WeWork’s significant commitment through Tent featured in the Washington Post

The Washington Post’s Jena McGregor wrote a story recognizing WeWork’s commitment to hire 1,500 refugees by 2021. The commitment, announced when the company joined the Tent Partnership for Refugees, will enable the rapidly growing business to fill open positions across a number of functions. 

WeWork’s hiring initiative began as a pilot project with the International Rescue Committee, after which the company reported their refugee employees “had extremely high feedback from their co-workers, from their bosses and from members.” One year into the program, 95 percent of these hires were still with the company, leading WeWork to expand the refugee hiring program.
