The business sector has seen tremendous change over the past two years. Where some industries are downsizing their overhead costs with more remote employment, others are expanding to newer locations. No matter your company’s strategic goals, a corporate relocation entails careful planning and execution.
One of the biggest aspects of a corporate relocation is how to address your current AV technology needs given your new space. Moving to a new office is the perfect time to reinvigorate your space while offering employees necessary upgrades to enhance productivity. If a corporate relocation is in your company’s future, here are a few things you can do to prepare your AV tech to run as smoothly as possible.
- 1. Survey Your Staff
- Before choosing new systems, always ask your staff their opinions on the current AV technology and solutions your company uses. Are there any “must-haves” that should follow to the new location? How about any weaknesses that could be filled with new and improved equipment? Asking your staff will ensure your organization is prepared while also building trust among your team that their input is valid and heard. Once you have an understanding of the needs of your staff, you can begin to create a strategy that benefits collaboration.
- 2. Understand the New Space
- New offices require new AV design and equipment. While balancing the needs of your employees and your company, it’s important to have a full understanding of the new space. Consider things like window placement, office circulation, and the size of the team that will occupy the space. All of these considerations will have implications on the types and designs of AV technology you will need. For example, where will be the best place for a remote-meeting room? Or how much space will you delegate to a virtual training room? Assessing your needs against the space you have to work with will aid in your strategic planning, resulting in more efficient uses of your time and monetary resources.
- 3. Plan for the Future
- While it may be easy to get caught up in the “here-and-now” of your corporate relocation, it’s equally important to keep an eye on what’s soon to come. For example, are there any big initiatives you can see launching in the next few years? Investing in upgraded AV technology now could save you the time and hassle of future renovations.
