Common Ground launches On-Demand, Pay-As-You-Go workplace services


KUALA LUMPUR, 6 April – Common Ground, Malaysia’s largest leading coworking space, has launched an on-demand, pay-as-you-go service called the Corporate Flex Solution that allows users to drop in to use their award-winning spaces and fully-equipped facilities for as low as RM2.50 per half-hourly blocks. The service piloted in February and gives users access to Common Ground’s fully-equipped workspaces, meeting rooms, and also photocopying, printing and courier services across all its retail outlets.

“As companies have started reopening up their businesses, we see a growing demand for a ‘third place’ to work,” says Yvonne Lee, Country Head of Malaysia for Common Ground. “Most people are familiar with the hybrid of working from home or working from the office but now, we’re introducing a new flexible space option for corporates and its employees that is neither home nor office. It’s the added option of working near home.”

How does Corporate Flex Solution work

“If you already have some commitments or an HQ, Corporate Flex gives your teams a ‘third workspace’ in addition to working from home,” Yvonne explains. “This workspace is available to them how, when and where they need it. They can access any of Common Ground’s locations that are nearest to them and in micro blocks of 30 minutes.”

As an employer, you’ll book a Corporate Flex Solution membership package for your staff, paying a base membership rate per staff. They’ll then have access to all Common Ground locations in Malaysia, Thailand and The Philippines, and can use the Common Ground app to find the location closest to them. They’ll be able to check in to whichever outlet they choose, using the facilities as and when they need to. You’ll pay only for the time and facilities that your team members use, whether they need to book a meeting room, host a series of calls or just pop in to use the printer. You can even put a cap on how much credit can be utilised per staff member per month.

The aim of Corporate Flex is to give great companies the best of in-person and remote work so that their people can enjoy their work, collaborate with their colleagues, and continue to perform at their peak,” Lee says.

Why it works so well

It’s the flexibility that’s so great. In Malaysia, there are 12 locations around the Klang Valley and Penang, and soon Johor, so that no matter where they are, users will have a great base to work from. With pricing as low as RM2.50 per 30-minute block and the ability to add or reduce staff memberships as the business needs, employers only pay for exactly what is used, without the traditional fixed overheads of a full-time office. Also, with no deposits, no long-term commitment and the ability to terminate anytime with credits fully refundable, companies can sign-up and plan accordingly with the demands of their own business.

Then there are the benefits Common Ground is famed for: the inspiring interior design and friendly customer service. You can make use of Common Ground’s great event spaces, cafes, membership benefits and private offices. And of course, the vibrant community of like-minded companies and collaborative opportunities.
