You know you’re ready for a commercial move. Maybe you’re expanding and need more room, or you need to be closer to your customer base. If you’ve been putting it off until “next year” or “first quarter”, now’s the time to start planning. If moving your office is one of your new year’s resolutions, we’ve got some tips to help you follow through.
Decide a “Moving Day” and Work Backward
To get the moving process rolling, set a hard and fast “Moving Day”. This is the date that movers will come and you will officially be moved into your new office. This is often what keeps businesses from following through on their commercial moving goals. It’s a big step, but once you set your moving day, planning everything else becomes easier. Work backward from the moving day, listing all the steps you need to take before you move.
Set SMART Goals
SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Timely. If your goal is to move your office, make it more specific. Set realistic and achievable deadlines for each phase of the moving process, such as securing a new workspace, hiring a moving company and packing up offices.
Hold Your Employees and Yourself Accountable
Once you set your goals, hold yourself and any employees involved in the process accountable. Clearly communicate deadlines and expectations, and if they aren’t met, quickly address the parties involved to keep your commercial move on track.
Moving your office isn’t easy. It takes hard work, dedication and initiative to keep your office move on track and successful when Moving Day comes. The Quality Group can take some of the weight off of your shoulders with relocation planning and management.
