When you first look at moving into the office what are the basics that you need to have in place for it to be an immediate success?

  1. Wifi and telephones. If they can’t call in and you can’t call out or connect to the net then you might as well not bother opening in the first place. Make triple sure that you are connected and online to the office as priority.
  2. Have some office equipment in place. Gloucester Office Furniture firm supplier Severn Furnishing can be on hand to get that office looking exactly how you want it and to your specifications so that all that the staff have to do is turn up, sit down and get on with it.
  3. Make sure the staff know exactly where it is. It might seem like a small point but giving out a relocation pack to staff so that they can plan the new journey and find things like parking spaces if they are not provided or bus and cycle routes.

  1. Ensure that the decor is what you want. Everyone is sitting down, the phones are working and the computers are all online. The only problem is that the place looks like a building site. Even if you’ve got that bit down, the last thing that you and the staff want is someone with a ladder and a tin of teal paint coming in to do a wall.
