Nu Skin Southeast Asia's innovative office design offers a fresh perspective on the needs of a modern workforce. The 5,590 sq ft space is designed to suit the modern hybrid workforce by intrinsically supporting flexibility in how people work. Designed with employee feedback on their working needs and preferences, the inclusive design is an inviting experience that supports the diverse ways Nu Skin employees like to work. The wide variety of work settings include a lifestyle café, hospitality-inspired lounge settings, private pods, phone booths as well as height-adjustable desks to configure sitting or standing workstations as desired. These activity-focused options encourage employees to change their seat throughout the day. The layout also blurs traditional barriers, offering almost complete openness from one end to another. Rooms are fitted in glass in line with Nu Skin’s transparent company culture. To ensure a balance of vibrancy and privacy in the open layout, a progressive zoning approach was adopted, with social and focus work areas delineated with very different materiality. A setting for team gatherings, the Nu Skin Café is infused with energy and warmth, while a subdued and predominantly white space takes up the opposite end of the office, creating a distraction-free and calm setting. Beyond the technology-enabled infrastructure, the hybrid workplace highlights a company culture that puts people first. It celebrates Nu Skin's dedication to wellness by providing plenty of natural light and views, while the co-working style shared work space breaks down hierarchy and makes it easy for both office workers and remote teams to get together to collaborate and ideate. The lifestyle-inspired spaces promote work-life balance, so employees can thrive.
