KUCHING: Professionals from various corporate companies in or outside Kuching should adapt to the co-working culture and network by working in a shared space.
Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng said that it is no secret that most companies worldwide these days enjoy and actually benefit from working in a co-working space.
“Thus, I feel it is great that more co-working spaces are coming up in Kuching, tapping on the needs of most entrepreneurs, start-ups and corporates.
“I strongly believe that co-working culture is healthy, which will result in more collaborations and a true spirit of working with one another,” he said.
He said this while officiating at the launching of The Grounds which is housed in The Hills here, yesterday.
Datuk Wee further stated that the venue will encourage professionals from various corporate companies to appreciate the culture of co-working and gather different skills and knowledge to complement each other.
“The Grounds also provides professionals with the opportunity to network with potential collaborators and partners to excel further in their businesses.
“We definitely have enough malls in Kuching and it is great to see the transformation of The Hills into a lifestyle community hub,” he continued.
The Grounds is a Kuching-based latest co-working space for communities which will house over 200 members — employees from various corporate companies, lawyers, interior designers, retailers, financiers and more.
It features lounges, conference rooms and sleek offices. The membership opportunities include internet access, receptionist and cleaning services, own furniture and access to meeting rooms. Members will have options of having a fixed desk or private office.
