Top Location for your Head Office
Wednesday, March 13, 2019
As a supplier of pre-owned office furniture, we deliver to industrial estates, town centres and business hubs across the South East. It got us thinking, is London still the dream location or is there a rival for the top spot?
If you are looking to set up an office in the South East, a favourable location must include affordable rent, good transport links and a skilled local workforce. With this in mind, we sat on our quality second-hand chairs and undertook some research.
It seems that whilst London still has a considerable draw, the cost of renting both office space and living accommodation is prohibitive. There are great transport links, but driving and parking in the capital is a challenge. This has an impact on employees, suppliers and visitors. London was not at the top of any poll we could find.
In 2018, Slough hit the top of the leader board in a report compiled by Glassdoor, beating London, Milton Keynes, Oxford and Cambridge. This report looked at a range of factors including the cost of living, job opportunities and worker satisfaction.
Just a 30 minute train journey into London Paddington (and half an hour’s drive from our used office furniture showroom) Slough has fantastic facilities on the doorstep. The town is one of the most affordable in the Thames Valley and has a highly successful local economy.
The town boasts an active business community, including over 400 companies located on a single trading estate. This thriving economy attracts companies to set up in the town. It also has a strong allure for skilled employees who are looking for great opportunities and competitive salaries outside of London.
If Slough ticks all of the boxes for your business, you’re in good company. The town has the UK’s highest concentration of Global Headquarters outside of London.
