DEPEW, N.Y. — People Inc. has let go a commercial office space in Depew where 100-plus workers spent their workdays pre-Covid.
The company, a $196 million nonprofit that provides services to older adults and individuals with disabilities, sent most of its administrative and back office staff home for remote work in the spring, including the staff who worked in the 22,000-square-foot leased space on Walden Avenue in Depew.
CEO Rhonda Frederick said the lease with Uniland Development was due to expire in February. The agency had planned to move staff to its Elmwood Health Center when that program moves to new space as part of a $9 million expansion. Instead, the Depew site closed in October, saving the agency $200,000 annually in lease costs.
