Moving your office to a new location involves a myriad of decisions. Not only do you need to ensure that the new office is on brand and offers employees and staff a great experience, but you also have to manage the change with existing employees.
Some of the questions that office managers and business owners ask during this time include:
- Do I need to consult with my staff?
- What is the impact of commuting versus relocation?
- What do my employment contracts say?
- What if someone won’t or can’t move?
Here are a few tips to help you with the office relocation:
Prior to move day, make sure that everything that can fit into a crate or a box is packed away into a crate or a box. Desks, cupboards, and drawers need to be empty. IT equipment needs to be sealed in an IT bag. Personal items, valuables, and breakables should be placed in a specific area to be taken home.
Every Item Needs a Label
Everything that needs to be moved needs to have a label or else the movers won’t know where to put the boxes when they arrive at the new location.
