Colliers International’s Project Services team deliver award-winning new MYOB headquarters.
The new MYOB headquarters in Melbourne have won the Best Workplace award at this year’s PCA Innovation and Excellence awards, announced at The Star in Sydney.
The project, which was delivered by Colliers International’s Project Services team, was completed in 2014 and provides the leading accounting solutions provider in Australia, MYOB, with a fun, innovative and collaborative workplace, in line with the corporate values.
“MYOB sought our workplace design and project management skills to deliver a new workplace that aligned with their corporate culture,” said Doug Henry, Head of Corporate Solutions at Colliers International. “We were thrilled to work with them to create a forward thinking workplace that encouraged collaboration, supported their agile workstyle, was innovative and above all, met their long-term business goals."
Located on top of The Glen shopping centre in Glen Waverley, the 4,900sq m workspace is the largest single-floor workspace in suburban Melbourne. Reflecting the evolution of the MYOB brand, the space draws on the basis of “fun” as defined by MYOB’s employees.
Design principles used to plan cities were employed to create several ‘neighbourhood’ zones to drive interaction between staff and create variations to the space across the large floorplan. Each zone has a different theme – ranging from the festival zone, to the music studio, the campsite, the laneway and the playing field.
As a market leader, MYOB provides superior, innovative products and services that make business life easier for all types of businesses, from micro to large. It understands its external success is also a reflection of the positive workplace and culture embedded.
“We were looking for a workspace that inspired team collaboration, supported the transformation in our business and enabled us to deliver great solutions for our clients,” said Tim Reed, MYOB CEO. “I am proud of what has been accomplished in our workspace, making it a great place for people to enjoy, which is reflected in our slogan, Love Your Work.
“We’re thrilled to have won this award which recognises the insightful planning and expert execution that was involved in delivering such a successful work environment."
