A Step-by-Step Guide for Planning a Group Move in 2020

When a company needs to relocate ten or more employees from the same origin to the same destination, it is called a group move. There are a number of reasons why a business might need to plan a group move, such as when a company is merging with or acquiring another company, consolidating facilities, moving offices, adding new territories, or creating new lines of products. 

Group moves are more complex than moving just a few people, so it is important to plan ahead and take into account the employees’ feelings and concerns about the move. With proper planning, a group move can be a successful way to leverage human capital and attract top talent.

When planning a group move, it’s important to think things through carefully and announce the details to employees as early as possible (but not too early – you want to avoid not having the answers when your employees start asking questions). By doing so, you can ensure that everyone is on the same page and that potential problems are dealt with before they become an issue. 

Additionally, it’s important to be clear about the reasons behind the move and how it will benefit the company as a whole. By following these best practices, you can ensure that your group move goes off without a hitch.
