[Photos] How Shopee's new office in Singapore creates a fresh, fun and vibrant workspace

A 3,000 sqft gym, a massage room, nap pods, co-working spaces and a central staircase that connects all six floors of the building - when the Human Resources Online team took the tour around Shopee's new regional HQ, these were some of the exciting features that greeted us.

In less than four years, e-commerce platform Shopee has grown from a 10-employee brand to one with over 1,000 employees today.

To mark this growth, the company recently moved into its own building, in line with its commitment to nurture tech talent, develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem, and create job opportunities as it expands in Southeast Asia.

On thisLim Teck Yong, Head of Regional Operations and People Team, Shopee, tells Human Resources Online: "As Shopee continues to experience exponential growth, it becomes increasingly important for us to brand ourselves as a unique entity.

"Previously, Shopee was located at Ascent in Science Park, with part of the team working out of Sea’s headquarters at Galaxis in One-North. As Shopee grew, there was an increasing need to house all employees in one building in order to facilitate cross-functional collaboration." (Sea Group is Shopee's parent company)
