10 Oct PepsiCo’s new agile HQ is no fizzer
In December 2016, PepsiCo Australia and New Zealand completed the transformation of its corporate HQ in Chatswood, Sydney. Its traditional, siloed office was canned and replaced with a more agile working environment. The transformation at the multinational food, snack and beverage company was led by CIO Ursula Phillips. Phillips and her team have created a truly mobile workforce. All 300 staff members, including the CEO, received a laptop, mobile phone and Bluetooth earpiece. Office walls were replaced with open workspaces or ‘neighbourhoods’ where staff can collaborate at hot desks, in meeting rooms, chat spaces, and purpose-built video conference rooms.
PepsiCo’s Australia and New Zealand CIO, Ursula Phillips is enjoying the sweet success of a new office transformation. Since the transition in December, PepsiCo has seen a 12 per cent increase in employee engagement scores
