7 Things to Leave Behind When Your Company Decides to Relocate

If your office is moving here are 7 things you need to remember to leave behind when you go. There's no need for sentimentality and there's no time like the present to get your company back up and running in this century.

Excess Paper: The tug of old-world/new-technology is nowhere more present than in all the paper we have been lugging around for decades. Maybe it's important; likely it's not; even if it is it's all been backed up in the cloud or on external hard drives multiple times. Let it go!

Excess Files: How many external hard drives do you have? How many of these are duplicate, triplicate or more? It's worth it for you to have a look at all this and see about paring down what can be.

Old Tech: How about some of the things which have could be classified as "old-tech"? Your pager? Your old old old first shoulder-mounted cell phone? It's time for all this to go! It may have a great place in a museum somewhere but not in your newly relocated office.

Non-VoIP: Business phone and internet are here to stay. Phones which exist on the public switch telephone network (PSTN) are yesterday's news. If you have your VoIP phone system then the old can go. If you haven't upgraded your business phone and internet system, now's the time!

Broken: How many items have you held onto in your office that aren't just old but are actually broken? Old copy machines, fax machines, and the like; why don't you just get rid of that stuff? Broken, unusable items have no place in your fresh, modern, new office!

Food: While you all may be betting on who will be the first person to eat that old holiday cake, there's no need to continue to bring it with you in your new office. If you haven't already this new move may be the perfect time to implement some new procedures for leaving old food in company fridges.

Inhibitions: The final and more esoteric of the things you need to leave behind in your old office are your guarded inhibitions. You are your own best friend and your own worst enemy when it comes to making sure that you approach each new day with conviction.
