In celebration of the firm’s 77th anniversary, KPMG in Singapore recently unveiled its revamped staff lounge – the KPMG Clubhouse – as an emblem to redefine the future of work and enhance their staff experience through innovation and technology.
Prominently located on the first floor of City House in the Central Business District area and occupying over 5,000 square feet, the KPMG Clubhouse first opened its doors in 2011 to give KPMG staff a place that they could chill in, catch up with colleagues and friends, host client meetings and work in a comfortable and collaborative manner.
Taking into consideration how today’s employees, in particular, the millennial generation prefer to work, the firm undertook a four-month renovation of the KPMG Clubhouse, with the intent to redesign the facility such that it sits at the forefront of technology, functionality and design.
