Moving Offices? It Doesn’t Have to Be a Bad Thing!

October 19th, 2015 / Author: rbielsky

While the process can be inconvenient, there are also many benefits to moving locations and plenty of ways to make the transition easier — including using a broker to negotiate your lease space.

Tip No. 1: Start planning early and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

The more time you have, the easier everything will be. Start planning as early as you can to ensure that you don’t miss or rush any steps in the process. Consider asking for the help of a trained realty group — such as MCR — to ensure the process runs smoothly.

Tip No. 2: Introduce new ways of working.

With a new location can come a new way of working. Designing a new space allows you to look at how your business runs and seek out ways it could be improved. Consider bringing in standing desks or treadmill desks, introducing an open floor plan to foster communication and productivity, or try other trending ways to switch up your workspace and keep employees on their toes.

Tip No. 3: Expand your workforce with your space.

Did your previous workspace have employees crammed two-per-cubicle or sitting in a janitor’s closet for lack of space? A new workspace can accommodate a bigger workforce and allow room for your business to grow.

Tip No. 4: New space, new attitude.

A new space can refresh workers’ attitudes, change external company perspective, and increase excitement and motivation in the workplace. Look at a new location as a fresh start, and take advantage of the morale boost and potential for change that it offers.

Tip No. 5: Build your brand into your space.

Your old space may not have had room for enhanced brand design and recognition, but a new space is a blank canvas on which you have the opportunity to enhance and improve your brand.

Moving locations doesn’t have to be a headache — instead, it can be an opportunity to improve and get a new start. With MCR’s expert guidance and knowledge, we can make sure your move is a positive change.
