The grass always seems greener across your neighbour’s fence! You will always want change and difference for yourself and of course for your Organization. So if you are planning on relocating your organization there may be a few things that you may want to consider before actually relocating. The first and foremost question that you should ask yourself is if the relocation is absolutely necessary? If you answer no to this question then you must not relocate immediately. But if you answer yes to that question, then read below some tips that will help you out!
The relocating spot should be easily accessible to all stakeholder parties. Employees will be travelling to the place of work daily. So unless, they find it easy to travel and access they start to look for new job opportunities. As traveling play a major in an employee leaving a workplace. Other stake holder parties like the suppliers and buyers should also be able to access the organization. If suppliers are unable to supply the products easily to your workplace they may consider replacing you. Also customers tend to be very demanding. And unless they find your new location easy to access they are sure to go to a substitute since most often there are many substitutes out there!
Safety is a top concern when it comes to relocating your office. You should always consider the vicinity of the new place before going ahead. It is best if you could locate in an industrialized location where there will be firms such as yourself. You can consider relocating to a best serviced office as it will give you the great of option of having all the necessary furniture and may also have a common reception area for all the organizations within the building. Safety will not be a concern as they will also have a security system in place.
Relocating to the new place should be affordable. Getting a place that will be fully occupied only by your office might be quite expensive. It would be a cost you wouldn’t want to bear unnecessarily. You can instead go for a virtual office admiralty that are buildings that give out their floors for other companies. These have the furniture already included in them in most cases and also provide common services such as reception and security guards.
The building you are locating to should also be one that allows for expansion of your organization. If not large expansion at least a future expansion space for a minimum of 10new roles for new employees. If you are a large scale organization then this number would be about a minimum of 50 new roles for new employees! Expansion matters and you will be glad in future when you have enough space to accommodate an expansion!
