Whether your office is moving to a new building across town, or simply being relocated to a different floor, the process can be a stressful one. The main worry is often a loss of productivity for the business. Yet there are some simple steps that can be taken to minimise this as well as making the whole thing a little easier.
The two most important things to have in any change of circumstances are organisation and communication. They will make for a smoother transition, as well as maximising the time you have to get things done. Planning and preparation should include a detailed map of the new office that shows each and every plug socket, connection point and layout of furniture. Emails, meetings and notifications informing everyone of what will be happening enables them to plan their workload and enhances the team as a whole.
The more you do before the office move, the more quickly business will return back to normal afterwards. Do not overlook the small things, like clearing out your desk draws in plenty of time, making sure every piece of paper is filed, and above all, labeling as much as you can.Details
