How to Have Your Employees Prep for an Office Relocation

Are you gearing up for an office relocation? It can be a stressful and chaotic time, not just for leadership but also for staff. But your employees are critical to its success. Their buy-in, engagement, and preparation can make all the difference when it comes to a successful move. Take a look at how they can help with preparation.

Team Involvement

Creating a move committee is a great way to get employees involved in the process. The committee can coordinate packing responsibilities, handle communication, organize timelines, and be the liaison between staff and leadership. Have them work with the rest of your organization to create process information and build strategies for organizing and planning the move.

Pre-Move Prep

Most employees pack their own desks except for the computer and electronic equipment. Giving your team a timeline and supplies to clean their desks and pack their personal and work belongings will ease the process when it’s time for the movers to load the trucks.

Communication and Feedback

Announcing the move as soon as it’s confirmed is the best way to get your employees on board. It can help reduce stress and keep work streamlined and reduce the potential for loss of productivity. It’s also helpful to get feedback from your staff regarding the move and the process. Not only can it give you valuable insight, but it can help them feel engaged in the process.

When you’re planning your office relocation, don’t leave your employees out of the loop. Their help with preparation can help the process go smoothly. For more tips for your move, contact the team at Nilson Van and Storage.
