How to choose the best location for a new office

Good transport accessibility: one of the key factors when choosing a suitable location for a new office is the availability of transport links. A convenient location close to public transport hubs will make travelling easier and minimise time spent in traffic jams. Therefore, pay attention to how easy it is and how many different ways employees and clients have to get to and from the office. Consider proximity to bus, train or metro (subway) stations. Also, think about good parking options, which are important for those who prefer individual, private transport.

Infrastructure and services: a suitable location should offer sufficient infrastructure and services to make employees’ and clients’ daily lives easier and more comfortable. Restaurants, cafés and shops should be abundant in the selected location. Banks, post offices and medical facilities, supermarkets and fitness centres may also be important for employees. Working parents will also likely appreciate the proximity of leisure and educational facilities for children.

Room for growth: when choosing a location, it is also important to consider your business’ future growth and development. If you are planning to expand, it is a good idea to choose an area with sufficient potential to handle new business opportunities and an influx of employees. Try to find out what the plans are for the area’s future development.

Location image and reputation: the reputation and image of the chosen location can influence the clients’ and employees’ perceptions of your company. Choose a location that matches your company's culture and values. Some areas have a specific character and are perceived as modern and trendy. Consider what environment our surroundings best fit or match your company.
