Having delivered 15+ Red Hat projects across EMEA and APAC, M Moser was appointed to spearhead Red Hat’s “Open Source Technology. Work Your Way” shared space philosophy in its Singapore office, which constituted a framework to guide how a space should be shaped, while providing the flexibility within so as to truly allow people to work the way that best suits them.
The primary goals were to:
1. Elevate performance to drive effectiveness
2. Live Red Hat’s mission to enhance the culture
3. Empower Associates to encourage engagement
Open, authentic, reliable and brave: these Red Hat brand attributes were used as guiding principles for the design.
By providing a diverse topography of flexible, distributed open, focus, and collaborative space types to enable and associate choice, the space delivers a complete employee brand experience and sets the foundation for innovation.
“Innovation is not something you can force. Innovation is something you enable by connecting different minds, different ideas, different thoughts. And that’s something that doesn’t happen in a cubicle.”
- Marsica Kooij Head of Talent Acquisition
M Moser embedded a global workplace strategist and global designer within the Red Hat Global Workplace Innovations team to oversee nine projects throughout the region, establishing a project delivery culture that understood the company’s objectives and cultural foundations while enabling continuous learning of the Red Hat way.
“Working in tandem with a professional company, such as M Moser, enables us to operate together truly in partnership, so even in the early stages of a project we don’t have to introduce the culture, the standards, when you provide a test fit, it is much closer to a design solution because you already know what does or doesn’t work for Red Hat.”
- Neil Flint, Director of Global Workplace Solutions
As a company, Red Hat truly believes in its values as an open collaborative company. “Egalitarian principles and meritocracy are part of the firm’s foundations” said Su-San Tan, M Moser’s Red Hat Client Program Lead and Workplace Change Strategist, “Throughout the various engagements with Red Hatters, we realised they truly identified with the company culture. If you can define your culture tightly, while resonating deeply with a very diverse group of employees, then you have a solid foundation to effect change and disruption.”
