Comments Off on How to Prepare your Employees for an Office Move
Regardless if you are moving homes or offices, it can definitely be a stressful life event. Unfortunately moving is more than just packing up boxes. If you are a business owner, you need to ensure your employees feel comfortable about the move.
First of all, you need to be very organised and start planning early. Make a calendar and schedule everything which will need to be done during the move process. This is where you will need to write down exactly what will be moved and when it will be moved. This also includes when certain items will be packed up and when the mail will be forwarded to your new address.
Once you have organised your schedule and shared it with all of your employees it is very important to stay very transparent during the move process so everybody knows exactly what’s happening. You also need to set up a communications strategy between you, the movers and your employees. This will remove any frustration between everyone as everyone will know what’s happening when and who they need to speak with. The last thing you want is the kettle to be gone and everyone complaining they can’t make themselves their morning coffee. Allowing your employees to know what is happening will help them adjust to the move and keep them excited.
You need to remember to keep yourself excited about the move, this will then rub off onto your employees. Tell them how excited you are about moving to a new building and let them know all the new things they are going to have in the new office. If there will be any improvements or changes, be sure to let them know so they will be prepared for their new workspace.
The biggest issue companies have when moving offices is not having their phones and internet connected at their new workspace prior to your move day. This can be a serious issue and create major staff disruption and staff downtime, which can cost you a lot of money. We recommend you start organising your phones and internet at least six weeks prior to your move and continue to follow them up to make sure everything is on track.
