Planning your office move
Make the most of your resources by planning your office move. Quality of the space, location, actual, future space requirements, budget and IT requirements need to be considered.
Ask yourself the following question: How important is the business image for your business? Different companies have different needs so you should ask yourself, what sort of image you want to project to your clients. Look for an office that has the potential to increase the motivation and productivity of your employees.
Consider the office layout as part of the planning process. A layout that is well designed should facilitate staff interaction. Serviced office providers offer furnished office space. Consider also your meeting room and storage requirements. You might need natural light for the office space but artificial lighting for storage space. Some office space providers have meeting rooms for hire by the hour, half day or by the day.
The right location for your office
An easy to reach location will be beneficial for you, your clients and employees. Consider how easy will be for them to get the office. Good transport links such as motor ways, train and tube stations will need to be considered.
Actual and future space requirements
It is important to consider the actual space that you need now but it is also important to consider the space you need in the future. The ideal service office space provider offers you flexibility to increase or down-size the space according to your needs. Long term lease agreements are less flexible.
Planning your budget perhaps is one of the most important points when moving office. Consider the cost and commitments of your office space. A long term lease usually has a commitment of several years and at the end of a lease considerable repairs and redecoration are usually needed. In contrast a licence agreement has a short term commitment with the additional benefit that it covers normal wear and tear.
Consider your communication and IT requirements. Different companies have different needs. Fast reliable internet access is a must for most companies.
Having a good understanding of your office space requirements will save you time and it will be a key to make the most of your budget. It also will make it easier to find the ideal space to your business needs.
