How to minimise staff disruption when relocating your office

They say that moving home is second only to divorce as the most stressful life event. So when moving offices to a new town or city, you will no doubt be met with some reservations and objections from your staff. There will inevitably be some upheaval for their family, a new home, new schools and possibly a new job for the partner, as well as an enormous amount of effort in organising the entire process.

How to minimise staff disruption when relocating your office

One way to minimise this stress, would be to hire a property professional who specialises in relocating employees and their families into new areas. This is what we do here at Premier Corporate Relocation Services.

How Premier Corporate Relocation Services can help relocate your staff

We take the hassle out of the process of moving for our clients and their employees. By taking away this stress the staff member can concentrate on their work and not be distracted by the ins and outs of organising their own move.

We discuss with the families their wants and needs and then organise an orientation drive to introduce the family to the area. We arrange viewings for properties which we have already vetted to ensure they match their requirements.

We also provide all the information on everything they need to know; education, medical and leisure. If the employee is coming from abroad, we advise on the many practical and cultural issues facing a foreign visitor. All this information can be organised from a distance, removing the need for the family to make multiple visits. The Premier Corporate Relocation Services team undertake the ground work and use our in depth knowledge of the area to make the system efficient and effective, both in terms of time and money.

Once a new home has been chosen, we act on behalf of the family to make the offer, secure the property and negotiate the terms of the tenancy or follow through to exchange and completion. For rental properties on moving-in day, we can check the inventory, organise the utilities and provide further information on local facilities and services.

Making the move as simple as possible, means the prospect of moving home is not quite so daunting and becomes a new adventure, resulting in fewer objections from staff to the move and less hours lost at work.
