Does your business or organisation need somewhere new to work?
Scaling up is always exciting, but there are so many factors to consider and people to please, it can feel overwhelming. Finding a new space is never an easy task, which is why we have put together this handy guide to simplify the process for you.
Find a new workspace in 5 easy steps:
Write down why you want to move
There are many possible reasons why you might want to move to a new office or workspace. It might be that you need to be located somewhere more accessible, you need to cut down on costs, or that you need somewhere bigger to scale up.
Here are a few common reasons why you might want to move:
- Your company or organisation has increased in size
- Your present location is inconvenient
- Your current surroundings are hampering creativity/productivity
- You are not getting value for money at your current location
- Your business needs might have changed
Start off the search for a new place to work by making a list of all the reasons why you want to move.
Write down what you want from your new location
Following on from step 1, what is it that you like from a new office/work place? What are yours and your teams criteria? Include your employees in this step as it needs to be somewhere pleasant and suitable for them too!
Here are a few things that you might want to consider, for your ideal new work space:
- Where would you like to be located?
- Where would you not like to be located?
- How big does the space need to be?
- What facilities do you want inside the building?
- What facilities would you like nearby (shops, cafes, bars, restaurants)?
Agree a budget
If you are going to be renting, do you have an idea of what your maximum budget would be for rent? Take into account all of your business costs, to work out the maximum and minimum you could afford each month.
Once you and your team have discussed & confirmed all of the above, it is time to begin your search!
Browse suitable locations & go for tours
Now that you know what exactly you need from your new space, and where it is you want to be located, go for tours around suitable locations. Bring members from your team along too where possible, to get a few opinions on each space.
