Tips to help you settle into your new office
When all the boxes are unpacked and the hustle and bustle of moving excitement and stress has calmed down, it’s important to get yourself settled
If you’ve moved to a new office, particularly in a new location, you’ll be eager to do all you can to settle in as quickly as possible. Uprooting your business can be stressful enough, but feeling as though you’re back at square one in terms of your business network is never fun. However, considering the impact an office relocation will have on your company and employees can turn things around in no time.
Perhaps the most important consideration is whether you’ve moved to a new city and how this will change the dynamic of your company. You might be moving regions and need to assimilate to new clientele and ways of working with them. The character of a city and its people will reflect differently on your business. Thinking about these changes before you make the office move can only be a positive thing for your company and can minimise any teething pains in your new location.
For example, relocating from a city to a suburban industrial estate can mean you’re cut off from amenities, but it might provide a quieter environment with fewer distractions. With an office move comes new surroundings, which can mean your office itself feels very different. Take a moment to think how you will acclimatise to your new workspace – a little mental preparation beforehand can go a long way.
