How to Announce to Your Workers that You are Relocating the Office

Leaving the office entirely can never be regarded from your employees as a 100% positive event, no matter if it is because the business is going well and you are expanding.

It is very hard for the humans to adapt to a new working environment fast without changing their working habits and productivity within the first few days.This is why it is important that you have prepared them for that step a few weeks in advance. Here are a few successful tactics to do that:

-Ask your secretary to book in a house removals London company for a certain date. then she will be the first one to know about the
future event and will tell at least a few more people in the company about it within the next few hours, especially if you tell her not to spread it out.

-Make a brief meeting with some refreshments after work to announce it to everyone out loud just a few days after. Even if some of your workers dislike it the refreshments will help them accept it easier. This is a very old HR trick that works every time.

-After everyone is aware of what is about to happen give them a map, the new address, keys and entrance cards for the new building and a floor plan showing where each of them will be located. Of course, that will take you a bit more time to prepare but it is worth the struggle as your employees will feel more than important because of the effort that you have made.

-Involve them in the removals – ask all men to help the removal firm London agency that you have booked with the loading process and all the women to help after the transportation to arrange and distribute the labelled belongings in the packing boxes to the right desks.Good luck and remember to smile!
