Consideration #4: Will Your Company Fit In?
If you’ve built a strong company culture, one that’s created a cohesive organization you’re proud of, this final consideration will be especially important. After all, if you want to cultivate that culture, you’ll want to be sure that you’re relocating to a business environment that supports it.
For example, if you’re running a relatively traditional, buttoned-up financial services firm, a move to quirky Portland may leave your organization feeling adrift, especially if you plan to cater to local customers.
Those same concerns extend to the staff you’re bringing with you. Will you be moving them to a radically different area? In addition to impacting their quality of life, it might also mean they never end up putting down roots in your new town. As a result, you may end up losing them in the long term.
It may sound trivial to some. However, for companies whose culture is their stock-in-trade, it’s worth some research. That way, you’ll be sure to find synergy in your new business community, which will fuel the future of your organization and the happiness of your employees.
