Steps to a Stress-Free Office Move
As you clutch onto your “World’s Best Boss” mug, you try to envision an office move that makes you worthy of such a title. If you’ve ever moved into a new home, you’ll know the moving process is, for the most part, made up of two parts worry, and two parts excitement. But office moving has its own set of concerns: there’s the added pressure of clients, projects, meetings, and daily operations to consider.
Office moving should benefit your business rather than slow it down.
So, if you’re planning on moving your office space to a brand-new location, recruit a Niagara moving company that will help you move it, not lose it!
When you’re an owner or employer who’s in charge of the move, you’ll probably have a flurry of questions for your movers. However, you’ll also want to communicate with your staff and let them know what to expect come moving day.
Here are a few things you’ll want to let your employees know:
· The address of the new office
· The date of the move & expected duration of the move
· Where they can make inquiries
· Key features of the new space
· What they can take / leave
Your staff will need ample time to alert clients and contacts about the office’s moving dates and will appreciate your keeping them in the loop. Let your employees know the new layout of your space and allow them to have a say with the seating chart. The office move also provides an excellent opportunity to upgrade desks, chairs, and even your décor! If certain items can be left behind in favour of an upgrade, make sure everyone gets a chance to speak now or forever hold onto their ten-year-old desk!
