After finding a team of quality commercial movers on MovingCost.com, you quickly moved ahead with your plans to move your office to Charlotte, NC. Now just a few weeks later, your office move is complete and you’re ready to get back to work. We’ve come up with some tips to get your entire company on track in a new city.
Pressure Your Employees
After moving to a new location, employees have a tendency to victimize themselves a bit. Sure, moving to a new city is tough and everyone needs time to adjust. However, there’s no reason why anyone should need more than a few days off from work to get settled into their new neighborhood. Let it be known that you’re determined to take the new market by storm and you expect them to be ready to work hard.
Make Things Comfortable
Once your staff does return to work, make sure that they are happy with the setup of the new office. If certain employees are accustomed to working together and/or sitting next to each other, allow them to move their computers if needed to reunite. By keeping the design and layout of the office similar to the old one, your employees will begin to feel comfortable before you know it. It’s no secret that people work harder and are more engaged when they can truly relax.
Sell Your Services
After you move to a new city, you can’t just open your doors and expect people to rush in by the dozens. As a matter of fact, a lot of people may not even known that you’re open for business at all. That’s why it’s up to you to go out in the city and introduce yourself to the locals. You might want to start by throwing a grand opening event where you can recruit potential customers and hand out as many business cards as you can print up. Before you can have a successful business, you have to make it relevant and discussion-worthy in the community.
Have a Party
We know exactly what you’re about to ask us. How will throwing a company party possibly help you get back to being productive and making money? Well, give us a chance to break it down for you. After a long move, everyone will be a bit tense. Some of your employees will be missing their family members back at home. Meanwhile, others will have some trouble adjusting to a new way of life in Charlotte. That’s why you should throw a fun weekend barbeque or a formal dinner so everyone can just come together and have a good time. When a group of coworkers really gel, their dynamic in the office will be something special.
