[Photos] How Pratt & Whitney's Singapore office gives wings to innovation

As a leader in the aerospace industry, Pratt & Whitney wanted the exterior and interior design as well as furnishings of its Singapore office to project a professional image.

With a legacy that stretches back to more than 90 years, innovation is regarded as the lifeblood of business success at Pratt & Whitney. Being at the forefront of a cutting-edge industry means it is critical for the organisation to constantly reinvent itself in order to stay ahead of the curve.

"At Pratt & Whitney, we recognise that work spaces shape our moods and thinking. After all, many of us spend a great deal of our day in the office," Teo Ee Mei, Pratt & Whitney’s regional head of HR, said.

As such, the firm sought to create a safe, functional, enjoyable, stimulating and productive environment for employees that would at the same time help to foster a culture of innovation at the workplace.

A piece of advice Teo would give companies that are planning on redecorating their offices is - an investment in the work environment has a positive impact on the company's long-term success.

"An investment into creating a comfortable, ergonomic and conducive work environment is essentially an investment into the workforce which will positively impact the long-term success of a company," she explains.

"We firmly believe that our people are the greatest assets for many organisations including Pratt & Whitney," Teo said.
