About Us

WOKE STORY

Woke is the brainchild of three friends who met at INSEAD Graduate Business School in France. They aspired to provide long-term improvements in the lives of individuals and the environment.

 

It is a fact that transportation and the quality of commute play significant roles in the development of a country. A study from the University of the West of England shows that every extra minute of commute time reduces a worker’s overall job satisfaction. In the Philippines, long and exhausting travel time can exceed 8 hours per day, a common reason employees leave their jobs and underperform.

 

The tiring travel from home to work (and vice versa) results in bad moods and low productivity, affecting not only their work but also their personal lives.

 

Woke eliminates this problem by getting you closer to your workplace. 

What We Stand For

Woke elevates the purpose of living by simplifying life by providing a cost-effective home – a safe place, a community, a place where growth and development are nourished and encouraged. A place where the values of mindfulness, respect, and sharing are preserved. Where you and the environment are taken care of, because with less time allotted to commute, there will be less pollution, thus, less harm to the environment and people – YOU (ME) making a big difference to our (WE) world.

 

WOKE Coliving Inc was incorporated in the Philippines on 13 November 2018. The company develops and manages safe and convenient co-living accommodations that elevate the living standard of the young Filipino workforce. The Woke’s mission is to reduce commuting time in return for a higher quality of life and an increase in personal productivity.
