Small Office Cramping Your Style? Maybe It’s Time to Move!

Small Office Cramping Your Style? Maybe It’s Time to Move!

On 22, May, 2017

Is your company thinking about making the move to a bigger location? Offices can feel a little small from time to time, but it can be hard to know exactly when to take the next step.  Moving is a very serious decision and choosing the right time is important. Let’s go over some different reasons your current spot may be too small and how to move forward.

Physical Considerations

You company started small and humble, but it is gaining momentum. You are adding more equipment, hiring more employees, and your first office can only take so much.

When you see this starting to happen, discuss potential options between the partners and management of your company. While you may be okay for a little bit, you will soon find it hard to have a specific room for meetings or organizing your employees by departments.

Besides your employees, you may notice you don’t have as much room for storage as you used to. This can create a crowded, more stressful feeling in your work environment. Outside the office, it is important to make sure that your parking is adequate, and that your employees don’t have an issue with parking.

Mental Considerations

Even if your company is in a physically adequate building with enough room for future hires, you may feel that your current location no longer describes who you are. It can be beneficial for your work morale if you move towards an area and building that more closely resemble the attitude of your company.

Moving to a more prominent location can also show potential clients and partners that you mean business. If you are making a decision to move for less physical reasons like these, it is even more important to make sure that the extra stress, money, and busyness that you take on will be worth it in the long run.

Making the Move

If your company makes the decision to move to a bigger, more prominent office, you need to have everyone on board. You don’t need to have an important figure in the business, or anyone for that matter, upset about making the move and bringing down morale. Explain to all parties involved why the decision was made and how it will better the company. Make sure you have important files in a secure spot and hire a trustworthy and recommended moving company.
