First embraced by the likes of Google, Apple and Facebook, the open-office concept can now be found in companies big and small worldwide. Even Keppel Land has chosen to adopt this innovative plan when it moved into its new premises at Keppel Bay Tower last year.
Often regarded as the workplace of tomorrow, the open-office trend has gained popularity because it promotes creativity and encourages collaboration. The removal of cubicles also symbolises the reduction of hierarchical structures and the elimination of social barriers—personnel across various levels and departments are now empowered to kickstart conversations wherever they are. This increased sense of mobility will also help facilitate a greater exchange of ideas.
An open-space layout brings with it a whole new working experience altogether. You’ll get to meet and mingle with new colleagues, including the following colourful personalities. So smile, and don’t forget to say hi.
