We’ve moved offices! Stop by and say “Hi”Topic: Esendex
We’re excited to announce that our team has moved to a new location! We’ve moved closer to city and we are now located in South Melbourne, on Albert Road to be more precise. To be completely precise, our new address is: Level 10, 60 Albert Road, South Melbourne VIC 3205.We have spent the previous 2 and a half years in a building about 15 km away from the CBD, in North Brighton. Whilst this office was a great place to work and served us very well, we have been steadily growing and decided it was time to upgrade. The new office is much larger, brighter and more on brand than the previous. The above picture, taken by myself on my phone, shows part of the new office and what it looks like. Chris, our General Manager in Australia, has worked hard these last few months to get everything sorted for this move, and when the moving day finally came around, it took but half a day to transfer the equipment and final essentials. This move is great for us as a company for a number of reasons:
- Space – We now have a much larger office than before, described by Chris as palatial. This not only means our current staff have more room to spread out, but it opens up the ability to expand at a greater rate. The space also allowed us to have a much needed board room, where we can get together for meetings as well as entertain customers.
- Location – We’re now located closer to the CBD and in an area surrounded by multinational corporations and even a few of our customers. This is great for access to said customers and also makes trips to the city much quicker and easier. We’re also surrounded by a few nice places to eat and have a park, the Botanical Gardens, across the road so our staff can go for a walk, a run or a picnic on their lunch break. Lovely.
- Visibility – Our last office was quite a bit smaller and we were operating on the second level of the building. Our branding wasn’t on the outside of the office and so we lived a somewhat hidden away. Now we are present within a large office in a large building. Fully branded and very easy to find.
- Morale – every team needs time to socialise together and bond, and whilst we did do this in our last office, the move allows us to expand on this. The first purchase we made to improve our social time was a mini table tennis table. Each week on a Friday evening, we host mini table tennis tournament, so if you happen to be close by and want to enter, you need just ask – we’re getting pretty good though, so be warned.
It has been an exciting year for Esendex Australia, and with this move we can start a new chapter of our history. Finally, we want to thank all of our customers, new and old, for their support and custom over the past years, which has helped us grow to this point and make the move possible. We also want to give a big thank you to the contractors, Concept Office, who did a phenomenal job at quickly getting our new space ready for us. Once again, please feel free to drop by, say hello and have a game of table tennis. We look forward to seeing you.
