4 Things to Consider When Moving, Downsizing or Expanding Office Locations

Downsizing | Moving | Relocation

Business challenges developing as a result of COVID-19 are not new to any individual or organization. Managers are scrambling to arrange safety plans to regulate their office activities and may be finding it difficult. In this time of limbo, where social interactions must be kept to a minimum and rules around maximum capacity in offices can shift back and forth depending on your state – it may be best for your corporation to expand or downsize. An office move can be stressful – and should not slow down your business operations. That’s why we’ve put together this quick list of what to consider when thinking about moving.

Entering the digital age, the adaptation of remote workplaces has begun – and this transition doesn’t look like it will be slowing down anytime soon. According to Gartner’s most recent study based on 317 CFOs and finance leaders on March 30, 2020 – they found that nearly a quarter of CFOs said they will move at least 20% of their on-site employees to permanent remote positions. These numbers are only predicted to increase as time goes on, as senior leaders capitalize on remote operations as a creative cost-cutting feature.
