What is the point?

Every now and then, when the rental agreement comes to an end, the company's management faces a dilemma - whether to stay or to move office. Moving creates certain problems: a completely new fit-out, transport of all company equipment, and work disruption (packing and unpacking all office items), but in a broader perspective the change may bring many benefits - both for employees and for the whole company.

Attachment to the building

Some organizations are very attached to both the location and the building, and it is hard to persuade them to move. Such an attitude can affect both the finances and the organization of the company. When contemplating an extension of the current rental agreement, it is worthwhile investigating the situation on the office rental market (preferably with the aid of a specialized company such as MAXON Nieruchomości), and to consider whether you would not gain financially as a result of the change of location. The supply on the office space market in Poland is record-breaking year after year, which positively influences rent prices (from the tenants' perspective).

New quality of work

A new office, often in a new building, translates into a higher standard of both the infrastructure, such as cabling and air conditioning, as well as increasingly more interesting building design (green surroundings or facilities for cyclists). Newer buildings are usually more prestigious, which makes it easier to attract employees and builds a brand in the eyes of your customers. In addition, the move itself often has an impact on your employees, who find new energy in their new workplace.


Staying in your current office with the unrealized desire to give your space a facelift can paralyse your business and reduce the comfort of your employees. It is important to remember that when moving office and signing a 5-year agreement, most owners offer a turnkey finish to the tenant's requirements, and there are also situations in which the tenant gets money to cover, in part, the fit-out and the relocation itself.
