When I first read about Gate 3 WorkClub, I was drawn to the colourful, well lit work space. I thought the concept was brilliant, thoughtfully designed for the New Age worker!
Heath Row describes Gate 3 eloquently in his post, ? Gate 3 is absolutely wonderful: an open, well-lit, colorful workspace peppered with different work zones — quiet, private, shared — meeting and conference rooms, a brainstorming area sequestered by whiteboards, shared services, support staff, and a wide-ranging creative client base of members. The kind of place I’d want to work if I didn’t work in the Fast Company office — or out of my home.?
I wished we had it here in Singapore!
Yet, this story does not have a happy ending…atleast for now.
Before admitting to too many mistakes (which are plentiful) I will first claim that much of the foresight that drove this project was largely correct. To summarize
Valuable lessons for organizations who believe design of a workplace and employee contribution are strongly linked.
