‘Come see us’: New Woodside boss throws open top floors

News Today || Headlines Today

Woodside’s interim chief executive Meg O’Neill has wasted no time demonstrating her attitude towards corporate culture within the WA oil and gas giant.

Just a day after Peter Coleman closed the book on his 10-year tenure at the helm and bid farewell to executives and staff, Ms O’Neill issued a memo to employees at Woodside’s HQ — known as Mia Yellagonga — encouraging them to access top floors of the CBD office tower usually reserved only for top brass.

She said the floors, which previously required special swipe card access, would now be open to all employees.

“We will be opening up access to the top floors of Yellagonga so you can come up and see us,” Ms O’Neill said in an internal memo on Tuesday and cited by The Australian.

When the 32-storey, high-tech HQ opened in late 2018, Woodside chief technology officer Shaun Gregory said the working environment was “literally designed from the ground up to enable collaboration”.

All floors are connected by an open internal staircase, and each floor has a colour scheme based on one of the six Noongar seasons.

The site also has a 400-seat auditorium, a fitness centre, storage for almost 700 bicycles, a baby grand piano, fireplaces, two swimming pools, private elevators and several executive floors.

Partners and children of the oil and gas company’s employees also have their own access cards to a family centre on level two, where they can meet for lunch or a game of table tennis.
