When you are running a business, every day is equally important. You cannot afford to shut down your business for a few days simply because you have to move. However, sometimes a move is unavoidable for various reasons, such as you need a bigger place, or your business would run better. Regardless of the reason for the move, you need to ensure that your business doesn’t lose its productivity.
Here are some tips to help you move your business without losing productivity.
Plan everything in advance
First, you must ensure that your corporate relocation goes smoothly. You must strategically plan everything you need to do for the move, including packing, moving, and arranging alternatives. You also need to consider how much downtime to expect due to the move and what you can do to make up for fit.
Hire professional help
A business move is complex and time-consuming, and you cannot hope to get it done quickly and efficiently without experts by your side. Hire a credible corporate relocation company in your location for the job. Ensure they are suitable for the job by checking their license, customer reviews, references, and communication style.
Prepare your employees
Your employees are responsible for the total productivity of your business. Without them on your side, you cannot make things work. The best way to boost employee morale and prepare them for the move is to inform them ahead of time. You can consider their concerns and involve them in the moving activities to make them feel included. Discuss with them how you plan to keep everything running during the move and how they can help.
Notify other stakeholders and finish formalities
After informing the employees, you need to inform other stakeholders in your business, such as your customers, stakeholders, suppliers, and others. You also need to change your address at all places to the new ones and ask the mailing company to redirect your mails to the new address. It will ensure that no important document or information is lost due to a change in the office location.
Have a backup plan
You need to have a backup plan to ensure you don’t lose productive hours due to the move. You need to arrange for temporary working space for the duration of the location. Make arrangements for the internet and other essentials your business would need to keep running. Have some additional funds to cover any unexpected costs or expenses that can happen during the move. You can also offer temporary work from home to your employees to prevent disruptions if that is feasible for your business.
