Over the last year our business has increased dramatically and with an influx of new hires we were bursting at the seams at our Bolton offices so we needed to move to larger premises. Not wanting to move far, we were lucky enough to find a perfect space across the car park – we certainly got some strange looks as we wheeled our chairs across to our new home!
We wanted to make our new office an exciting and interesting place for both staff and visitors, so, taking our inspiration from some of our clients’ recent moves, we’ve included some fun elements. Top clients Missguided and AO.com were both in the news recently for their funky and cool offices – we may not be as big as them (or have their budgets!) but we’d like to think that with a bit of imagination we’ve achieved our goal.
On entering the office, the first thing our visitors are greeted with is our ‘Wall of Fame’ which displays logos of our key clients and case studies. Our values are very important to us so these are also on display in our reception area to remind us all what is important to our business.
In our boardroom, we’ve got a timeline illustrating the key milestones in the history of Forward Role - from an office in MD Steve’s bedroom with Peeps the Cat - to today’s office with space for 30 ‘Forward Rollers’. There’s also imagery showing the evolution of our brand mascot ‘Roland’.
