WeWork to hire 1,500 refugees over 5 years

The Columbus Dispatch - - Market Summary - — From wire re­ports

WeWork, the am­bi­tious of­fice-shar­ing com­pany that has ex­panded into nearly 60 citiesl, has a new am­bi­tion: Over the next five years, the New York-based co-work­ing space­turned-life­style brand plans to hire 1,500 refugees glob­ally as it seeks to fill jobs in its rapidly grow­ing busi­ness.

The ini­tia­tive, which fol­lows an an­nounce­ment that it plans to hire a sim­i­lar num­ber of veter­ans, is in step with other high-pro­file ef­forts by com­pa­nies to hire refugees. WeWork CEO Adam Neu­mann, said the move is “not a po­lit­i­cal state­ment.”
