Signs it's Time to Move to Bigger Offices
If you feel like you've outgrown your present office and have workstations and staff seemingly bursting at the seams? Lucky you! It means your business is developing, flourishing and ready, perhaps, for a new office.
No one wants to work in a cramped and overcrowded office. It's no good for morale and can damper worker productivity, so if it's more space you're after, renewing your office lease may not even be an option.
Discover whether you're ready to make the leap and proceed to a bigger facility with these five indicators:
Cramped work stations
Your workers have to be physically comfortable with enough space to perform their workload sufficiently. If they are too cramped between workstations, it may lower output.
The local coffee house has turned into a spare conference room
All of your conference rooms are constantly occupied and the thrill of meeting at people's desks has simply worn off. Your local coffee house is the next favorable option and, although the coffee tastes great, it isn't exactly a perfect spot to host those private client meetings.
Staff breakout area is standing room only
Staff lunch breaks has turned into a "fight for a table" race where staff can no more relax at lunch time and choose to go elsewhere to eat their lunch and socialise with colleagues.
Storage units are falling apart
Your filing and storage models are not only seen overflowing, they are practically falling apart. Even worse, it takes forever to locate a file!
General Space Restrictions
If your current office space is preventing you against servicing clients properly then moving office is the only option. A reconfiguration of the existing space will not give you the additional space you require. And when you are wondering just how much office space you actually need, this FREE Office Space Calculator can help you calculate your size needs that will help you discover the perfect sized office for your forthcoming move.
