Moving the contents of a small shop is already stressful. Imagine moving an entire company with at least 100 employees, that’s ten times the stress.
Although the process seems difficult, it’s not impossible at all. It may not even be stressful. Follow these 3 easy ways on how to move a company:
Plan Your Move
Do not move a company without a relocation plan. Never. That would mean financial and productivity losses. As with any business initiative, follow a strategic plan when moving.
This means you need to plot the schedule and identify the activities related to moving. Start with preparing the new company office. Make sure the outlets and wires are in place prior to moving. This is also the best time to map out the work areas – which department will be occupying which floor.
Also, it’s best to move by batch. Do not move everything at once because more likely, it will entail work interruption. If you have machines, also transport them by batch so you have active machines left while the others are being transported.
Delegate Moving Responsibilities
Delegation allows empowerment. Employees will feel they’re part of the company’s new direction and this is something good. First and foremost, gather all department heads and key personnel. Get them involved in the planning as they may also add relevant insights. After all, they know the needs of their department better than you do.
These leaders will do the cascading of information to their staff. They can schedule their tasks accordingly without compromising deadlines; look after their own department’s tools and equipment; and categorize the department’s property according to relevance.
What you only need to do is to harmonize the schedules, so that the moving is smooth.
