Our new plants are in! We are strong proponents of Environmental Psychology and it plays a big role in our designs. Thanks to Rocket Farms, our vision has finally been fulfilled. They provided us with over 200 plants to line the beams in the lounge and help us bring the outdoors in. If you are interested in getting plants for your own space, contact Jason Kamimoto at Rocket Farms. He so knowledgable and amazingly helpful!

Changing the work environment to drive the productivity, well-being, and success of our community is at the foundation of Werqwise...but the positive impact does not stop at our members. We are also dedicated to the sustainability of the work environment – working hard to minimize the impact our building and operations have on the natural environment. Our sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality.
I have spent the last eight years of my life transforming small and medium sized business from loss to profit. With over 35 years in the recruitment industry, most of my success can be attributed to understanding people and providing them with what they need to be successful.
Increasingly, having an office location in downtown San Francisco is becoming essential when attracting and retaining top talent. Work/life balance is a top priority for more and more people in the workforce and those looking for jobs, so commuting out of the city is something the best jobseekers often try to avoid. They may be the perfect fit for the position and your company, but the location is not a perfect fit for them. Companies in the Bay Area, for example, are finding it particularly challenging hiring sales teams in Silicon Valley and engineers in San Francisco. The only way around this is to open a remote office. An office that is in an ideal location for all commuters can be hard to find, especially one that makes sure your remote teams remain connected to you, your culture and your brand; we can help with that. Werqwise is located near the hub of San Francisco transportation - down the street from the Montgomery Bart station, walking distance to the San Francisco Caltrain Station, situated near stops for major Muni Bus lines and only one block from the new Transbay Terminal set to open in June. All our private offices are customized for you to reflect that they are yours not ours.
In the workplace, people are having trouble getting sh#t done. According to Fast Company, in the United States alone, over $588 billion is lost each year from the effects of workplace distractions. Distractions elevate stress levels, cause unwarranted fatigue, create work/life imbalance and, more important than any other issue, are a leading factor in people losing control over their work environment and lives. These result in unhappiness, reduced motivation, and higher turnover in addition to missed work goals.
Stuck. Stumped. Stagnant.
Stuck at one desk. Stumped by a lack of inspiration. Stagnant during the day. The office shouldn’t make you feel boxed in or limit you in any way. The solution is simpler than it seems – Activity Based Working.
