CWC Interiors president and COO FRED YUSON talks about how the next normal brings more mindful workspaces

- PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY

The pandemic has brought about a shift in how people work. What was used to be confined to an office space has now been brought home, and this way of working is expected to continue well into what is called the ‘next normal’.

Fred H. Yuson, the president and COO of CWC Interiors, is known in industry circles as a trailblaze­r, and as such, already has a vision towards the future direction of the company.

CWC Interiors supplies office modular systems and interior finishing for both commercial and residentia­l use.

“CWC is synonymous to working spaces even before the pandemic. We have built a reputation of having fulfilled clients’ needs in this aspect and will continue to do so in the years to come,” Yuson says, adding that CWC certainly evolves and adapts to changing needs.

“Productivi­ty is now not defined just by being or going to your old office space,” he shares. There has been significan­t change in the workspace environmen­t in the past two years, and Yuson believes that it will continue to evolve even as the world starts to open up.

What is important to Yuson and and his team is remaining in tune to these needs, and making sure to always add value and options.

“As an example, Work From Home is a concept that will continue on post pandemic,” he explains. “Any area in your home, as long as properlyeq­uipped, can be just as productive or sometimes even more.” They worked at communicat­ing this to their clients, assuring them that they had access to the best tools to achieve their productivi­ty goals.

EVOLUTION AND GROWTH

Yuson knows all about being productive at work, having his first worked as a cashier in his father’s grocery store. “I learned the ins and outs of running a business. I always knew that gaining success in any field meant learning as much as I can, be it through school or practical experience, and putting in the hard work,” he says of this time.

The skills that were honed in Yuson in those years helped him see the potential of the CWC portfolio later on. He first worked as a salesman for CWC way back during its inception 30 years ago.
