It is a priority for every business to avoid downtime and productivity loss during a commercial move. Tackling the office relocation process in stages will help to mitigate short-term losses associated with insufficient planning.
A stress free commercial relocation in 5 easy steps;
Plan Strategically & Follow A Schedule
Create a timeline at the beginning of the project to ensure that you have enough time to budget, assign people to specific tasks, and create inventory lists. This will prevent you from forgetting furniture or equipment.
Communicate With Your Employees
Update your team prior to the move so they are aware of their responsibilities during the relocation process and they can arrange their work accordingly. If they have any questions or need instructions, organise a meeting to run through the timeline.
Work From Home or Organise Training Courses
One way to decrease distraction or disruption during the business move is to promote a working from home strategy. However, make sure that your employees are properly trained in using remote working resources and tools. Arranging training courses at different locations or taking the chance to visit clients, are also good ways to utilise any downtime.
Move During Holidays/Slow Season
If feasible, opt for the quietest time of the year for your business move.
