Key Internal Messages

The key messages regarding the company move should involve the timing, packing, office closures, new office layout, and details about the new location.

  • Timeline: Make sure you list all the key steps of the move so everyone knows what to expect and when.
  • Packing instructions: Provide staff with instructions on how to pack their offices or cubicles for the move. This should include where to get packing materials, what they are responsible for packing, and deadlines.
  • Advanced notice of any office closures: During the move, you may need to close the office to enable the final packing and moving of office equipment and furniture. Make sure your staff is aware of these dates and if and how the business will continue during the move and how this will affect their work schedule and workload.
  • New office plan: Staff will want to know early on what the new space will look like and how the offices will be set up. Will they still have their own space or will they now be in a cubicle or open floor plan? Make sure you create a way to inform staff of how their work space might change.
  • The new location, parking, and commute options: Provide staff with all the information they need about the new location so that they can prepare transportation to the new space.
