“The bosses only care about how this will affect their bottom line, and I have an argument for that. I can pinpoint to them how Colony can save money which is in terms of staff retention. How much money have they lost when their turnover rate is high?” he added.

The concept behind KL’s newest co-working serviced office entrant Colony is reflected in its design, as it offers various perks to its tenants, including a nap area for some quick shuteye, a massage room where a certified masseuse can be hired on an ad-hoc basis, an exclusive lounge with high ceilings and full length windows, and access to a rooftop gym and swimming pool where tenants can work out with a full view of the KL city skyline.

Audrey Ooi, the co-founder of Colony said “We have a strong belief that work doesn’t need to be all drudgery, that motivated employees perform best when they are happy. Work takes up at least 40 hours of our lives each week and it needs to feel great for us to do great. This is where Colony comes in.”

“I did a very employee-focused survey about where do people want to work. I did it on my blog, there were approximately 7,800 responses, and surprisingly, the top 3 areas people wanted to work in are Sunway, Mid Valley and KLCC.”

“This surprised, me, because these 3 areas are the most jammed areas in Klang Valley.”

As a co-working space, they are also trying to pioneer the serviced office concept. They’re estimating a 300-strong membership in their space that spans over 18,000 square feet.

Looking to create an ideal working environment, the facilities certainly do appear to live up to that. Let’s just say we’re suffering from major office envy right now.

“My competition is not really other co-working spaces, but rather offices in general,” said Tiah. “I’m trying to get companies that are occupying the buildings around here to move out into these kinds of spaces.”

“If there are more co-working spaces copying our plans, we would consider ourselves successful in achieving our goal,” he added.

“I came across the first co-working space in Jakarta and also discovered the how mature the industry was in Singapore. There was much potential for this industry to being the ‘Uber’ of working spaces,” Tiah added.
