Located at Menara Symphony Petaling Jaya, the renovated office was designed to serve as a hub to cultivate company culture and encourage best practice sharing for over 600 Malaysian colleagues from Otis and its subsidiary brand, Sigma.
Along with a new, modern reception area, the office provides a variety of different workplaces including workstations with monitors, long tables and shared hotdesking tables, to promote agility and support greater colleague interactions and collaboration.

"The varied use of our office space reinforces Otis’ strong commitment to create a diverse and inclusive working environment for our colleagues," said Otis Southeast Asia Managing Director Grant Mooney.

We believe this initiative will promote greater productivity and work-life satisfaction."
