5 Signs it's Time to Expand your Office Space
Is it really time to move office?
If you suddenly feel that you've outgrown your existing office and long for the need of more office space. Maybe you feel like your fully-staffed office is getting too over crowded, or your flourishing business has increasing needs and your existing office space no longer meets those demands.
A cramped office can damper productivity and lower staff morale, so if it's more space you're after, staying put is definately not an option!
Here are 5 signs you've outgrown your existing office space and it's time to expand to pastures new:
Your staff need to be physically comfortable and have enough space to carry out their jobs properly, if they're working in a cramped area, or practically on top of each other, it can lower productivity.
Your local Starbucks has become a meeting room
All your meeting rooms are constantly full and the thrill of sharing meeting rooms has simply worn off. Starbucks is your next favourable option and, whilst the coffee tastes great, it's not exactly an ideal place for those confidential meetings.
Staff breakout area is standing room only
Staff lunch breaks has become a "fight for the table" competition where staff can no longer relax at break time.
Filing Cabinets are collapsing
Your filing and storage units are not only overflowing, they're practically collapsing. Worse still, it takes forever to locate a file!
If your current office space is preventing you from carrying out your business activities to their full potential then moving office is your only option. Even a reconfiguration or refurbishment of your existing space won't fit that video conference screen in - no matter where you put it.
