Whether you want to entice employees back into the office or are looking for ways to save money, you may notice several signs it’s time to move into a new office. If your lease is up soon, you may consider shopping around different office spaces, but don’t jump the gun. Here are some of the main reasons you should consider changing office locations.
1. Team Growth
As your company grows, so does the team that supports it. You need ample space to ensure all your employees can complete their jobs. Some employees need offices, while others will collaborate in open-concept spaces. As your company grows, you’ll need more space to take on projects that further develop your various revenue paths. A new office space can accommodate all your needs.
2. Department Organization
Small offices don’t allow for department organization. You might sit next to people you don’t work with in a small office. In some cases, it can create an intimate environment where everyone knows each other. In other cases, it can be distracting. Some departments are loud and may talk on the phone all day, while others require silence to complete their tasks. The right office space will boost productivity.
3. Cultural Shift
The workplace is constantly changing. The best way to keep your company afloat is to evolve with the changes. For instance, many companies are allowing remote work, which changes office arrangements. Further, if employees are going to come into an office, many are looking for stimulating environments to return to.
4. Better Location
Your business may be near your home, but is it near top talent? Consider whether your office’s location is holding you back from attracting the best employees or clients. Moving to a region or city could give you the boost you need to take your business to the next level.
5. Save Money
You should move to a different office if you find one that can save you money. It may not be worth staying in an outdated office space that requires regular maintenance if you can move to a newer and nicer one. If your lease is about to expire, start looking around at other options.
If you’re seeing the signs it’s time to move into a new office—too little space, too little stimulation, or too little available talent—your next steps are to find a new place that fits your company better and start the moving transition.
