Congratulations! Your company has decided to relocate. With this fresh start comes an exciting opportunity to redesign, refresh, and rework your old office methodology. Starting in a new space provides a unique opportunity to maximize your brand new square footage with the latest trends and products.
“The style, tone and purpose of company branding often changes as a company develops, so once you move offices, you’ll have the ability to update your aesthetics in line with the message you want to portray about your company. The building, the interior design, the location and the style you choose are major factors in creating your brand’s tone and portraying the right message.” – Business.com
While carefully considering how to portray your brand, keep in mind that a fresh office space is also an excellent opportunity to attract and maintain top talent. For example, did you know?
