HR departments and employers throughout Malaysia are now smack in the middle of the planning stage for 2022 — which is set to be a pivotal year for businesses recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic around the world. At the time of writing, workers in Malaysia are now returning to the physical workplace, although this is subject to the latest SOPs and guidelines to ensure that everyone’s health and well-being is prioritised.  

For many, this is also the first time since 2020 that the office has been open and accessible to employees — it’s been nearly two years since employees in Malaysia have been able to work from the office at full capacity. As such, the new year should be seen as an opportunity for employers to think about an office redesign (or some simple upgrades, if your budget is tight), with reports revealing that a quality workspace has a significant effect on the productivity of employees.  

This can include aesthetic designs to ensure that the workplace is a conducive environment for employees, as well as health-related facilities such as gyms, or even healthy food options within the workplace. With 2022 just around the corner, preparing the ideal physical office for your employees should be at the forefront of your thinking as employers and HR  professionals. 

With that in mind, the altHR team has worked together to come up with a list of amazing office spaces in Malaysia. Hopefully, these will inspire you to design the most inspiring work environments for your team in 2022.

1. Mindvalley, Kuala Lumpur

Mindvalley is a company that brands itself as “the future of education”, promising that it’s not too late to learn anything that you might’ve wanted to pick up back in school. With that, the personal growth platform reportedly spent RM1.3 million on a single auditorium for their workspace, and as a whole, their offices at Menara UOA Bangsar is one of the prettiest, most unique workspaces around.

It isn’t all aesthetic appeal, however, with Tatler Asia revealing that the office’s design scheme is intended to “enhance productivity” for employees. This boost in productivity will obviously vary from individual to individual, but the office space certainly looks great.

2. Google Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur

Google is a name that needs no introduction — you probably came across this article via Google search results. But did you know that the search engine giants have an official office in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia? Located at Quill 7 in KL Sentral, you’ll be able to commute to and from the office via the nearby KL Sentral public transport system, and a wide variety of facilities are available in abundance in the area.

Google Malaysia’s offices also feature bright communal areas and an overall design that has been localised to Malaysia, while you’ll also spot the localised spelling of the “Gerai Gugel” signage for its in-house cafe — which provides free flow of food and drinks for their employees. 

Plus, the office is decked out in a design that feels very green, with plants (we can’t confirm if these are artificial) strewn across the walls and ceilings for a very natural-feeling environment. 

3. M Moser, Kuala Lumpur

As a global design company with 25 locations around the world, M Moser says that its approach to workplace design is centred around people. This emphasis on human-centric design is supposed to ensure that employees are “effective and innovative”, and this is built upon the premise that workplaces that are “happier, healthier, and more productive” will improve the success of organisations. 

Plus, the company’s office space in Kuala Lumpur was reportedly the first Malaysian property to achieve the first RESET Air Certification by GIGA, which is a data standard for air quality excellence within a building. You can read more about the RESET certification process here.

4. Digi Telecommunications (D'House), Subang

One of the largest telecommunications companies in Malaysia, Digi’s headquarters are located at Subang Hi-tech Industrial Park and is home to a large majority of the company’s 1,500+ employees in Malaysia. D’House, as it’s named, is designed in the same vein of form as the company’s work culture: open, supportive, and dynamic. 

With facilities including a state-of-the-art gym and on-campus eateries, to wide-open communal spaces to catalyse collaborative work, the telco’s gigantic workplace feels like a university campus — designed to facilitate learning, innovation, and inspiration. The follow video should give you a nice walkthrough of D’House:

Prepare for the 2022 Workplace with altHR

2022 is set to be one of the most challenging years in recent memory for employers and HR professionals. Despite the fact that Malaysia is moving towards the endemic phase of COVID-19, it’s essential for businesses in Malaysia to stay agile and to future-proof themselves against any future obstacles (such as the lockdown and other restrictive measures across 2022/2021). 

To that end, it’s important to invest in the right digital tools. It’s absolutely crucial to ensure that the 2022 transition — from the office, to the office, or to a hybrid model — is made as seamless as possible. This involves the use of various processes and tools, such as Digi’s super app, altHR.

From an Onboarding module to welcome new hires virtually, to daily check-ins, a Documents module, and even a Rostering module to help with Team A/B setups, altHR continues to be an essential part of succeeding in the new normal. 

Keeping track of everything can be challenging, particularly for employers and HR professionals in the SME sector — but it doesn’t have to be. The world is going increasingly digital these days, and this trend is set to continue in the years to come. HR professionals are often faced with daunting, often tedious tasks on a daily basis — tasks that have become even more difficult to handle in light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation. 

But help is available, if you know where to look. Let us streamline your HR processes by managing and automating day-to-day tasks, so you won’t have to worry about things like paperwork, privacy concerns, time-tracking, or onboarding challenges. Instead, focus on the crucial pillars of your business, and the happiness of your employees. 

Sign up for altHR, the all-in-one digital solution that covers everything from payroll and onboarding, to staff management and providing employees with information kits. You’ve done it the old way long enough.
