8 Reasons to Relocate your Business
As daunting as it may seem, relocating can offer many benefits for your business. Still not convinced? Here are the top eight reasons why you should seriously consider an office relocation:
1. Cut Costs
Many businesses choose to relocate in order to reduce costs; whether it’s rental or operational costs, the right new office can cause you to operate more efficiently with lower rental outgoings each month.
2. Helps to Maximise Space
If you’ve run out of space in your existing office, looking for new space will force you to think about your space requirements and make best use of it through effective space layout. Use the Office Space Calculator to work out how much space you are going to need.
3. Improve Morale
There’s nothing more of an employee morale booster than a new environment. A change in workplace, if handled correctly, can have a positive impact on the efficiency of your workers and their attitude to work.
4. New Networking Opportunities
A new premises means new neighbours, and this could open up a whole new world of networking opportunities that draw in new clients, new partners and new business opportunities.
5. Attract New Talent
Potential new candidates can be more attracted to your new location, particularly if it’s more central, has better facilities or is closer to home for them.
6. Re-think Processes
A new environment forces you to re-think processes and the way your teams communicate. Remember that an office move is a fresh start and it’s an ideal time to review everything and put in place process enhancements that will improve your business performance.
7. Enhance your Image
A plush new office can impress clients and improve your company’s image. And you don’t have to chose a Grade A space to make a difference. A little thought to the layout and design of your new office can enhance your image and improve your reputation.
8. Go Green
There’s no better time to implement a new corporate environmental policy by introducing recycling areas in the new office to encourage all your staff to do their bit for the environment.
If you are considering relocating, take the time to weigh up your options and be sure to factor in all these considerations before settling on a location and choosing the office space.
