3 Ways You Can Tell Your Office is Getting Too Small

You must be here because your company is growing. But that’s a good thing, right? Well, not necessarily. I mean, it’s definitely a good thing. When you get more customers and clients, you will hire more employees, more work will get done, and last, but not least, more money will be made. But growth could also mean that there will be less space, the office will become overcrowded, and it will feel like it’s shrinking.

Although nothing is impossible, it’s pretty unlikely that your office is shrinking. You’re just gaining more and more employees as your company expands and everyone is running out of room. Luckily, NMBOC, also known as National Maintenance and Build Out Company, can help. We are a facility management company that provides build out and facility maintenance services for businesses across the nation. If you need quality building project management, we’ll be there. Here are three ways you can tell if your office is getting too small and you need a build out project:

  1. Workers are crammed in like sardines – It’s much harder to get work done when everyone is packed in a little bit too closely. If your employees can smell each other’s perfume and cologne, then it’s probably time to start thinking about a bigger office because personal space is essential for contentment and work productivity. All in all, your employees will be able to get more done if they have more room to work.
  1. Filing cabinets are filled to the brim – If the filing cabinets in your office are hard to open or close because they’re so full, that might be a telling sign of an office that’s too small. But the good thing is, this is an easy problem to solve. With technology constantly evolving, you can now use cloud storage on the internet to cut down on paper usage. You’ll be able to share who sees your documents, use less filing cabinet space, and pull the document up whenever you need it.
  1. The break room isn’t relaxing – Are there so many people in your break room constantly that it’s not even relaxing anymore? The break room used to be a place for employees to relax and take a little breather, but now you all feel like it’s too crowded to breathe. A build out by a facility maintenance company could do the trick and turn your overcrowded break room back into that land of relaxation.

Those are three ways you can tell if your office is getting too small. One of the best ways to keep you and employees happy is to provide them with a sufficient office space. We can provide that for you at NMBOC. To learn more about company build out and facility management projects, contact us at 800-419-5754.
