3 Things Your Employees Can Do to Help with an Office Move
Employees are incredibly useful when it comes to moving your office space, especially if they’re kept in the loop. The more you talk to them about the new location, the more excited they’ll become. From all the excitement comes a willingness to help.
While movers will take care of the heavy lifting, there is much your employees can do before and after the actual move to make the transition process an easy one. Get them involved, you’ll be so happy you did!
- Consulting with Moving Companies
It’s likely that you’ve got quite a bit on your plate making sure that business operations run as usual while you’re uprooting your office. Ask an employee (or two) to make a list of reputable moving companies in the area, and start calling around. Manhattan is bustling, and full of New York City’s most famous attractions. It’s a delightful place to live, but it’s also very loud and very, very crowded. It’s imperative to have a moving company that can successfully deal with all of these obstacles.
- Packing Up
Let your employees pack up their desks, the break room, supplies and conference rooms. Anything that’s small, or not too heavy, can easily be packed up by your employees. When they take part in the move, they’ll feel involved, and more at ease with the move itself. Don’t ever hesitate to ask them for help! Ask them to label boxes, throw out what is rarely used, and carefully organize product and client files.
- Keeping a Positive Attitude
It can be a chore to encourage a positive mental attitude at all times, but try to keep morale at the top of your list when it comes to discussing and planning the move with employees. Positivity is contagious, and will spread throughout the workplace without fail. This is so important when it comes to a big change, because you’ll find that you will lose less of your employees that don’t want to deal with a move.
It’s typical within any major business move for a few employees to quit, depending on the situation and the size of your staff. Bringing forth positivity can make all the difference.
