Whether you're just starting out or your company has outgrown it's space, a new office search can be daunting. Here are a few things to keep in mind when searching for your new office.
Ease of Commute
It is important to consider the location of your new office. Is it near major roads? Is there public transportation nearby? Being close to major roads can provide a more direct route to work and cut down on employees drive time and therefore, stress. Being close to public transportation is also important so that employees can have a variety of travel options. These are also great features for clients.
We spend a lot of time at the office, so having amenities can be important. Make sure you are close to dining areas that would be great for client meetings or employee lunch breaks. Being close to shopping, banks, and daycare can also be important so employees can run errands after work.
Amenities inside your office are a great selling point as well! Some offices are adding pet friendly spaces, fitness centers, and game rooms. The options are endless.
Know Your Company Culture
Find an office with a space that can work for your culture. Is the space set up more for an open concept or could cubicles work? While a lot of places value big open spaces, make sure it's right for your company before making the move.
Go With The Pros
Your office is important so you'll want to make sure everything is just right so that you aren't moving again. Hire a real estate professional to find the perfect location. After finding your space hire someone to help you plan and design your space to meet all of your company requirements.
