as the world's largest co-working space.

The classes will be held in a newly created, bespoke wellness studio designed to meet the needs of office workers, giving every member the opportunity to "train and focus on themselves".

"We know from experience how demanding office-based roles are and the effect this can have both mentally and physically on employees," Kira Mahal, founder of Reset LDN

"Our passion at Reset LDN is to encourage companies to invest in the wellbeing of their employees and we believe that by creating a ‘wellness under one roof’ option for employers we can remove some of the barriers restricting a positive work-life balance. For a time poor generation, this is the only solution that works.

"For employees we can provide a place of release, a personal challenge and a sense of community. For employers, we can offer a direct way to tackle workplace stress, cultivate employee happiness and build loyalty.”

Daisy Anderson-Perrin, Community Manager at 10 York Road, WeWork added: "We're always looking for ways to develop and strengthen our offering for our members, and we are delighted to be working with Kira, whose business we have enjoyed seeing grow and thrive in the three years she has been a WeWork member in London.

"From HIIT classes to yoga sessions, it’s been great to not only see the energy and enthusiasm from Kira and her amazing team of trainers, but to feel the positive impact these classes are having on our community here."
