How Corporate Spaces Are Defining Happiness and Productivity for the Modern Worker

How Corporate Spaces Are Defining Happiness and Productivity for the Modern Worker


September 2016

Presentation from August 2016 Sydney Corporate Real Estate Forum. Robert, who lived in London until 2013, has worked in HR transformations and technology for the last decade. “I’m very big on change,” he explained. He had the perfect case study “top of mind” as he discussed the crucial synergies between HR, corporate real estate and the workplace: KPMG’s brand-new office at Tower Three, International Towers Sydney, where the company occupies the uppermost floors. “Workplaces are changing,” he said. “It’s all about shedding old habits and getting into new ones. We are quite openly trying to increase collaboration.” As to shedding old habits, “not one person in KPMG Australia has their own office,” Robert stated. “Our CEO has been a great advocate for our new, open office plan. He has been moving around a lot in the space to connect with employees. There is an office he uses a lot, but he is not there all the time. And when he’s not there, that office is available for others to use.”
