As the government’s restrictions relax and offices begin to reopen, preparing a workspace to help businesses return to the office after COVID is one of the primary concerns for many employers. To help navigate these changes, we recently interviewed one of our PA Collective® partners, Winkworth Interiors, to better understand how offices are changing. Managing
As an office manager, moving offices can be one of the most time-consuming and stressful experiences in your career, as balancing day-to-day operations with searches and viewings can take their toll. We’ve compiled a checklist to help make relocating into a serviced office as simple and stress-free as possible, so you can enjoy the positives of moving office.
Do your homework
Although you may want to find a new office in a hurry, taking the time to work out exactly what you want to gain from your new office is vital! Weigh up your business needs such as location, budget, size and quality. Many organisations looking for a new space change their requirements within weeks of their first search. This is usually because they weren’t clear on their parameters to begin with.
FreeOfficeFinder, an online office broker, has developed a new pricing tool for serviced offices. The tool is updated regularly, and allows users to filter individual office requirements like team size and budget. This allows office managers in London to plan their office search and calculate rental prices easily.

Location, location, location
Knowing the right location for your business remains one of the most important factors when searching for a new office. Can employees and clients commute to the new office easily? Make sure you consult your colleagues during your search process, through a feedback survey or meetings. This way, you can ensure your new office will be a good move for everyone. The FreeOfficeFinder tool also features an interactive map, allowing users to discover and compare nearby locations available for your office move.
Room to grow
For any company to succeed in today’s world, the ability to adapt and grow is crucial. Whilst you may only look for a space to accommodate your current team, it’s equally important to look to the future plans of the business. Having the flexibility to downscale or expand your office during your contract is a valuable advantage. The last thing you want is to be unable to expand your business because your office space will not allow it. Serviced offices allow businesses to rent work space on a rolling licence agreement, giving you room to grow. You can’t predict the future, but considering any changes your business may face is key to thriving in your new office.
