Advice on Office Relocation by G10 Global
GLASGOW, February 2013 – It was 6 months ago that the G10 Global team moved across Glasgow City Centre to their new headquarters at 21 Blythswood Square. Businesses commonly cite five main reasons for moving, labour and work force issues, the desire to reach new markets, the need to upgrade facilities or equipment, the desire to lower costs or increase cash flow, and considerations about quality of life. For G10 Global it was about expanding and upgrading their facilities.
While moving carries risks, a move can be one of the best things you ever do for your business which in this case was true for G10 Global. When you move or expand to a new location, the odds are stacked in your favour but there are no guarantees. Common mistakes include rushing the decision, focusing too narrowly on a few costs, failing to use available economic development services, ignoring quality-of-life factors, missing important environmental or regulatory concerns, and, believe it or not, failing to plan for future expansion.
G10 Global CEO George Kennedy says, “We wanted our new office space to represent what we stand for as a company when someone visits G10 Global. We have set our roots firmly here in Glasgow and our plan is now to develop strong leaders who can help us expand throughout Scotland and the rest of the UK.”
There are many things to think about when planning relocation, for instance, an entrepreneur/
G10 Global planned their relocation for a year and the move has resulted in the team expanding and the company will be announcing major organisational changes this summer.
