NEW YORK—Encouraging staffers to give him a good send-off, the WeWork human resources department reportedly invited employees Wednesday to sign goodbye checks for departing CEO Adam Neumann. “Please make sure before you go home today to go to conference room C and sign one of the goodbye checks for Adam, or at least write your name on one of the checks we’re passing around,” read the email from the company’s HR in part, adding that although it wasn’t mandatory, all WeWork employees could easily afford to take a few minutes out of their lunch break to let Neumann know how much he will be missed. “Get creative if you’d like and put a little personalized memo in the message or amount section of your check—something like ‘$500’ or ‘$800.’ Signing a cashier’s check or money order for Adam is a great way to show him you’re thinking of him as he leaves us. We know that when he looks through those checks and sees all the positive amounts you’ve written to him, he’ll really appreciate it.” The email from WeWork HR also requested employees to chip in to give Neumann a little parting gift of a $50-million Starbucks gift card.
