24 Apr 4 benefits to refreshing your office fitout
It’s generally a pretty big undertaking to refresh an office fitout, or move to a new location, no matter the size of the job, or the distance your going.
Unfortunately, it’s often thought to be a logistical nightmare. But, it doesn’t need to be! With a positive perspective, and the right team to manage the planning, it can be a great opportunity to reinvgorate your business, both internally amongst the staff and externally with your customers.
Here’s four benefits to consider, and use as part of your change management strategy:
1. Reinvigorate your customer experience
This is a great opportunity to consider the experience you are providing to your customers, and consider how you could improve it.
In particular, this is an opportunity to align your new office interior design more closely to your brand and its core message. Don’t forget that the location, the building entrance, and the interior design of the offices, as all these elemtsn play in important part in how your overall customer experience.
2. Work Smarter
We find that when clients have worked in an office space for over three years, the space starts to limit productivity and performance. When you move office, you have the opportunity to look in detail at how your workspace supports your business. It is time to provide different types of spaces for different work activities. Think about creating private, quiet areas for work which requires high levels of concentration and casual areas for collaborative work. What about reducing your meeting rooms? A lot of meeting rooms are underutilised and often too large for the purpose.
3. Boost team morale.
“Change is better than a holiday.” And the saying couldn’t be truer when it comes to office fitouts.
Change can be an exciting time for employees! When handled the right way, it gets people re-energised, and it shows that your business is doing well, due to their contributions.
Also better office interiors should attract a better calibre of prospective employees.
4. Upgrade to the latest techologies
“Out with the old. In with the new.”
There’s no better time to make upgrade to the latest technologies than when you refresh your or move office. Just make sure you’ve got a fitout company who know how to correctly install them, particularly if you’re a Health practice, as there are many regulations that govern how technology can be implemented.
