One of the key factors in running a successful business is staying relevant in your market. Whether you are trying to attract new clients, new employees, or keep your existing base intact, relevancy helps you stay in front of your competition. Sometimes the easiest way to become more relevant is to give your facility a facelift. Here are some reasons why you may want to consider this.
First and foremost, to run a successful business, you need to have a good team in place. It is currently a tight labor market, with unemployment rates at an all-time low. To attract the best team, you must create an attractive work environment, as well as competing based on pay and benefits. Office environment is highly important to employees’ comfort and success. If you have a sterile, lifeless office space, you need to consider what you can do to make it inviting. Modernizing your space with group areas, a great common area or break room, and outdoor environments are important to today’s new worker.
The other side of the story is your customer base. You must make sure that your space has a certain “cool” factor, because chances are you have competitors that could easily take your business. Just as with your employees, you need to make sure your customers feel welcomed and that you create a strong positive experience tied to their visit.
Other, simpler factors involved in a facility facelift are paint, lighting, flooring, and basic structural elements of your building. If you have outdated furnishings in your space, you will feel old and tired. It’s amazing what new flooring and a fresh coat of paint can do for your building.
