What is Move Management?

Move management is the process of moving one or more employees from one location to another or in and out of your organization. Organizations experience moves all the time. Whether adapting to company growth, moving entire teams to a new location or relocating individuals, it’s important to manage the process from start to finish.

The challenge in some organizations is relying on outdated models. The most notable and common example of this is using spreadsheets to manually track the move process. This type of manual approach is tedious, pulling employees away from more strategic tasks, and prone to error, resulting in inaccurate occupancy and space usage data.

Managing moves is expensive and risky...

Moves can be highly disruptive to business as usual. For this reason, it’s important to have a system in place to minimize the downtime, confusion and chaos that can come from office or facility moves.

They can also be extremely cost-intensive. In just one example, moving a 2,000-person organization cost an astonishing $500,000 in lost productivity and operational costs. A well-run move can cut costs up to 83%.This saves all organizations time and money, as employees are up and running faster with less lost productivity.

Case Study: Boston University

When Boston University started the process of searching for a new Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS), they had a strong vision for what it needed to do. Because the decision would have wide-reaching implications for the entire University, key stakeholders were involved, forming a highly engaged and collaborative initiative. Participants included IT, Financial Operations, Office of the Budget, General Accounting, Housing, Provost of the Medical Campus and the Registrar’s office–anyone who needed space, used space, assigned space, or was responsible for maintaining it, came together to ensure the initiative was successful.
