Why Milton Keynes Is An Office Relocation Hotspot
With its convenient transport links and great local amenities Milton Keynes is becoming an increasingly popular spot for office relocation. 45 miles northwest of London, this large Buckinghamshire location was one of the first new towns to be specifically designed as a modern urban business environment. Government figures indicate that many companies are now starting to recognise the potential of having a new office here, with on average five businesses moving into, or expanding within, the city every month.
As a business environment, Milton Keynes has a good mix of existing companies, from large blue chip organisations such as Argos and BP, to smaller sized businesses (87% of businesses here employ 20 people or less). The workforce in Milton Keynes is well suited to making moving to a new office in Milton Keynes much easier where additional staff are required, as 41% of the population is under 35 and 53% of the workforce is managerial, professional or skilled. The city has a wide range of housing, exciting leisure and entertainment activities, as well as the UK’s largest school building programmes and four universities, which makes it a great choice as a location for a new office in terms of staff relocation. Add to that the fact that London is just 34 minutes away by train and that also makes Milton Keynes easily commutable.
A number of the 10,000 businesses that operate in Milton Keynes make use of the concept of the serviced office in their every day activities. Serviced offices are an ideal solution for businesses making an office move to Milton Keynes, as they are essentially offices that are fully fitted and furnished and ready to go. Business services, such as video conferencing, reception and conference facilities can be provided as part of a serviced office package and there are no extra charges for business rates, lighting, security etc. The serviced office is low cost, low hassle and great value for businesses at a time when the day to day needs to keep running smoothly, in spite of the location move.
