Washington Post Polls Employees on New Office Location, Exercise Habits
Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth is looking for a "cheap" building to move her paper, but apparently price isn't the only thing she's considering. In a survey emailed today, the Post polled its employees about their work habits to help decide on a new office location.
"We are in the process of considering various locations for our new headquarters," writes Post Chief Financial Officer Usha Chaudhary in the email, which makes the Post's move from its 15th St. headquarters seem even more likely. Questions include:
- "If you normally eat lunch, what is your typical routine?"
- "If you regularly exercise during the work day, where do you typically exercise?"
"Do you typically run errands during the work day?"
The survey also asks which amenities–including a shoe repair, a salon, and a bank—would make Posties work harder.
