The new 5,000 sq ft space, located in Tanjong Pagar, can accommodate up to 150 employees and is designed for hot desking.
Global communications agency Redhill has unveiled its new global headquarters in Singapore’s historic district of Tanjong Pagar on 27 September 2022.
The new 5,000 sq ft space can accommodate up to 150 employees and is designed for hot desking, given the agency's view on flexible work arrangements. Open plan seating and versatile discussion spaces in the primary work zone aim to facilitate collaboration and cooperation, while meeting rooms and quiet zones will enable team discussions and focused work.
Meanwhile, comfortable lounges and a spacious pantry area provide spaces for people to gather and recharge, helping to foster a sense of community while preserving individual wellbeing.
The launch was attended by 200 guests, including guest of honour, Shawn Huang, Member of Parliament (Jurong GRC) and Director (Enterprise Development) at Temasek International.
Speaking at the opening, Huang commented: “Redhill is a shining example of the type of business that we hope to nurture in Singapore – one that is proudly locally founded but strives towards global ambitions. With its business firmly anchored in Singapore, Redhill has relentlessly pursued its mission to tell stories to audiences across the world, yet it has never lost sight of its intrinsic Asian and Singaporean identity.”
As Redhill’s largest office premises to date, this new global headquarters reflects the agency’s growth over the eight years since its inception. The homegrown agency opened its first office in Singapore in 2014 with just two employees. Today, Redhill has over 180 employees globally, with more than half of its employees based in Singapore.
Beyond Singapore, Redhill has established a footprint in 19 markets, including South Korea, Japan, Australia, and most of Southeast Asia. To cater for its diverse workforce, Redhill has implemented initiatives promoting employee wellbeing and welfare, as well as encouraging upskilling and career growth. These include hosting mental health discussions and trainings, organising leadership talks and skill workshops, and building an accessible depository for training resources.
In 2021, Redhill launched its first diversity and inclusion initiative, which involved an overhaul of its salary structure to focus on pay parity based on skill and experience instead of an individual’s last drawn salary. These efforts led to the agency’s inclusion in the Adland Diversity and Inclusion Index 2021.
Jacob Puthenparambil, Founder and CEO of Redhill added: “This new space better accommodates our rapidly growing team and enables us to hire additional talent to service our growing client base and to provide industry-leading support. Our new office was designed to inspire collaboration, innovation, and team spirit– acting as our base of operations as we further our mission to tell authentic stories across the world."
