WORQ, a coworking space based in Mayalsia, has launched the its third location in KL Gateway in Bangsar South. This comes after its first two locations received positive feedback and success.
The unveiling was officiated by YB Fahmi Fadzil, MP of Lembah Pantai with the attendance of another special guest, Cradle Fund’s acting CEO, Razif Aziz.
The interior design of their new location resembles an industrial-like steampunk concept. WORQ’s CEO, Stephanie Ping explained, “This outlet is the first of its kind in such a design, including a number of steel and mirror features, much different from the other outlets.”
WORQ’s main focus is to reach out, support, and build a hyper-localized business community. Aiming to build a space where businesses and entrepreneurs congregate to connect, share resources, knowledge and collaborate, this is something they’ve put into practice with their 2 older spaces, and again now with their KL Gateway space.
Besides that, they’re also strong believers of work-life balance and have run (and are still running) initiatives to ensure that their members are encouraged to achieve it.
To them, it all boils down to having a good time while keeping fit.
“People normally feel that it’s difficult to practise work-life balance due to the limitation of time. However, we strongly believe that this can be overcome with better time management and the act of prioritising one’s day,” Stephanie said.
“We at WORQ believe that the right environment allows people to be more productive. This way, they achieve more or complete more work in a lesser amount of time. With that, they then have time to balance work and life.”
However, just because one has a work-life balance, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re immediately healthier. According to WORQ, fitness should be a lifestyle.
“People have difficulty getting into fitness as it’s not part of their lifestyle yet. Once it becomes a routine, it will be something that they will not be able to leave behind,” Stephanie stated.
“Also, we believe the environment one is associated with is a strong reason people either pick up or leave fitness. Thus, we at WORQ try our best to encourage fitness activities in our space itself.”
