An office move is a big milestone for a company, and can bring about many new benefits. It often means your business is growing, and while office relocations don’t happen often, when they do, the new environment can do wonders for productivity. Morale, team retention and workplace processes are all bolstered by an office move, and can add new and unforeseen dynamics for employees. Mountain Moving & Storage recognizes this, and wants to take the potentially cumbersome action of office relocating, and turn it into a smooth and streamlined process, so your employees experience minimal disruption. Moving into a new office should be looked at as the main attraction, while the moving company you choose remains behind the scenes.
An office move can have a big effect on employees. In order to make your employees feel as comfortable as possible with the relocation, it is important to have HR or other team members communicate with each other to air out any concerns. It is important that all of your employees feel involved, and attention should be paid to anyone who may be alienated by the process. Sometimes big changes can be unsettling for staff, whether its restructuring or a merger, so a nurturing approach to fellow employees is best during an office move, in order to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible.
Employee concerns may stem from having to commute to a new location in the morning, or where they are going to get their lunch every day. It may be hard to see every problem down the road, so the aforementioned tactics are a good way to ensure everyone is on the same page, and goes into the office relocation with a positive mindset. Once in your new office, asking for feedback is a good way to get an idea of how everybody handled the move. And while every issue may not be able to be addressed right away, the communication itself and having a venue in which to air any problems is a good way to relieve any tension.
