Bayer, an innovative life-sciences company, has opened a new state-of-the-art facility as its regional headquarters, Bayer Middle East, in Dubai Science Park.
The new workplace not only reaffirms the company’s commitment to Dubai as a regional hub for cultivating innovation, but also to its employees to mirror the collaborative and innovative culture encouraged at Bayer. The project commenced in November 2019 and was designed by specialized workplace strategists and interior design entity JLL.
Well-versed on the importance of providing collaborative and agile working spaces, Bayer was enthusiastic to implement the Activity Based Working (ABW) concept, as well as a workplace that better supports its working style. The approach uses non-assigned workstations and multiple areas for various activities to foster employee collaboration, learning, focused work, and socializing.
The layout, a total of 1,536 square meters divided into two floors, was designed based on neighborhoods or zones to equally provide support and collaborative spaces for all staff members, regardless of the location, facilitating their own choice to select where, when and how they work.
