Business is doing great and your employee engagement is at an all time high. You have been closing deals left and right which only means that you are inching towards your expected growth objectives sooner than later. With these developments, you find yourself in a pleasant predicament of having too little space to make room for more team members and equipment needed to meet your production goals. You then begin to realise that you will soon need to move out, and when we say soon we mean now!
Office relocation management requires months of preparation but is still achievable with just weeks of planning. You will just have to double your efforts and ensure that all aspects of the move are precisely handled in order to be successful in doing so. Here are a few tips that will help you strategise more effectively.
Find the new office location that will suit your needs
Is it more space that you require, or a change in location? Or perhaps you intend to have a second office to cover more ground and bring in more opportunities for your business? Whatever it may be, it is important for you to have a clear cut reason for deciding to move out. That will allow you to filter through the thousands of facilities and venues available and save you valuable time.
Calendar the activities
Whether you have months or weeks to spare before the actual move, it is crucial for you to have specific milestones to achieve. But more than completing the tasks, it is highly important for these activities to be accomplished exactly on the day you intend, if not in advance. Working with deadlines is challenging enough. Do not make it doubly difficult by having to worry about delays.
Inform your contractors, suppliers and customers
In any logistical process, or any activity for that matter, an effective communication plan must be in place. Apart from relaying the news of the move to your employees, your vendors and, most especially, your customers must be aware of your new business address. This will ensure that they will not have a difficult time tracking you down for transactions. Always remember that moving does not have to impact your operations negatively.
Dispose off and replace old business cards, letterheads, collaterals, etc.
As soon as the location of your new office has been confirmed, be sure to contact your office supplies distributor of the change and place an order for new business collaterals. It is also wise to collect all old supplies and dispose them to avoid confusion and other problems in the future.
