Nestled amid lush greenery, national heritage colonial bungalows and winding roads in the northern part of Singapore, is GSK Asia House. Home to around 800 employees, this is the new regional headquarters for our Pharmaceutical, Vaccines and Consumer Healthcare businesses in Asia.
Taking the ‘inside out’
The purpose built six-storey building has been designed to foster better connectivity, collaboration, leadership and talent development across the region for GSK. Having operated in Asia for over 50 years and recognising the importance of the region to our global business, the intent was to create an environment for nurturing an agile, high performing organisation that could anticipate and meet the changing healthcare needs of patients and consumers in Asia.
Conceptualised from the ‘inside out’, the building places people at the heart of the design. The ground floor is open to public access, facilitating seamless integration with the landscape and local community and serving as an open invitation for the public to engage with us.
GSK’s first shopper science lab in Asia, situated on the ground floor, will also enable us to uncover unique insights about consumers’ preferences in emerging markets.
Equipped with the latest technology and incorporating SMART design elements, GSK Asia House caters to the needs of our highly mobile workforce. There are a variety of reconfigurable work spaces, meeting venues and interaction spaces to encourage flexibility, collaboration and movement among the teams. The open plan work areas, along with an employee café, gym and various recreational spaces, will also enable more social activity on campus.
Deepening our roots
Aside from investing in a new regional headquarters in Singapore, operating multiple manufacturing sites and R&D facilities across the region, we need to continue to invest in our people. A robust, culturally aware and dynamic talent development strategy is a key part of our strategy to create a sustainable future for GSK in Asia
A Global Learning Centre and a dedicated Learning and Development team has been established at the GSK Asia House and will focus on delivering tailored training and development programmes for employees in Asia.
Our success in Asia has always been driven by our people and the communities we serve. GSK Asia House will be the foundation upon which we build our future ambitions. Always in Asia, for Asia.
