As we enter into the endemic phase, more and more businesses and offices are opening up. While some people may feel hesitant to return due to concerns about sharing an enclosed air-conditioned office with others, some companies have already taken the initiative to make their work places safe in all aspects.
One such entity is WORQ, a community-centric co-working space founded by Stephanie Ping and Andrew Yeow in 2017. By putting themselves into the shoes of entrepreneurs, WORQ has built a rich ecosystem where people and the community prosper by working together through the flexible workspace solution.
“We have always prioritised the safety of our members, and in these uncertain times, it is no different. That’s why we are practising and enforcing best practices for social distancing and self-isolation amid Covid-19. As you know, safety guidelines — including those for our members and staff — may likely be revised as the situation changes, and you can count on us to keep up to date with the latest government guidelines,” stresses Ping and Yeow.
As a rule-of-thumb, all members, visitors and WORQ staff have to provide their Covid-19 vaccination digital certs to show their risk statuses and check in using MySejahtera before entering the premises. At the same time, everyone is required to observe the social distance of a one metre and to wear their face masks at all times.
Apart from that, all WORQ locations carry out frequent cleaning and sanitising of the common areas, tables and chairs, doorknobs and handles to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the space.
Today, WORQ has grown into one of the leading co-working spaces in the Klang Valley with a total managed office size of 100,000 sq ft, servicing businesses of various sizes. There are currently four locations – TTDI, Subang, Bangsar South and Mutiara Damansara; with ongoing plans to expand to another 1 million sq ft in five years.
Where all can breathe easy
To bring it up a notch, WORQ has also invested in air purifiers such as Panasonic’s Air-e Ceiling Mounted nanoe™ X Generator in all its outlets as they strongly believe that indoor air quality is critical for good health.
“We believe that customer service can make or break your business. Hence, we take great care of our community and go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. As WORQ was preparing to reopen the space to welcome our members, we were aware that many were concerned about the risk of the Covid-19 virus spreading through airborne particles and droplets. Following that, we spoke to various partners to see how we could provide a safe workspace for our members to get back to WORQ.
“Through the collaboration with Panasonic, WORQ has learned about the nanoe™ X technology. Not only is the technology able to inhibit 99.99% of the SARS-COV2 virus which causes Covid-19, but it is also Helps to deodorize and moistures the air in the room. This provides more reason for people to get back to work in a safe place where they can work productively with peace of mind,” says Ping and Yeow.
“WORQ has always been vigilant in maintaining strict standard operating procedures, and for that, we are eternally grateful! Furthermore, with the installation of Panasonic Air-e Ceiling Mounted Nanoe™ X Generator and Portable Nanoe™ X Generator in WORQ, my staff feels safe and confident coming back to work,” says one WORQ member, Jolene Chan, who is the human resource manager and administrator of Segnel Creative Sdn Bhd.
“Panasonic Nanoe-x technology is one of the very few technologies in the market tested and certified (by Texcell) to be able to inhibit 99.99% of the current novel coronavirus and as such - together with WORQ, we are happy to be able to provide a safer working environment for all Malaysians,” says Ichiro Suganuma, managing director of QAFL business promotion office, Panasonic Corporation.
