The theme of the Business Awards Gala 2019 was Game Changers, which identified people and projects that are changing the game in their field. The high-profile event looks to bring together leading businesses and members of the Dutch community to celebrate their success.
In 2018, Arcadis Hong Kong underwent a major office relocation and workplace transformation program. At the heart of the move was sustainability, looking at three core pillars: a low impact workplace, people and well-being, and energy efficiency. Saving on electricity consumption, the launch of a paper reduction program, and engagement with local community were key factors for success.
Head of Hong Kong and Macau, Francis Au said: “This is the second acknowledgment for our office since we opened last year. It’s fantastic to have our hard work recognized, but it’s even more important to know that our core value of sustainability resonates with key organizations in the market and that we are doing everything we can to support our teams to develop.”
The office was designed to provide an engaging environment to encourage flexibility and greater collaboration in the way people work. It also looked at supporting the well-being of staff, which included wellness rooms, nursing mother facilities, recharge quiet zones and sit/stand desks to encourage more movement during the working day.
Chief Operating Officer for Arcadis Asia, Niek Niëns, commented on its overall impact on business operations: “The new office space was more than just a move; it was a catalyst for wider business transformation. It brought Arcadis Hong Kong’s business lines of Cost Management, Project and Program Management, Business Advisory and Design & Engineering, together, in a single location for the first time.”
