Recently, there has been much debate around how a workplace impacts an employee’s well-being. This has led to companies setting new standards and restructuring their employee benefits. As more business leaders take employees’ health and happiness into consideration while designing quality workplaces, offices’ have seen the elimination of “cube farms” and the sudden rise of activity-based workspaces and in-office wellness benefits. Thanks to recent enthusiasm towards reframing the development of employee needs, exploring new health trends, and better-emphasis on employee well-being, there has been a boost in collaborative, sociable and flexible workplaces. The Cook Medical Hong Kong office is no exception.
The Hong Kong office recognises that the one-size-fits-all design mould doesn’t work, and has gone on to foster an inviting workspace that empowers its employees to not only work, think, and rest distraction-free, but also work collaboratively through a variety of working spaces. This year, the office won Cook Medical its first WELL certification in the Asia-Pacific region. The award is a performance-based building standard that recognises a company’s commitment to advancing employees’ health and wellness through implementing tangible or intangible architectural moves based on the seven categories of building performance – Air, Water, Light, Nourishment, Fitness, Comfort, and Mind.
