Returning to the office post-COVID 19… Are you looking to downsize or reconfigure your office space?

After a long period of juggling remote working with home life (and perhaps childcare), it’s almost September and many of your team will be returning to the workplace. What should they expect? Will your team be excited about being back in the office, or have they become accustomed to remote working? What does your post-COVID 19 #newnormal look like and does your current office set up support it? You have a lot to consider! So, where do you begin?.....

It is undoubtedly the perfect time to consider downsizing, using your current office space more creatively or even selling up altogether and renting office space/conference rooms on demand instead. Whatever your business or team size, this is an unmissable opportunity to reduce your overheads, improve team engagement and increase productivity.

Perhaps your team can work remotely and only come to the office once per week to meet face to face? Or maybe, you can rotate staff to reduce the number of people in the office at any one time? Is it possible that the entire team only need to come together for design thinking sessions and important community meetings? There are so many possibilities, only you can decide what will work best for you and your team.

Whether you will be shuffling staff while you reconfigure your current office space, or moving to entirely new premises, in our experience, there is one part of the overall change programme that is often underestimated…. the physical move of office furniture, IT equipment and personal belongings.

The office move always feels like a relatively straight forward task compared to the rest of the change programme, however, there is a lot that could go wrong and the cost of disruption to your business could be significant.

Why give yourself a headache? Why not get some professional support and make it a stress-free, slick, exciting experience for everyone involved? You may think using a professional Move Manager is an unnecessary luxury, however, it's not as expensive as you might expect and is essential if you want to avoid disruption to your business. It will allow you and your team to remain focused on your core business and most importantly, hit the ground running immediately after the move.

At Curious Giraffes, our professional Move Managers can design and manage a detailed move programme which covers planning, preparation, actual move, and aftercare. You will be kept fully up to date and involved in key decision making, giving you the assurance to let us take care of the rest. We tailor our programmes to suit your requirements and budget.
