Corporate Flex Solution

The most flexible working solution yet

It’s like #wfh, but so much better


Say what you will about the events of 2020 (and trust us, there is much to be said), they’ve shown the world that flexible working is not just something nice to think about for the future. It’s a must, for right now. All over the world, workers have shown that when rigid office hours and tiresome commutes are done away with, they can be just as productive, if not more.

But now as we head into the second year of #WFH, it’s pretty clear that improvements can be made. Working from home can be great – but it can also be really tough. You may have teenagers you need to shepherd through Zoom classes, toddlers who refuse to nap, neighbours who like a thumping bassline, or wifi that refuses to cooperate. Maybe you’re just burnt out from pacing the same square footage seven days a week, and uninspired from looking at the same four walls over and over again. As a boss, maybe you’re fielding complaints from your team about poor wifi connections, or a lack of privacy from which to conduct client calls (ever locked yourself in the car just to get some quiet time?). Maybe they just really want to be able to use the office printer again. How do you balance the safety of your team members against their productivity? And if you’re not prepared to fully reopen your office space, what can you do to provide the resources and space they need?

We’ve got an idea

“More than ever, flexibility is something all businesses are prioritising right now,” Yvonne Lee, Country Head for Malaysia says. “At the same time, businesses are also focused on retaining, nurturing and engaging with top talent.”


At Common Ground we’ve always been champions of modern, flexible working solutions to suit your working style, and our newest offering has been designed with current events in mind. Corporate Flex is a flexible workspace solution that allows you to make the most of our award-winning spaces and amenities, and only paying for what you need, right down to the minute.


How does Corporate Flex work?

“If you already have some commitments or a HQ, Corporate Flex gives your teams a ‘third workspace’ in addition to working from home,” Yvonne explains. “This workspace is available to them how, when and where they need it. They can access any of Common Ground’s locations that is nearest to them and in micro blocks of mere minutes.”

As an employer, you’ll book a Corporate Flex membership package for your staff, paying a base membership rate per staff. They’ll then have access to all Common Ground locations in Malaysia, Thailand and The Philippines, and can use the Common Ground app to find the location closest to them. They’ll be able to check in to whichever outlet they choose, using the facilities as and when they need to. You’ll pay only for the time and facilities that your team members use, whether they need to book a meeting room, host a series of calls or just pop in to use the printer. You can even put a cap on how much credit can be utilised per staff member per month.

“The aim of Corporate Flex is to give great companies the best of in-person and remote work so that their people can enjoy their work, collaborate with their colleagues, and continue to perform at their peak,” Yvonne says.


Who is it for?

“If you’re trying to balance your people strategy with your office leasing strategy, here’s where Corporate Flex bridges that,” Yvonne says. “Working from home may have worked for some people but learning from the majority of our current members, it is still not the ideal set-up.”

Corporate Flex will work for your company if your staff predominantly work from home, but still need a conducive and productive workspace to collaborate. Maybe you’re looking to downsize on your permanent office space to save on fixed costs during these uncertain times; maybe you’re keen to introduce more flexibility to keep your staff engaged and motivated. Corporate Flex gives you the bandwidth to allow your staff that flexibility, while also providing a structured and conducive workspace for them to use and when they need it.

Why it works so well

It’s the flexibility that’s so great – in Malaysia, there are 12 locations around the Klang Valley and Penang, and soon Johor, so that no matter where they are, your staff will have a great base to work from. With pricing as low as RM2.50 per 30-minute block and the ability to add or reduce staff memberships as you need, you’ll only pay for exactly what you use, without the traditional fixed overheads of a full-time office.


Then there’s the benefits Common Ground is famed for: the inspiring interior design and friendly customer service. You can make use of Common Ground’s great event spaces, cafes, membership benefits and private offices. And of course, the vibrant community of like-minded companies and collaborative opportunities.

It’s the flexible working solution you’ve been waiting for.
