In many organisations, an internal move (change of workstations in the same building) might be considered as a “simple” change.
To be attributed a workspace means a lot to an employee! A separate office or an open-space desk, close to or far away from the managing director, with much or not much light… there are many details by which your employees identify or define (rightly or not) their place in your organisation.
A simple move often reveals the tensions and the frustrations felt by your teams. A move, if it is not accompanied with clear and structured communication, can be perceived as a break.
And what would they think if the move was more substantial: if you have to change building, district/region, if your employees see their workplace moving further away from their place of residence…
It can never be said enough: for your employees, there is no small change!
