Relocating offices is a significant event for you and your business. An experienced office relocation company will ensure the move is managed in a professional, timely and collaborative manner. Working with an experienced partner means that a range of logistical challenges are identified and managed by professionals who have experience of assisting people across a range of business relocations and moves. This means that you have time to concentrate on running your business whilst we take care of the rest.
A well-planned office relocation can be an opportunity to improve productivity, morale and efficiency within your organisation. Relocating to a new office space allows companies to make better use of existing resources by finding more suitable accommodation for their staff and equipment, thus reducing overheads.
As you expand and diversify your business location is an important part of your growth. It helps with your overall strategy and in return, your recruitment and retention of employees and customers.
Relocating your offices to better commuting locations, amenities and communities can improve your business going forward. Here are some benefits of relocating offices:
Improved employee satisfaction – Employees want to feel like they’re part of something bigger than themselves. They want to be able to feel connected with their colleagues and feel like an important part of the team. If you move into a new office space that has better amenities, more room or even just a nicer decor it will make them feel more connected and motivated. This can lead to higher staff productivity, less employee turnover and happier employees overall!
Flexibility – Office space is one of the biggest expenses for any company so it’s important for companies to make sure they have enough space for future growth or expansion plans. A lot of companies find themselves needing additional office space within 5 years after moving into a new building because they outgrow their current space quickly
New office environments can be a great way to boost productivity and help your business achieve its goals.
Benefits of relocating offices for your business
Embracing new ways of working and adapting your office space to align with your culture and brand can help benefit the growth of your business and attract new talent to your business. A snazzy new fit-out of your offices where your people were asked about what changes they would like to see in their office will bring your business together, making the people feel valued and attracting them to the office, not just somewhere they sit and work from.
A new office environment that is better suited to your company’s needs can help motivate and increase productivity levels for your business. This can be achieved through improved facilities such as increased storage space or increased power points for charging devices, more comfortable seating arrangements and even better lighting so employees can focus on their tasks at hand without being distracted by glare from overhead lights or reflections from windows. These small changes to how you run things can make a big difference in terms of how productive people are at work – they become happier
When you organise an office relocation, there is a lot to think about. It’s a good time to review your financial outgoings and services aligned with running your offices. Undiscovered Workplace created an office move toolkit to give businesses a starting point and ideas on costs they may need to include, this can also help when businesses are evaluating financial outgoings.
Relocating offices gives you a chance to review the actual space you need. After the review of your space, you may find a better way of utilizing the space which can lead to downsizing office space or keeping the same size space but changing the working areas to better suit how your people work and collaborate when in the office.
If your company is expanding or looking for new locations for its operations, consider this move as an opportunity to save money. If you are moving from a smaller office into a larger one, there will be less rent, or lease expense involved in the new location.
When moving offices, it’s important that you consider all aspects of your business, including how many employees you have now and how many more employees will be added in the future. By knowing this information ahead of time, you can determine what type of office space will best suit your needs.
