This past summer, we posted a blog offering 4 tips for Relocating Your Business. In This post, we are going a step further and providing you with these instant time and money saving tips when you move your company. So, let’s dive right in.
Create Team Leaders For A Less Stressful Way To Move Your Company
Don’t try to do everything yourself. Even if you run a small company, delegating tasks is a great way to ensure a successful move for your business. Depending on the size and structure of your company, you may delegate tasks in a variety of ways.
One example is to divide your employees into smaller groups and appoint 1 leader for each group. This person will be charged with providing all necessary information to group members such as moving dates and procedures, how to communicate with clients, where to park at the new location and so on. Also, group leaders can be available to answer questions and this will alleviate a ton of stress for you.
On the other hand…
If you have fewer employees but a large number of vendors to deal with, it may be more efficient to appoint leaders to be in charge of different aspects of the move. For example, one person may be in charge of communicating with your commercial movers, while another is in charge of dealing with the IT Company.
Use The Move As An Opportunity To Enhance Your Online Presence
We can all agree that the world of online marketing is now essential to any successful business. So, don’t think of moving your company as time wasted, instead look at it as a chance to reach new customers and get your name out there.
Here are a few examples of how your can take advantage of moving your business and maybe even make money:
- Generate buzz on social media
- Ask one of your employees to document the move and post a video blog to share with partners and clients
- Enhance online visibility with a Press Release announcing your move
- Offer an exciting promotional deal to celebrate moving to a new location
Celebrate Moving To A New Office
Let’s face it, moving an office can be frustrating, to say the least. But the fact is when your employees are happy they will work harder for you. One guaranteed way to increase company morale during stressful times is to provide some sort of light at the end of the tunnel, like a fun party to celebrate once the move is complete.
Another way to do this could be to allow employees the option to work from home during the transition. Or you could come up with a contest to determine the best design for the new office decor. The opportunities are endless here, so get creative cause a happy employee is a productive one!
