Moving your office out of the capital

Why you should move your office out of the capital city and how to move your office space.

As working from home becomes the new ‘normal’, big offices in city centres are becoming a thing of the past. Many offices, as a result of big cities going into lockdown, are packing up their ships and decentralising their headquarters to city outskirts instead.

There are countless benefits to this decentralisation of office space for both the employer and the employee.

For one, it’s cheaper. Office space is cheaper to rent without the added city tax. It’s also cheaper to refurbish as again there’s no city tax and it is unquestionably easier for construction businesses to access your site and get materials to it. It’s a great chance to create your dream aesthetic office space.

It’s also greener. Without the big city and gigantic skyscrapers, the office location is more likely to include an outdoor space with unpolluted fresh air and a green view. This is undoubtedly going to have a positive effect on employee’s wellbeing and thus their productivity rates. Forbes says, “When we work in green-certified offices, we get a 26% boost in cognition”

Additionally, it’s closer. This office move is likely to reduce the commute employees face daily. TUC found that; “the total average UK commute takes up just less than an hour per day (58.4 minutes). There are regional differences here, with Londoners having the longest commute (81 minutes)” Escaping the big city office might also help to encourage more sustainable travel such as cycling or walking to work.
