Your choice of business environment is incredibly important as it can affect many of your companies assets and necessities such as income, expenses, effort and overall operations. Regarding laboratories specifically, you need to ensure you have a safe and spacious environment, a location where you and your team are comfortable, feel safe and have enough storage to keep the equipment.
Is your workplace not up to standards? Unsure on what negatives you are looking for? Here are 7 signs that show you should reconsider lab relocation:
- Your Current Space Is Too Small – Maybe your team is growing, or maybe you don’t have enough storage for new equipment – if the business environment is somewhere we multiple people operate and visit every day, it’s pivotal that it fits your spatial needs, to prevent any injuries or damage to any equipment. Also, a cramped space with cluttered storage doesn’t come across as a professional working area.
- Commuting Is Difficult – If you are a small business, you may wish to relocate due to your staff’s commuting issues. At a certain point, commuting can become a burden to some of your team, so relocating to a more convenient location, whether it’s closer to home or for an easier route, it might just make all of the difference. However, if you are a large business with only a few staff members facing difficulty getting to and from work, relocating your lab isn’t always the solution.
- Closer To Your Clients – If you are a business that involves commuting to your clients or vice versa, it might be a pain to keep making journeys back and forth when you could be closer. This will also save you money on petrol, give you more time with your clients and prevent the stress of any traffic or breakdowns.
- You Might Be Having Financial Issues – As a business owner, you should be monitoring your company’s financial situation, in terms of income, taxes, loans, assets, wages, equipment and insurance etc. In terms of this article, we will talk regarding the affordability of your current work environment – can you not afford it? Is there a more efficient building that suits your needs? If so, investing in a cheaper or more reliable location (whether it’s less or more expensive) could impact your business dramatically.
- The Market Has Allowed You To Buy More With Less – Similar to the last point If you find a property or location that offers more than your current property but for a better price, it might be worth the purchase. Additionally, this will progress to improve your financial situation, possibly provide more storage and space, and overall create a more professional and reliable workplace for you and your team.
- Location Issues – This can involve many peeves you might have about your location, whether it’s physically or just personal preference. For instance, working in a laboratory might mean you would like to be local to science parks and other laboratories, or maybe genuinely a nice area for presentation and inspiration.
