Smart Work Centres officially open in Public Libraries
Three Smart Work Centres located in public libraries across Singapore opened today, offering workers the flexibility of working closer to their homes.
The centres at Jurong Regional Library, Geylang East Public Library and Toa Payoh Public Library are operated by global flexible workspace provider Regus in collaboration with the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and National Library Board.
They offer a professional work environment and are equipped with typical office facilities such as secure Wi-Fi, printing, copying and video-conferencing services.
A statement from Regus, IDA and the NLB, says employers who offer flexible work arrangements would be able to tap on a more diverse recruitment pool such as homemakers, which may be especially beneficial in light of the tight labour market.
Companies can also benefit from more flexibility in workspace planning and be more agile in matching real estate needs to dynamic economic conditions.
Individuals can choose to access the Centres' pay per use facilities, ranging by the hour to a monthly membership offering that provides unlimited access, without the need to commit to traditional long term lease for workspaces.
