UEM EDGENTA BHD has collaborated with co-working space provider Common Ground Works Sdn Bhd to introduce co-working facilities at its headquarters in Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur.

The contemporary styled co-working area spans across one and a half floors at Menara UEM and is custom built exclusively for UEM Edgenta’s employees and guests.

“Our goal is to improve organisational excellence and the co-working space model is ideal to spur a new and more progressive culture among our employees. As a company, we are made up of diverse and agile project teams working daily on innovative and value creation projects. This new feature will increase collaboration among our project teams and is ideal for us to attract the new and younger generation of working professionals, while positively elevating our employer brand in today’s competitive talent market, ” says UEM Edgenta managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Azmir Merican.

The facility features an open and versatile area where UEM Edgenta’s employees can work, socialise and hold events.

Apart from operating the co-working space, Common Ground will also curate a multitude of business and lifestyle events catered just for the staff.

With the addition of Menara UEM, Common Ground currently operates 13 venues across the Klang Valley and Penang. It also has regional presence in the Philippines and Thailand.

“What we are forging with UEM Edgenta epitomises the shifting and emerging dynamics of the business world. Common Ground has been bridging the gap between the corporate landscape and co-working sphere over the recent years because what we are seeing is a genuine improvement in the company’s quality of work, connectivity and culture.

“The enterprise solutions we build encompass more than just a workspace or collection of premium amenities. We are genuinely committed to cultivating a synergistic community through the events and partnerships we bring to our enterprise clients, ” says Juhn Teo, co-founder of Common Ground.
