We've previously blogged about the fast-growing nature of Berkshire business – being located close to London with improvements in transport links happening all the time, the area has grown exponentially in the last decade alone. Now, a new report has suggested that Reading is set to become one of the fastest growing towns in the country during the next three years, with a growing business community helping to bring further investment, jobs and people into the area.
As office fitters in Reading, we have seen this trend establish itself during the last few years – our clients have included existing Reading businesses who are needing to refresh their offices to portray the ultra-professional and innovative business image that's expected of such a vibrant area. Another part of our work has seen us helping new businesses to relocate to the area – a trend that is will continue in the next few years.
A Growing Need For Office Fitters In Reading.
According to a recent article by Get Reading , the EY's UK Region and City Economic Forecast has said that the town 'has been deemed a South-East powerhouse' that will grow at a faster rate than London within the next three years. EY, which is a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, says that Reading should expect to see a growth of 2.4% GVA (Gross Value Added) every year up until at least 2020.
In the article, the manager of EY in Thames Valley and the South, Richard Baker, said of the report:
“ The growth we're seeing in both Reading and the Thames Valley reflects the strengths of the region in terms of its highly skilled workforce; the employer base ranging from world-leading corporates through to fast-growth entrepreneurs; and the region's sectoral composition ."
It isn't just Reading that flies the flag for Berkshire near the top of the list, mind – Bracknell and Wokingham have also been predicted to grow by 2.3%. When you consider that the national average growth will be 1.8%, this news must be very encouraging for local business – especially considering as we live in uncertain times, what with an exit from the European Union still not fully agreed.
Why Should I Improve My Office Design In Berkshire?
The issue with the growth of the business community is just that – it'll attract more competitors into the area. As such, if you're in charge of a business who is looking towards the future, here are three other key reasons why you should improve your office design in Reading:
- Increase Productivity . A major reason why many businesses choose to improve their office interiors is simply to raise levels of productivity and the quality of work that they produce. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Would you like to work in an environment that is uncomfortable, demoralising and just plain dull? One that employs outdated technology and doesn't have collaborative spaces for people to get together and create ideas? With (or without) such things, it really isn't a surprise that a workplace like this doesn't produce a great rate of productivity– or why it doesn't attract the best talent. By using office fitters in Reading to reimagine your workplace, you'll be creating a fresh design that will incorporate everything you need in order to push on in your industry, giving your employees the ideal facilities and tools with which to produce their best work.
- Better Efficiency . Reimaging your office will allow you to make better use of thebuilding it's housed in; transforming it fromsomewhere to work in, to somewhere that works as another member of the team – working alongside staff, thanks to its better functionality, rather than just sitting in the background, being dull. Reimaging your space will also give you the opportunity to put in place plans for future expansion too – something that would save on high costs if you need to expand from scratch in the future.
- Create Yourself A Brand. If you're looking to host any clients within your office interiors, then the need to present it as a professional environment is an obvious must. In order to give off that sense of originality, something that would engage the client and give them a great impression of your business, would be if your interiors were bespoke – utterly unique. By using professional office fitters in Reading, you can achieve just that – creating a branded workplace that will be designed to say everything about your company, without you having to say anything at all!
