3. Find a location that suits your business
Location is always a key factor with any type of real estate decision. Ideally, the location of your office should be convenient to get to for employees and clients.
Think about how your employees travel to work. Consider the proximity to public transport, parking, even bike tracks, if you have a few employees who like to ride to work.
A suburban location may save your business in rent but it’s important to look what the location offers in replace of CBD convenience.
Take into account the character of the neighbourhood and think about the security and safety of your employees. Is there a high crime rate in the area and can employees walk to and from the office safely?
Consider the location of your clients, customers and competitors.
Do you need to be close to them?
How will your new office location impact travel time and productivity for client facing staff?
Workspaces located within short distances to cafes, gyms, parks and recreational facilities will boost the mood and well-being of your staff.
