It is ideal for young families seeking the perfect lifestyle mix of fresh air, countryside and sport. The Israeli government uses tax breaks to incentivize companies to set up there. And, importantly, the local university – the Tel Hai Academic College – produces high-calibre candidates in our sector. Employing just a handful of people when it opened, the Tel Hai office's ranks swelled to 230 over the next decade on the back of high-quality products like WLA Workload Automation. Needless to say, accommodating so many extra employees in a space originally designed for 30 led to challenges.

To take the business to the next level, something had to change. We began the task of finding new premises in 2014. We wanted to remain close by the university and the old office to minimize disruption, but ready-made high-spec office accom- modation in that part of Israel is still very scarce.
