Medibank has announced it will relocate its headquarters from its current location in Melbourne's Docklands precinct just a short distance to the new Melbourne Quarter Tower situated at 699 Collins Street.
The company is the first major tenant of the new tower and it expects to move to the new 17,500sqm office space in October 2024.
"The office will be home to over 2,500 of our people and will be a place for concentration, collaboration and connection," said the company.
Medibank Group Executive for people and culture Kylie Bishop said the new office will be a place that encourages choice in how and where our people work, rather than a place you must come to because it’s Monday.
“We’re a healthcare company and we remain anchored in playing a role in supporting our people achieve good health and wellbeing, and this will be at the centre of all design elements.”
The space designed by Gray Puksand will include interconnecting floors with tiered voids, green spaces, natural light, a Sky Garden, a rooftop basketball court, external terraces and a wellness offering.
Gray Puksand Partner Heidi Smith said they will make the workplace an inspirational, health centred environment tailored to Medibank’s unique culture.
“We’re so excited to be working with Medibank to deliver a new workplace aligned to their future fit workplace strategy. We want to bring people back together, to connect and collaborate in a meaningful way. The future of work is here.”
Medibank Group Executive for technology and operations John Goodall said Future Fit gives Medibank people greater flexibility and the technology will seamlessly support connection and collaboration regardless of where someone chooses to work.
“Our technology will provide an equitable platform for all work methods, irrespective of location, culture, or personal circumstances,” said Mr Goodall.
