STRESS MANAGEMENT HOW TO LESSEN STRESS DURING A RELOCATION

Relocating is a stressful process for individuals and families. The stress levels remain the same for businesses. It would sometimes result in having to stay in cramped areas and expensive areas longer than you expect. 

If you have been putting off your relocation, this article will help you organise the moving process and will lessen your stress. Here are our tips:

Planning

When it comes to relocating, you should plan everything months in advance, from the moving company to the office cleaners. Doing this will help relieve the stress on moving day. You also need to determine the exact moving date. You must have an hour-by-hour schedule for the said date.

Most importantly, you need to set a specific budget for the relocation. Ask yourself how much you are willing to pay the moving company. Doing this will prevent hasty decisions that are often expensive. 

Communicate

Communication solves a lot of problems. It is also the key to lessening your stress levels on relocation day. When it comes to communication in this scenario, it is not limited to the moving company. But you need to inform your staff too. 

Make sure that they are aware of the moving plans and the schedule. If there are changes, it is essential that you notify them right away. Here are a few things that you need to tell your team:

  • The new address or the revised phone and fax numbers
  • New building rules
  • Packing arrangements at the new location

Ask your team to create a moving list to ensure that nothing is left behind. Most of us do not want change. But communicating with your staff will make the transition smoother.

Assignment

To make the process smooth-sailing, it would be best if you assigned a project manager. He (or she) can be the liaison officer between your business and the moving company as well as the office cleaners. The success of this endeavour will greatly depend on their skills.

The question is who to assign for this project. You should delegate this task to someone that has excellent multi-tasking abilities, exceptional organisational skills, effective communication abilities and has experience working with budgets. They will make the transition seamless.

Protection

Most importantly, you should protect your assets, both tangible and client information. Considering that you are quite vulnerable during the relocation, you should have an alternative plan. It may mean creating a backup file.

Doing this will protect your data from loss during the relocation. One of the great things to do is to create a digital visitor management system to safeguard your visitor and staff data. This option is highly recommended by many experts because it is cloud-based. 

You should carefully research your options for data protection to ensure that your company is still aligned with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Doing this will prevent data loss.

Conclusion

Relocation is already stressful. But when you carry out the tips enumerated earlier will lessen the pressure. It will also make the transition smoother.
