WeWork Global Impact Report

WeWork hired HR&A to evaluate the economic impact of WeWork locations across the world for their 2019 Global Impact Report.

Building off our experience producing a three-city economic impact assessment in 2018, we developed a scalable workflow to automate the process for producing impact metrics for all of WeWork’s global locations, allowing them to reproduce the report in future years as they expand into new markets.

The Python based tool leverages public data APIs from the Census Bureau and Bureau of Labor Statistics and injests relevant demographic, economic, and sustainability indicators along with WeWork’s own internal member data and propritary econometric multipliers to model unique and compelling impact metrics for each city in which WeWork operates.
