Prudential has officially opened it’s brand spanking new corporate head office, Menara Prudential, located at the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX), Kuala Lumpur.
Though the 27-storey tower might not be the biggest, tallest, shiniest building in the heart of KL, it is definitely a honeypot that will make anyone NOT working there green with envy!
The menara houses all four of Prudentialâ€™s business units in Malaysia, Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad, Prudential BSN Takaful Berhad, Eastspring Investments Berhad and Prudential Services Asia, with over 2,000 employees nesting under one roof.
So what’s so special about Prudentialâ€™s new office?
1. Itâ€™s a modern, GREEN architecture
Besides keeping up to date with the latest and most modern of architectural designs, Menara Prudential also holds several features with the good of the environment in mind.
The building is constructed with materials to reduce the heat within the structure and a smart building management system that optimizes the lighting and temperature within the building.
The menara also has its own rainwater collection and recycling system that makes use of Malaysiaâ€™s famous downpours to supply the building with sustainable H20!
2. 360Â° LED display up top
If youâ€™re ever stuck in a jam on your way to Bukit Bintang, look up!
The buildingâ€™s 360Â° LED screen display, a first of its kind in the country, wraps around the very top of the tower, giving the building a signature glow in the KL cityscape
3. Cool and convenient workplace
Out with the dull and dreary cubicles, and in with the gorgeous, ergonomic designs!
Each floor of the office building is an ode to Malaysiaâ€™s vibrancy and showcases design themes related to nature, arts, culture and the hip and trendy urban scene.
Insuring that 9 to 5 seems less torture and more of a scenic journey through the countryâ€™s rich diverse landscapes and history.
Menara Prudential also features more than 10 different types of workplace settings suited for every single working style!
Employees are free to move around and grind about their day at a variety of workspace options; from the standard work desk, to open collaboration spaces with comfy sofas, to secluded meeting rooms and focus pods.
The office even has these awesome high-tech height-adjustable desks!
Besides having lots of places to work and chill, the office space also holds a first-aid room complete with its own hospital bed, private maternity facilities for mothers to go about their business, and each employee also gets their very own locker.
And we havenâ€™t even gotten to the best part!
4. The pantry from heaven
Thereâ€™s definitely no need to make a quick coffee run in this office!
Integrating work, play and makan-makan, Menara Prudentiaâ€™s indoor work cafes are definitely the best boast of the building.
Each floor of the office spaces has its very own uniquely themed warungs and mamak stall inspired cafes, designed to promote employee engagement and provide a very cool space for workers to calmly get things done or just kick back and chit-chat.
5. More to comeâ€¦
Making an effort to provide employees with a healthy work-life balance, Menara Prudential will also house its very own childcare centre!
Employees can soon relieve some of their parental anxieties as their kids would be safely and happily playing nearby.
6. One-stop Prudential store
And did we mention that all of Prudentialâ€™s business units in Malaysia would be in this one spot?
Prudentialâ€™s three business units; Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad, Prudential BSN Takaful Berhad and Eastspring Investments Berhad are now operating under one branch at Menara Prudential.
Customers can now simply walk-in and get their businesses done all in one convenient location!
