Unilever launched its new workplace at One-North at Nepal Park in Singapore. It is touted to be the organisation’s first campus which intends to support the workforce greatly. After the pandemic, Unilever has adapted its operations and business model and has developed its workspaces to allow employees to work and connect.
The campus consists of a range of open collaboration spaces, project squad rooms, and quiet zones, with adequate tech and equipment available for hybrid working and teamwork. Apart from that, there is also a medical centre, yoga room, massage room, multipurpose court, cafés, hair salon, and employee minimart to serve the employees. The building is made energy-efficient by solar panel installations. They have automatic sensors and recycled material fittings that shut down the power in these workspaces when not in use. Single-use plastic is discouraged, and employees are encouraged to go paperless. All these efforts are aimed to make a more sustainable working model for employees.
The company also focuses on the career development of its employees. There is a Unilever Future Leadership Programme (UFLP) and Gen-Next internship programme for employees. These programmes offer career development opportunities and allow employees to explore different careers.
Leena Nair, the CHRO of Unilever, believes that the exceptional new campus in Singapore will be a place for their employees to create, connect, collaborate and celebrate. Chief Procurement Officer- Dave Ingram is also of the opinion that Unilever’s ambition is that the new campus turns into a global talent hub. According to Jacqueline Poh, Unilever’s new campus will develop and attract new talent. Singapore has been home to Unilever since 1965 and has been ever-expanding to become the hub of the company’s global businesses.
