GTBC Campus - Connected, Flexible, Fluid, and Cross-Functional

On September 27, GTBC Director Mike Brielmaier was joined by Jodi Dudley, Director Ford Business Solutions and Jose Maria Villarreal, Director Human Resources, IMG, FSAO & FBS to celebrate the opening of the new facilities.

Nearly 8,000 employees were entertained by popular comedian Danish Sait, followed by a laser light show, drums and a live musical set from renowned entertainer Benny Dayal. The highlight of the event was the laser show that showcased the new design philosophy and corporate culture change, which was done keeping in mind Ford’s core master planning design principles – of integration, interaction and co-location.

Gangapriya Chakraverti, Director Human Resources, GTBC, commented that the new facility moved employees from enclosed cubicles to open linear seating and offers a flexible workspace with convenient amenities for employees.

“The new workspace has varied settings allowing individuals to choose what works best for them,” she said. “With individual seating areas, collaborative meeting spaces to spaces that can allow for impromptu gathering of large teams, the new workspace offers many options.”

As part of redesigning the company’s global workspaces, the Global Technology and Business Center in Chennai is the first campus to fully implement Ford’s new design philosophy, according to Ford Land Chairman and CEO David Dubensky.

“We look at the workplaces through the lens of our employees – and we’re tailoring execution to the unique needs of each region,” he said.
