Man and Vans are London’s leading and most reliable removal companies with over 10 years’ experience in the industry. We know the ins and outs of moving an office and know it can often be a stressful and complicated endeavour. That’s why we’ve put together our top tips on how to handle your employees when you are moving office.
Planning and Preparation are ESSENTIAL
An office move can be an overwhelming project. Planning is essential to making your move as seamless as possible. Use checklists and spreadsheets to organise your move and get your employees to prepare their work space by packing all of their belongings into labelled boxes.
You will need to openly communicate with your employees during your office relocation. Whilst the majority of your office may be excited for the move, some may find it unsettling. Having an open line of communication with your staff means that everyone is on the same page and the experience will be less stressful.
Keep It Positive
It is vital that during your office move you keep it positive. Highlight the positives of moving to a new office. Positivity is KEY!
Involve your staff
Staff involvement is a very important part of achieving a successful move. Consider having an employee from each department on an internal “office move team” and hold regular meetings where you can involve them in each stage of the office move.
