Communicate well with all your staff before, during and after the office relocation.
Proper instruction and employee role designation may prove vital in assuring that work areas and departments are prepared for the office relocation.
If you select your move management and removal partners wisely, you should be offered help with the drafting of employee pre-move instructions and procedures. In many cases, it should be possible to conduct a pre-move employee orientation seminar to ensure everyone knows where they will be moving to and the steps they need to follow.
Ensuring that your move managers take an active role in this communication process, usually provides that employees treat the process with greater vigilance. They will be made to realise they have a key role to play in the office relocation and that their cooperation is essential to meeting limited time schedules.
Through focused communication, the provision of step-by-step guidelines and move status reports, management and employee anxiety should be minimised, communication maintained and time schedules met.
Responsibility usually begins with each employee packing and marking items in his/her own work area and if handled efficiently and professionally, invariably encourages ‘buy-in’ and so ends with them taking the opportunity to create a neater, more efficient and motivating environment.
