Unveiling An Innovative Vision for the Future of Work in the Philippines
KMC Solutions, the largest provider of coworking spaces in the Philippines, has recently opened last April 27, 2023, at the SM North EDSA Tower 1 in Quezon City, with two more locations in Jollibee Tower, Pasig, and Lexmark, Cebu Business Park set to open in May. These new flexible workspaces offer state-of-the-art technology, top-notch business facilities, and fully equipped social amenities, making it easier and more sustainable for Filipino businesses to embrace hybrid work.
The launch of these new locations signifies KMC's commitment to supporting the evolving needs of modern companies and their employees, providing them with the necessary tools and resources to thrive in today's dynamic work environment.
SM North EDSA Tower 1 by KMC Solutions is a brand-new flexible office development that, is first of its kind in 2023, comes equipped with 553 seats spread across 2,449 sqm of floor space.
Conveniently located near transit hubs, pedestrian walkways, shopping malls, and restaurants, SM North EDSA Tower 1 offers professionals the ultimate flexibility and convenience. You'll have access to hot desks, retractable outlets, a fully-stocked pantry, a mind and body training room, shower facilities, and even an ice cream machine!
KMC Solutions understands the importance of a flexible and adaptable workspace catering to all professional needs. That's why SM North EDSA Tower 1 is designed to provide a truly flexible working environment, ensuring everyone can work comfortably and efficiently, regardless of their requirements.
KMC Solutions is expanding its footprint in the Philippines by introducing two new flexible office developments: the Jollibee Tower on Emerald Street in Ortigas and the PEZA-accredited Lexmark building in Cebu Business Park. The Jollibee Tower will provide 741 seats across 1,869 sqm of floor space, while the Lexmark building will offer a whopping 1,215 seats over 5,590 sqm.
With these new additions, KMC Solutions now boasts a total footprint of 27 buildings, amounting to an impressive 106,442 sqm. These new workspaces are perfectly positioned to cater to the increasing demand for flexible office solutions in the Philippines. KMC Solutions is thrilled to continue offering top-notch workspaces to businesses of all sizes.
KMC Solutions understand that a flexible workspace must balance privacy and openness, with social interaction as crucial as business functions. Thus, all office spaces are designed with human moments in mind. Each area is versatile, accommodating, and perfect for businesses and individuals seeking a flexible workspace solution.
Also, KMC Solutions' SM North EDSA Tower 1 is perfectly timed for the changing needs of employees. The COVID-19 pandemic has left people feeling isolated and disconnected, resulting in the need to rebuild social capital - a term defined by McKinsey as "the presence of networks, relationships, shared norms, and trust."
As a result, the office's role has shifted from a place of individual-focused work to a social hub that fosters collaboration, cooperation, and innovative thinking.
Moreover, KMC Solutions understand the changing dynamics of the modern office and have designed SM North EDSA Tower 1 to cater to the diverse needs of modern businesses and their employees. Their community-oriented approach and state-of-the-art facilities make the hub a networking, creativity, and growth space.
As the workforce evolves, hybrid office space is becoming increasingly popular.
It provides the perfect balance of in-person interaction and remote work flexibility, allowing for in-person mentoring, meetings, and team communication - particularly valued by the rising number of Gen Z employees. With hybrid office space, staff can enjoy the ease and efficiency of working from home while also benefiting from face-to-face interactions.
Gian Reyes, VP of Marketing at KMC Solutions, commented on the launch of their new hybrid office space solutions, stating that:
"For businesses in the Philippines, the future of work is clear. People work best when they have the flexibility to work how they are programmed to work, not how they are forced to by traditional workplace norms."
"The pandemic has given businesses in the Philippines the opportunity to rethink how they get the most out of their employees. Flexible working from a hybrid office is the future our businesses need.
"Our new office layouts are sensitive to the changing nature of work, with flexible solutions that allow for truly collaborative, meaningful professional engagement. We cater to individuals that need space to express themselves, employees who work best from the sofa, or people that need the structured surroundings of a more traditional office. Our flexible working philosophy means everyone can find the environment that drives their focus, creativity, and innovation.
"Hybrid working is emerging as the leading choice in the way we work. Companies that fragment their offices and offer multiple, smaller locations can offer the best of both working worlds and consequently attract and retain the best talent."
