WeWork’s CEO said your desire to go to an office depends on how “engaged” you are at work.
Sandeep Mathrani, who stepped in as CEO of the coworking startup last year, said that people most comfortable working from home are the “least engaged” with their company, while the “overly engaged” want to go to the office.
“No one is saying they don’t want to go to work. They are saying ‘I wanna go to work two or three days a week’ and ‘I’d like to work from home a day a week,'” Mathrani said during The Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything festival on Wednesday.
“It’s also pretty obvious that those who are overly engaged with the company want to go to the office two-thirds of the time at least,” he added. “Those who are least engaged are very comfortable working from home.”
