Moving offices: how to get it right – web chat

While moving to new digs are often a sign of a successful, growing company, there’s still a lot to consider - Bloomberg Finance

Join us and a panel of experts on Wednesday 10 May from 12pm BST to discuss how to relocate office, or move to a new one, avoiding those pesky pitfalls along the way.

Phones, desks, chairs, kettles, biscuit tins – packing up and moving an office is exhausting, time-consuming and often costly.

Even when the office manager (or whichever team member is managing the move at the time) has ensured that goods make it from
A to B successfully, the trouble doesn’t always end there.

What if John from accounts is furious that his desk is further from a window than at the old place? What about that extra 20 minutes added to Carol’s commute? What about IT infrastructure and appropriate breakout areas?

While moving to new digs are often a sign of a successful, growing company, there’s still a lot to consider.

For example, when taking on a new space, it’s important to make sure that you’ve asked the right questions about your lease, and communicated the move effectively with your team. And if it’s the first premises that your company has taken on, where do you even start with researching the issue?

Join us and a panel of experts on Wednesday 10 May from 12-2.30pm to discuss how to avoid office-move pitfalls.
