If you think it may be time for an office move, it is important to ensure that everything is planned and executed correctly. The first step in any commercial relocation is to make sure that you know why you need to move and how this is going to be achieved. Once you are clear about your reasons for moving, you can start to make firm plans.
Does your company need to expand or is there a requirement to downsize? Could it be that you need to reduce your expenditure? Is your current location working for your business? All these reasons could lead to you to consider looking for new premises. Sit down and work out in advance whether moving is practical and whether your company will benefit; for example, a company with 10 employees working in two small offices should probably be looking for larger premises, as this situation could be interfering with productivity and resulting in a tense atmosphere among workers.
Once you have worked out what your company needs from the office move, it will be far easier for you to work out what needs to be done next. Your preparation will help you to decide on the location of your new office, the size of the office and any changes that you need to make to the structure of the company. Once this has been done you can easily explain to employees, business partners, suppliers and clients why the move is important and show them that it is a positive thing for the future of the company.
