Considering A Move?

Moving Office? 3 People Whose Opinion is More Important than Yours (Sorry!)

Looking for a new office is a bit like looking for a new house – everyone has an opinion about where you should go and what it should be like. But it’s your business, right? Well, actually… we introduce three people whose opinions about your office you can’t afford to ignore.

With all these stakeholders in the office decision-making process, it seems your office isn’t really your office after all…

1. Your employees

Beryl in accounts is grumbling about the two extra flights of stairs. David in HR begrudges the extra half hour added to his commute each day. Rebecca in IT is bored because there’s nowhere to go out at lunch.  Given that your employees will be the most directly affected by your office move, it’s worthwhile talking to them and finding out what they think. While you might not be able to accommodate everyone’s requests, eliminating just a few of the main issues could save you some substantial recruitment fees.

2. Your clients

The more often they visit, the more important their opinion is. It’s about making sure your office is in line with your client’s expectations.  First off, it needs to tie in with the brand image you’ve worked hard to project. Clients who perceive you as a high-end brand will be disappointed to arrive for a meeting at offices which say “value” rather than “stylish”. On the other hand, if you portray yourself as a rural, earthy brand, they may be baffled by your futuristic high-rise city office space.

And while you want to impress, there’s a fine line between offices which are impressive enough and ones so luxurious your clients start to question just what their money is paying for. Exactly where that line is will depend on your client base.

3. Your business adviser

If you’re in the early stages of your business and lucky enough to benefit from having a mentor, then take advantage of their expert business advice. Unlike your employees and your clients – both groups who’ll look at it from the perspective of what they have to gain – your business advisor should be able to stand back and examine the business case for your new offices. That’s an opinion which could prove very valuable indeed.

If you’ve taken the decision to make the move for your business give our friendly team a call.  Here at Ransom Wood on the outskirts of Mansfield we have a natural environment located in acres of woodland away from the hustle and bustle.  We have a range of offices available to suit your needs including characterful, small units and larger suites for open plan.  Our on park restaurant, Forever Green, offers somewhere to relax whether it be on your lunch break or to entertain clients.

Call us on 01623 675304 to arrange a viewing.

  • Chris Kho


    Still love to walk around. I used to live in the big house at the top of the drive, it was Oak House then and I nursed at Ransom Hospital , Byron Ward which was on the left side of Ransom Hall car park. Oak House used to be Sisters accommodation. I think the main chef lived upstairs when I lived there and just me downstairs mostly. I loved it but had to keep my kitchen door closed because of the squirrels. Loved looking down the drive out of my bedroom and lounge windows, beautiful in Autumn and when it snowed, I worked at Ransom Hospital until it closed in 1987. Wonder why Oak House was later named Ash House? Lovely dining at Forever Green in the grounds whilst I reminisce.
