Mr Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad said, “A move of this nature in the midst of a pandemic called for careful planning and was extremely demanding on the teams involved in making it happen. Our recognition goes to them for a job well done in very difficult conditions.”

This move reflects our intent to continue adapting and evolving, especially as the need for a more flexible working environment and the demands for a better personal vs work balance that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our new space at 1 Powerhouse creates an enhanced workplace experience, with state-of-the-art technology and connectivity and will provide a supportive and enjoyable environment improving the work experience for all of us.”

“Once COVID is behind us there will still be a demand for a hybrid working arrangement that allows people to find the best balance between work and personal life. We have embedded this principle in the design with modern, functional, highly adaptable and smart spaces. This will boost collaboration and connectivity between team members across all departments, creating the right atmosphere for innovative thinking and creativity across the organization.”

Featuring two floors comprising approximately 73,000 square feet, the new office space is designed to promote greater engagement and transparency, encourage crossfunctional communication and teamwork, as well as meeting the demands of workplace flexibility while ensuring the health and safety of employees.

With an open space concept, a hot desking system is utilised for flexible seating. To spark innovation, there are multiple spaces encouraging creativity and collaboration, including roofed garden terraces, breakout areas for discussions and a coffee corner. Ergonomic design is also applied with height adjustable tables, as well as an interconnecting staircase between floors to encourage employees to stay active.
