Organising a large company relocation
A business relocation can help larger companies get into more practical, bigger and more appropriate office space. But the task of actually getting there can be a huge undertaking for a larger organisation. All the more reason to be well organised and delegate some tasks to colleagues and external advisors to split the workload.
A larger company relocating will need an office space that has plenty of opportunity to expand as the business continues to grow, as well being flexible enough if the need to reduce staff members becomes a concern, so be sure to choose an office space that easily configures to future growth or contraction. If you’re looking to impress existing clients and draw in new customers then you will be looking for an office located in a handy city centre location or exclusive business park which will give your new relocation venture respect amongst piers. Enlist the help of a Property Consultant in your area who will know what’s on (or coming on) the market that matches your office space requirements.
Office Space Planning a large relocation will need a lot of careful consideration. Most large companies require a reception area to meet and greet clients as well as to provide a central point of contact for staff. You’ll need to work with a reputable Office Design Company who will draw up office space plans and advise on optimum location for workstations, IT equipment and other common areas.
Plan your Office Removals well in advance of your move date. Your Office Removals Company will inventory everything that needs to be transferred to the new office and they’ll tick each item off as it’s packed, so you can rest assured nothing will get left behind!
Finally, communicating with such a large number of staff about the office move will certainly be a challenge. Think about holding regular internal meetings with key department heads – and they in turn can update their staff. Have a section about the office move on the intranet with regular updates about the move and photos of the new office so everyone gets buy-in.
