MAKE YOUR EMPLOYEES FEEL PART OF THE RELOCATION PROCESS

If you're about to move offices, you'll already know it can divide staff. Some feel highly motivated, and excited about the change, others may feel unsettled and resistant.

Understanding how staff feel about such a move is the first step in planning your communications. And being aware that there are risks as well as rewards.

Any form of organization change can unsettle staff, particularly when the impact on them is unclear. Concerns can result in decreased morale and productivity.

That’s why effective office move communication is essential. It minimizes uncertainty and fear among staff, smoothing disruptions so that moving day is a true cause for celebration.

TOOLS TO MANAGE OFFICE MOVE COMMUNICATION

Moving premises is so important and multi-layered that it demands communications to match. Combine SnapComms channels to build a customized communication platform that meets all your needs and helps you get a move on.

Video alerts vividly showcase the new location and can feature your CEO or senior manager on-site to demonstrate leadership commitment.

Newsletters provide more detail around key highlights, such as transport options, sustainability or how the new location provides a better environment for growth and expansion.

Screensavers raise interest by featuring images of new layouts or attractions nearby. They can also include countdown clocks to build anticipation and links to more detail on your intranet.

A staff quiz can improve employee engagement by allowing everyone to submit suggestions for the new office and have a say in the outcome.

TAKE YOUR OFFICE MOVE COMMUNICATIONS TO NEW HEIGHTS

The SnapComms platform includes features designed to improve the effectiveness of your office move communications, ensuring every employee is in the know. 

  • Set up staff groups to target messages for greater relevance and higher readership. If your office move is staggered, different teams may be on different move schedules and have varying access to the new location. Targeting communications ensures teams receive highly relevant information only.
  • Pre-configure and schedule communications for every stage of the move. Set up desktop alerts or scrolling desktop tickers in advance to remind staff of important deadlines, such as updating contact information, packing up personal effects, applying for new security passes and booking car parks.
  • Personalize your dedicated office move comms with logo or special branding, for instant recognition by staff and distinction from messages on other topics.
  • Real time reporting to identify readership at employee or team level, providing assurance that all staff are being reached.
