The more income your business generates, the more you can invest back into it and make improvements. Things you could consider upgrading is your equipment, employing more staff, or improving your employee benefits. If your workload is increasing, new staff may be needed which could lead to you considering an office move. (It is a good idea to hire an interstate removalist, as this will make your move a lot easier.) An office move can be scary and cause a big upheaval, although it does have many benefits. Below are several reasons that moving offices could benefit your business.
Employ More Staff
How much space do you currently have in your office? Chances are as a small business you opted to move into the smallest offices that could cater for the number of employees you had at that time. As you grow, it is likely you will reach a stage where you are at your top capacity work-wise and the only way to get any bigger, is to employ new staff. When employing new people it may mean you have to move offices, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. New employees bring new ideas and can bring in more revenue, with this you can continue to expand your business and grow. Plus, moving to another property could be safer for them.
Move To A Prime Location
When you start a business you may not have been able to afford the office you wanted in that prime location. As you grow and bring in more money, an office move may be on the cards as the door opens to that location. Being based in a main location can show potential clients that you are doing well and can be trusted. It also means other people may come across you easier and want to work with you because you are situated in what they would class as a respectable area. Being in a prime location could also mean you attract higher-skilled employees when jobs become available.
Improve The Feel Of Your Office
What is your current office like? What do your employees honestly think of it? If your current office isn’t the most appealing property, then moving could help motivate your employees. It can create a positive vibe that helps improve productivity and happiness across the workforce. Employee happiness is one of the most important things in an office and by making them happier, you could reduce staff retention.
How much are you currently paying for your office? Have you compared it to the current market rate? It might be that you are overpaying and by moving you actually save money. It never hurts to look around, and by looking you might find a place better located, better looking, and as just mentioned save you some money. If you aren’t 100% sure about moving but can see the prices are cheaper elsewhere, then speak to your landlord and let them know about the competition, you never know they may reduce the rent for you.
