Your business is growing or you are the master of a ‘great idea’ and ideas are currency of the future. All those years of hard work is finally paying off and you can foresee your business aligned with the future roadmap.
There are people who believe in your business and you have earned their trust, it is time for you to provide them a productive workspace for further growth.
There is no question of whether or not you will eventually think of moving your business to a larger office space. It is just a matter of “when”.
As with so many situations, the ideal timing to move would be different for every business. The questions below will help you get a clarity and we hope to remove the cloud of hesitance stopping you from taking your business to a larger and more productive office space.
Should I move my business into a fully-serviced large office space?
Always keep in mind that it involves investment, low productivity in the short term and extra monthly expenses in the long term. Before you begin thinking about a logistics, timetable and potential spaces, list out main reasons and the business road map. Make sure the list is strong enough, and then believe in the idea, take a leap of faith and start looking for fully-serviced large office space for rent.
Are you experiencing over-crowding?
Overcrowding is the most important sign that one needs a larger office. If you have more employees than you do space, it is time to consider moving. Does crowded conditions in the office affect the staff’s productivity? It might be time to move. Exciting opportunities and ideas are around all the time. You have got a great team of hard-working individuals who believe in it and if you are planning to hire more? It is time to move.
Do you have a Lack of Storage?
Storage can become a big issue for businesses as they outgrow their office space. As you take on more staff, filing cabinets and stock cupboards become more and more full, causing clutter around the office. A lack of storage can potentially mean lots of time wasted trying to find the right items or documents. Overflowing your storage can even be dangerous, posing potential trip hazards and safety risks.
Do you Have Meeting Room Clashes?
With hiring, more staff comes the need for more meetings, and therefore more meeting room bookings. If you have one meeting room for a 20-person or more team, chances are it is going to be in constant demand. These clashes can cause tension between staff members. In addition, as much as taking clients out for a coffee is a nice gesture, it is not a long-term solution to your lack of meeting room space. Consider the amount of people in your team and the need for additional meeting rooms; if you do not have space to build more in your existing office, it is a sign it is time to upgrade.
How happy is your team about Space?
Listen to your employees; if they are not satisfied about your office space, (whether it’s location, comfort or facilities) this may be a sign that they are not happy with their work environment. This can really affect their productivity levels. If a number of employees suggest unhappiness in their office space, take their feedback as a sign that it is time to consider an upgrade.
