5 Tasks to help you Feel at Home in your New Office
How to Feel at Home in your New Office
Moving into a new office should be an exciting experience, but it's not always easy for some businesses to make the transition to a new working environment.
Here are five key tasks you need to get done to help you and your staff feel quickly adjusted in your new office space:
1. Get it Cleaned
Before you carry out your office removals and move in, you need to get the office looking spic and span. This will help to clear the floor for your office removals company arriving to unload your office items to their correct location. Once boxes have been unpacked, it will probably need another dust over before staff arrive so your new office has an orderly and clean feel about it. A great first impression for visitors and your staff.
2. Office Fit-Out Snagging Issues
Once everyone's got their feet under the table, there are bound to be some snagging issues to make everyone feel more comfortable and put the finishing touches on your new office design. Make a "snagging list" and give it to your Office Fit-Out Company who will make any adjustments.
3. Technology & Communication Issues
Moving IT and technology equipment can be one of the most contentious issues when a business relocates. IT equipment is highly to its environment and you will want to ensure all your communication equipment is working as it should to avoid any disruption to business. If you are using an IT Relocation Company to transfer your IT equipment to the new office, they will remain on site until all computer systems are fully operational and snagging issues are resolved.
4. Orientation Tours
If you have moved to offices in a new town or city, staff may need help in orientating themselves to the new vicinity. Provide welcome packs to each staff member with information about the new office facilities and local amenities. This will help to get them quickly settled and ensure that productivity does not suffer as a result of an unfamiliar environment.
5. Get Staff Feedback
Staff feedback is important and should be considered a valuable way to assess the success of your new office, design and layout. Asking them for feedback about their individual workstation set-up, floor plan or other new office issues will ensure they feel valued and also help you to make the necessary adjustments to the space to help them carry out their tasks more efficiently.
