Moving Your Office Without Effecting Employee Production

Expanding your commercial building space is never a bad thing; if you find your existing office is too small, than that naturally means your business is doing quite well!

Moving Offices

The hiring of additional employees and purchase of new equipment can get rid of spare square footage very quickly, and one of the key ways to maintain streamlined, efficient operations, is to have plenty of room for growth (both physically and metaphorically).

Relocating your Commercial Space the Right Way

If you haven’t already, take a moment to congratulate how far your company has come! Trust us, you are going to need all of the motivation you can get when it comes time to relocate. Although hiring a professional moving company and preparing in advance can certainly ease the tension associated with transportation and logistics, no one said changing offices was ever simple.

Perhaps one of the biggest concerns business owners have with regards to corporate relocations is the fear of hindering company workflow in the interim. After all, how are your employees expected to work at full capacity when their desks, computers, and other office gear are currently in flux?

Keep Staff Informed and the Options Open

Right now, the best thing for everyone is to embrace flexibility. Whether it’s allowing staff to work alternating schedules (nights, weekends, etc.) to accommodate the current move, the more options you give employees to complete their projects, the better.

Offering the option to work remotely is also something to consider. If employees aren’t being interrupted by packers and eventually movers, then their work schedules are more likely to flow smoothly.

Always remember to keep employees well-informed and up-to-date about the status of the move. If any changes come about during the transition, address them in weekly meetings. Taking a few minutes to discuss what everyone should expect in the coming weeks or months can clear up a lot of confusion and prevent disorder and disarray.

Furthermore, encouraging staff to get involved in the move is highly recommended, too. You will likely find your employees are eager to voice their opinion on how best to structure and design the new work environment and office space. Who better to take advice from than the ones who form the company?
