The Future of the Workplace: How Singapore is Preparing


Leading Changes that Shape the Future of the Workplace

Compass Offices Business Lounge

The evolving landscape of workplace strategies has led organisations to adapt their physical spaces to new ways of working and adjust their corporate real estate portfolio with consideration to the macro economy and the operating environment. The physical office continues to be a vital component in the workplace as an anchor that brings employees together. In short, the effective alignment of this capital investment can drive a productive and inspired workforce that supports achieving corporate goals.

Furthermore, a healthy workplace is essential in recruiting of talents and retention strategy, a recent Deloitte study found that Gen-Z and millennials are increasingly drawn to organisations that create workplaces that reflect their values and are generally more health-conscious than their predecessors. 


Sustainability plays a big role for me. An employer that is supposedly committed to it but hardly knows what to do with the topic behind the scenes has no future for me.”—Gen Z respondent.


The underlying principles of the changing demands on a physical office thus offer leaders an exciting opportunity to use an evidence-based approach to align capital and operational investment with what drives a productive and engaged workforce.

Singapore Land Tower is also next to the Raffles Place MRT Station, a short walk from the Marina Bay financial district. The 48-storey landmark tower was newly renovated and upgraded into a premium Grade A commercial building, making it an ideal office location for a wide range of industries and a preferred location for corporates in the banking and finance industry. The refurbished and newly renovated Singapore Land Tower was spearheaded by renowned Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, who received his profession's highest honour, the Pritzker Architecture Prize. The building's exterior most notable feature is a pristine curtain wall that sheaths the entire façade and a new roof crown that increases the building’s prominence in the city skyline. Taken together, these new features have elevated Singapore Land Tower’s standing as an urban landmark.


Singapore Land Tower is located near banking institutions, including HSBC, UOB, and the Bank of Singapore.
