CoWork@Gov, a WOG co-working initiative, has become a cornerstone of flexible work arrangements and is reshaping the work experience exclusively for public service officers. Launched in 2022, CoWork@Gov serves as a transitional area for meetings, offering an alternative and collaborative workspace for inter-agency meetings. Since then, CoWork@Gov has expanded to 29 sites from 20 agencies, with key partners like the Civil Service Club (CSC).


Operating within the CSC clubhouses at Tessensohn and Changi, these dedicated spaces offer a unique blend of premium amenities, strategic locations, and exclusivity tailored to the needs of public service officers. Let’s explore the features that make CoWork@Gov a distinctive co-working solution for those who serve the public.


CSC @ Tessensohn



Set within CSC @ Tessensohn clubhouse, CoWork@Gov provides an exclusive co-working space crafted to cater to the requirements of public service officers seeking a conducive working environment in the town area. Opened in September 2023 with 8 workstations, there has since been more than 500 bookings.


  • Exclusivity for Public Service Officers


CoWork@Gov is reserved exclusively for public service officers, creating a focused and collaborative environment tailored to the specific requirements of government professionals. Ms Lin Xinyi, who frequents CSC @ Tessensohn, highlights the initiatives’ role in supporting flexible work arrangements, allowing public officers to balance work commitments with family responsibilities effectively.


"I use the CoWork@Gov workspace at Tessensohn Clubhouse 2-3 times a week. Often times, my home might not be favourable as there could be noisy works in the estate. The CoWork@Gov workspace at CSC @ Tessensohn provides a conducive environment for me to work peacefully and comfortably. It is also convenient for me as I stay near to it," said Ms Lin, who oversees grants policy and strategies at Tote Board.

Tessensohn is the first CSC clubhouse to feature a CoWork@Gov space. Beyond traditional co-working features, members of CoWork@Gov at CSC @ Tessensohn have access to premium amenities within the clubhouse, fostering a work environment that prioritizes both productivity and well-being. As a CSC member, Ms Lin values the Clubhouse for its many amenities. She frequently uses the Olympic-sized pool with her family and participated in the Members' Day in October, which left a lasting impression on her child.


“Work-Play-Live is the way to go. With the addition of CoWork@Gov workspace, the clubhouse is truly a Work-Play-Live node” said Ms Lin, highlighting the benefits of CoWork@Gov for work-life harmony.

  • Exclusivity and Privacy


CoWork@Gov at CSC @ Changi maintains an exclusive environment solely for public service officers. This privacy allows officers to focus on their work in a supportive and secure atmosphere whilst immersed in the quiet seaside tranquillity. Mr Ye Yongfeng, Director of Public Sector Transformation from the Public Service Division, emphasizes the exclusivity of the spaces for public officers, creating a focused and collaborative environment.


“We consulted 5,000 officers on their Future Workplace aspirations, and a survey in May 2020 indicated that 16% of 14,000 respondents wished to work in government co-working spaces a few times a week,” said Mr Ye.


He added that CoWork@Gov continues to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of public officers and efforts are underway to enhance existing CoWork@Gov locations, providing more meeting and collaborative spaces to meet the growing demand.
