Relocating your office is expensive enough, but it will be even more costly if the thought of moving to a new workplace causes anxiety and lack of productivity among your employees. This is a common occurrence that most companies have had to struggle with during a corporate move. Because of their desire to speed up the relocation of their office, these corporations often forget one crucial factor: employee productivity.
Here are three ways to address a recurring issue during a corporate move: lack of employee productivity.
Set a time for your employees to sort their personal work desk.
Give your employees time to set aside and organize their personal belongings and files that will be carried over to the new office location. An hour or two for two weeks at most should be enough for your employees to organize their things. If you don’t impose a specific timeframe, your employees will end up rushing their tasks or piling their files in between work hours, which should be allotted specifically for performing their work-related hours.
Communicate with your employees through and through.
According to the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program, communication plays an integral role in the success of any workplace program. Without question, an office relocation is an example of that. Put a premium in providing regular and open avenues for employees to voice their concerns. By doing this, your employees will stop speculating and they will feel all the more involved in the effort to make the office relocation as seamless and efficient as possible.
Inspire them with the features of their new workplace
Instead of stirring doubt and anxiety, why don’t you give them a glimpse of their fabulous new office? Conduct a communication campaign that will highlight the features of the new office and the improvements over their current workplace. Doing so will not only excite them but even motivate them to achieve their work goals.
At D.J. McGauley & Associates Inc we make sure that all factors will be accounted for when your business decides to move. This includes the possible resistance of your employees, undoubtedly one of your strongest assets and reasons for initiating a corporate move.

CORPORATE RELOCATIONS SPECIALIST D.J. MCGAULEY & ASSOCIATES LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE
Website to better reflect the company’s all-encompassing services
D.J. McGauley & Associates has launched a new and improved website and blog to better serve their clientele. Owner and Project Manager, Michael McGauley is proud of the website, which better reflects the company’s all-encompassing corporate relocation services as well as their ability to partner with and serve real estate agents across the GTA.
“Many people who visited our site before the re-launch would assume we are simply office movers. We would get calls a day or two before a corporate move, asking us to have everything – furniture, computer equipment, phone systems, etc – ready and operational by Monday morning. Of course, D.J. McGauley & Associates excels in this area but we can do so much more for a company if they simply call us sooner. We can make your entire relocation smooth because we understand everything from zoning to permits to renovations to security systems. We truly are the first call an organization needs to make when they have decided to relocate or even expand their existing office space,” said McGauley.
Through years of experience and know-how, D.J. McGauley & Associates has broken down the successful corporate relocation and expansion process into six steps: Find, Design, Build, Furnish, Move, and Maintain. This six-step process is incorporated into every aspect of their new website to further drive home the point that the actual moving of furniture and equipment is just one aspect of a successful corporate expansion. In addition, they have created a blog, the purpose of which is to interact with new and existing clients, providing a platform for questions to be asked and answered.
“To have a truly seamless relocation,” said McGauley, “it is important to be aware of the big picture as well as the little details that can make or break a move. I am confident our new website and blog will better reflect this philosophy.”
You can visit the new D.J. McGauley & Associates website at www.djmcgauleyandassociates.com, and their blog at corporaterelocationadvice.com.
