Spring 2016 is here, which means that for a lot of businesses it’s time to get rid of the old and in with the new, a bit of spring cleaning. Sometimes this sentiment refers to the idea improving your office space, which could be the case for a number of reasons. The question for this situation is: Do you need to relocate your business or does your current space need an office refurbishment?
What Is a Refurbishment?
There is a common misconception that a fit out is exactly like a refurbishment,however this is not the case. While office fit out is all about working on a new empty space, refurbishment is all about revamping your current workspace; improving what you currently have.
What Is Relocation?
A relocation on the other hand is all about moving the office space to a new location, as opposed to working with the current one. This often happens when a company is expanding their horizons or if there are better options out there for efficient workspaces.
However doing this does require planning for the future, so be sure to choose an office space that is for the long term. This means that choosing a slightly larger office could cause problems very quickly, as if your business is constantly expanding you’ll continue to run out of space and therefore constantly relocate.
There are many reasons that the location of your business could cause you to want to relocate, not just from the view of the business itself but also from your employees. The distance between your office space and the location of most of your employees could pose as a big issue, as not having a fine balance between work and home life due to travel can increase the likelihood of stress and lacking productivity.
The location may also be an issue because the market in the particular area is relatively niche and not as profitable as another location of your market. If your business is service related this could definitely cause a problem, as there will be more expenses on travel for workers to provide their services.
If it’s been a while since the office has been revamped, employees may feel that their workspaces is becoming a repetitive and stale place to be in on a regular basis. This can be a bit of an issue as an uninspired employee means an unproductive employee usually. This is the perfect opportunity to consider an office refurbishment, as it can increase employee morale and overall productivity.
Similar to the point above, employees do not want to work in a low quality workspace that is uninspired and dull. However workspace quality can also be a relocation problem, depending on if the workspace is beyond help or not. That being said it’s often the case that the office space just needs a funky new refurbishment.
Improving Your Company Image
There are plenty of office spaces out there that do not reflect the company image, which can be really disappointing if your company is all about being visually funky. This is where a refurbishment would be ideal, as it allows you to style your entire office based around your corporate style and corporate colours.
