Ever more moves
In 2011, more than 3,100 transactions were made in business property in Ile-de-France for a total floor area of roughly environ 2.4 million sqm. Mergers, restructuring plans, rent rises… More than ever, companies are motivated by the need to rationalize costs and try and make the most of available floor area by pooling their teams. Real estate is the second biggest cost item for companies after payroll.
A stressful event
“Relocation is a very stressful event” or even a traumatic event for many staff.”
It ii said to be the second cause of company disorganization after fire. The question of transport is central. “The initial reaction is to verify travel time”. One loses all one’s bearings. One has to take extreme precautions to avoid messing things up. And void rumours circulating, like: “Apparently there won’t be enough room for everyone in the new office.” The risk: low morale and a drop in productivity.
“Relocation issues are increasingly taken seriously by companies. They now communicate at each stage of the relocation process”. “One needs to explain to staff the benefits of the move: concierge service, day-care centre, car-sharing, new workspace… Increasingly, companies hold briefings, create a blog or an the Intranet event, or even organize virtual viewings of the new premises.”
It is in this context of rationalization and human consideration that BAILLY ENTREPRISE intervenes:
