Company Relocation Plan
Planning a Company Relocation
It an exciting time when your company decides to relocate office, and quite often, it can be just what your business needs to boost staff morale, improve overall performance and give the best first impression to clients. But of course, relocating your company also means that a lot of planning and preparation needs to be done to get your company moved efficiently and before you can reap any of the benefits.
Having a company relocation plan is probably the most important part of any office relocation process. Not only will it provide you with a clear direction of all the tasks you will need to co-ordinate, it also helps you to manage your entire Office Move Team and oversee the entire company relocation from start to finish.
The first and most important step in your company relocation is to choose the right Office Relocation Professionals to work with you and carry out the key stages of your office move. Once you have found dependable Office Relocation Companies to work with, you must then work together to ensure deadlines, budgets and overall company objectives are agreed . These include:
Establishing Key Dates
There are 3 key dates that will drive your office move:
1. End date of current office lease
2. Date by which termination needs to be given
3. Target date to be in new office
Make sure you know them and that you stay on top of them!
Company Relocation Budget
You will need to establish a rough Company Relocation Budget which will need to be approved by Senior Management at the very outset of your company relocation. Setting budgets can be a little daunting by most – that’s why we’ve created the Moving Office Budget Template which sets out all the necessary expenditure your company is likely to spend. Start by getting quotes from the relevant Office Relocation Service providers and you will soon start to establish a Company Relocation Budget Plan.
Involving your Staff
Staff should be at the heart of any company relocation. You’ll need to keep them abreast with what’s going on and communicate regularly with your relocation plans. Keep your reasons about your company relocation consistent (and positive!) as any negative vibes can soon get out of control which can hamper staff productivity during and after the move.
Use the free Office Relocation Project Plan as a framework to establish your own Company Relocation Plan. It makes an ideal starting point which you can then start to “flesh out” and apply it to your own company relocation.
