Moving office is an exciting time for all and, if done correctly, can be a real fillip for your business. It represents the start of something new and brings with it the opportunity to introduce new technologies and working practices which can, in turn, bring about an increase in productivity, morale and momentum. This is all good.
However, it is also true that, if done poorly, an office move can end up being one of the most stressful events a company has to go through – littered with costly mistakes that could have been avoided.
You cannot afford your office move to distract from day-to-day business which is why it is important to recognise that your move is not just a project for your facilities or operations team. A successful move requires input and communication from all areas of your company – and has to include a deep involvement from IT.
Most companies have little experience managing office relocation which is why we’ve developed our best practice checklists to guide you through the process.
