Vodafone completes its move to Sky Parks as offices inaugurated
Vodafone has completed its move to its head office at Sky Parks Business Centre following the official inauguration of the premises by President George Abela and Vodafone Malta chief executive Balesh Sharma on Tuesday.
With its open-plan environment, Vodafone’s new home offers team members from different departments a brand new corporate setting in which to work together. The office has been designed to enhance productivity, teamwork and improve organisational communication.
Customers were also kept in mind with different meeting room designs, including areas for lounge and business meetings and for casual meetings, state-of-the-art multimedia facilities and handset displays.
Technology was given paramount importance in the design – Vodafone made sure that it provided a wireless environment with no desk phones and wi-fi services available throughout including the terrace area. Sustainability was also at the top of the agenda: the A+ equipment, with the choice of lighting and light sensors incorporated to reduce utilities usage also played an important role in ensuring efficiency and sustainability.
Mr Sharma expressed his satisfaction at the staff’s enthusiasm to embrace change. He said the move helped the organisation introduce the sustainability measures it had always been aiming for.
“Today we have a paperless office, open plans and hot desking,” he said. “Our idea to have a fluid concept, an open-plan office with no boundaries between different teams is now a reality. Ultimately, we are one team working to address our customers’ needs and requirements and this is what we want to achieve.”
President Abela congratulated the entire Vodafone team, describing Vodafone as forward-looking and innovative, not only in technology but also in designing a new form of office organisation and employee accommodation.
“This modern centre provides a friendly environment that is comfortable to employees and conducive to better corporate communication and higher productivity. It is an indicator of offices of the future that already operate today.
“I believe one can look forward to further innovations by Vodafone that will keep the Maltese market up-to-date with the newest technology in the sector,” Dr Abela said.
