- Discuss the problem
You’re moving to a new office because the current one is inadequate, less technologically advanced, and not creative enough and more. Since there exist a myriad of problems with the current office, prepare a sound pitch and orate it before everyone in your office. When everyone learns about the problem, they’ll support you in your decision and chances are they’ll try to suggest quality suggestions about the move-out.
When there’s a problem, by default, people get instigated to solve it, and this is why discussing it solves your problem as well.
- Include everyone
Generally, when you’re moving to a new office, the decision is always top to bottom. But approaching the problem with reverse psychology can be quite helpful here.
Firstly, you need a maximum number of people to correspond with you and the best approach to get this executed would be to ask the employees first as they’ll agree with you without you moving a muscle. So, go for it.
