Moving offices can be a stressful and tiring affair, but here we will go over some ways to make it easier.
General chaos can ensue in a poorly handled move. Be sure to pace out employees during the move so that full coverage of the office can be maintained. Also, it does no good to move everyone on one day, but have no copiers, network capabilities, or telephone service ready at the other end of the move. Moving your staff around in stages can work well to keep the office covered while some people and equipment are still in transit. Items can easily be lost, especially paper files, so be sure you have had backups made of everything on electronic media and be sure sensitive information is kept in a secure file in the event something is misplaced.
When moving offices, a lot of equipment that has sat in one place for years is going to reveal just how much dust and dirt the custodians miss over time. You are going to get your hands dirty in the process. Your staff will appreciate being able to work comfortably and safely in casual attire, or even jeans, shorts, or t-shirts. This can be a great morale boost to see a Vice President rolling up their shirtsleeves to help. If you provide incentives such as random door prizes, coffee shop gift cards, or other morale-boosting perks, you will keep everyone engaged throughout an otherwise long and tedious process.
