Moving is one of the most stressful situations, especially when you don’t have experience or time. Everyone who has moved knows all the tasks ahead and they can feel the goosebumps just by thinking about it; but imagine for a moment living the experience of executing corporates move.
The idea is not to turn this into a nightmare, but a bearable reality, as long as it is carried out with responsibility, organization and, above all, patience, for it not to impact on the work climate.
The key to a move (every kind of move), is planning, an aspect that applies to life itself. Scheduling the activities for the moving will mark the steps to be taken, the time for their implementation and the various objectives to accomplish. Not that it will be a military and rigorous plan, but a guide to make all members of the company know what, how and when they will do the work.
The person in charge of the move must assign the tasks to those who make up the team, evaluate throughout the process and tell you if you’re going the right way or if you should consider new methods.
A good idea is to suggest hiring a moving company to do the heavy work, with enough professional knowledge to make the change without collateral damage that, ultimately, can affect the future of the company.
Remember that stress is a dangerous and easily contagious enemy!
Chat with your employees and if it is a company that has a Human Resources area, implement a strategy to have a unique discourse to generate confidence and calm.
Take into consideration that the day-to-day life of employees will change with the change of location, and the idea of a completely different routine brings insecurity. With conciliatory language you can instill calm.
Think about the opportunity this transfer gives you, extendable for the clients you have, whom you must notify in time to let them know so they don’t visit you at the old address and to send the documents to your next destination.
