Inspired by Eastern and Western mix.
Few months after announcing its expansion in Singapore, Spencer Ogden, a global energy recruitment firm, is out once more to boost its Asian presence with the opening of its office in Hong Kong.
With its signature astro-turf floors and stylish conference rooms, Spencer Ogden Hong Kong aims to offer a therapeutic ambiance to its customers and employees by taking a detour from the traditional grey cubicles.
It features include organic round tables, brick walls, and industrial lighting. To provide a perfect balance between Asian and European concepts, Spencer Ogden Hong Kong’s design team boasts of a Chinese inspired Board Room and a London Private Club room with colonial Raffles vibe.
