Lim Chin Peng, Senior Manager, Head, Strategy & Resource Management, from Certis CISCO Protection & Enforcement Services (CPE)
10 days after the official move to Certis Bukit Timah, we took the opportunity to speak to colleagues on their thoughts about their new workplace. Today, we sat down with Lim Chin Peng, Senior Manager, Head, Strategy & Resource Management, from Certis CISCO Protection & Enforcement Services (CPE) and here is what he shared about the transition from old to new!
What do you like about Certis Bukit Timah?
Our office is more spacious now. As the team expands, there are more areas for them to work including more meeting rooms. The environment is more conducive and we plan to keep it that way. What’s more, we have a dedicated canteen with a large seating area. There is also a nice coffee shop around the corner that serves great coffee.
You were in-charge of the move from Certis West Hub to Certis Bukit Timah for CPE. Tell us more about your experience.
Working together with Certis Academy, we were given a timeline to pack and move to the new venue. One of the things that needed to be up and running quickly was the Operations Room where we run and monitor our deployment. We had great support from Programme Management Office and Information Services who ensured that all the systems were running smoothly by the time we shifted over. The move was also a good bonding experience for the team as we worked in unison to pack everything.
What is one thing you noticed that makes a difference in location?
There is also a bus-stop directly outside Certis Bukit Timah which ferries commuters to Jurong East, Clementi and Bukit Batok. Previously, employees had to walk 15 minutes to get to the nearest bus stop or MRT station.
