Obstacles and risks faced during real estate changes

The world is continually changing, and so is the way we work.

Whether employees are remote, onsite, or hybrid, many organisations are rethinking their office spaces and work processes to create working environments that promote collaboration, improve engagement, encourage innovation, and increase satisfaction.

Planning for and executing these real estate changes, however, isn’t always easy. Obstacles such as file cabinets, obsolete IT assets, furniture, and cluttered employee workstations can take up valuable space, create risk, decrease productivity, and make project execution difficult.

Overcome these obstacles and risks; unlock the full potential of your workplace with Clean Start

Clean Start

Years of normal operations and employee turnover can leave the workplace cluttered and disorganised.

In addition to negatively impacting productivity, collaboration, and space usage, employees may not be motivated to return to and work from a messy office.

A recent study from the Economist indicates that 93% of organisations are ready to clean up legacy information assets; however, executing a cleanup project in-house could consume valuable resources and even lead to the risk of data breach.

Our Clean Start experts can help you maximise your space and reduce clutter through the secure and sustainable consolidation or recycling of:

  • Paper records
  • File cabinets
  • Outdated IT assets
  • Employee workstations
  • Other information assets
  • Office equipment

Moving or restacking an office space can be stressful, and the last thing you need is the risk of exposing your organisation to a data breach during project execution.

Unfortunately, confidential information located in filing cabinets, storage closets, and at employee workstations not only creates risk, but also wastes valuable space.

While some organisations turn to traditional moving or real estate services companies for help, most don’t have the expertise, trained, and vetted employees, or secure chain of custody to handle paper records, IT assets, and other sensitive materials.

Iron Mountain Clean Start can help with a complete set of services that you need for a successful move or restack, all under a single vendor and following our unique approach to project planning and execution:

Clean Start can support a successful and secure move or restack project execution while also helping you optimise space usage in your new or refreshed workplace.

As employee work habits evolve, so does the need for physical office space.

A recent CBRE survey found that 87% of corporate real estate leaders are focused on portfolio optimisation as a top priority; however, closing an office location is never as simple as turning the lights off and locking the doors.

Sensitive information assets located throughout the facility, often commingled with personal employee items and office equipment, can expose your organisation to a data breach if not properly handled and managed.

While traditional moving companies and real estate service companies can support office closure projects, most don’t have the expertise, trained and vetted employees, or secure chain of custody to correctly handle and manage your organisation’s most valuable assets.

  • Pack, move, and store records offsite
  • Securely shred outdated documents
  • Decommission furniture, fixtures, and equipment
  • Disposition or remarket obsolete IT assets
  • Move furniture and equipment from site to site
  • Sort, pack, and move employee workstations
  • Store pallets and equipment offsite
  • Move and/or store artwork

Best of all, Iron Mountain can provide all these services and more under a single vendor with our unique approach to planning and executing your office closure.

Global merger and acquisition (M&A) activity is experiencing record levels as companies look to leverage M&A to drive transformational change, per a recent Deloitte survey.

Real estate portfolio optimisation and merger and acquisition (M&A) activity are experiencing record activity levels as companies look to identify synergies and cost savings, and drive transformational change.

However, portfolio-wide real estate initiatives and M&A integration can be impeded by obstacles such as widely dispersed facility locations, large volumes of files or other assets, and conflicting processes and tools for sharing and protecting information.

Turn to Iron Mountain Clean Start to successfully navigate portfolio-wide real estate initiatives and M&A activity. With experts and resources located throughout the world, our team can help to:

  • Dispose or recycle obsolete or redundant assets
  • Unite compliance and retention policies
  • Eliminate stand-alone processes and policies
  • Securely close unneeded office locations
  • Identify and address security breach risks
  • Adapt to a digital future across the organisation

Whether you need support for a single office or a standardised process to support the integration or closure of multiple locations, turn to Iron Mountain to simplify project management under one vendor.

What are the risks of workplace transformation?

Years of normal operations and employee turnover can leave the workplace cluttered and disorganised. Confidential information and assets located in filing cabinets, storage closets, and at employee workstations not only creates risk, but also wastes valuable space.

While traditional moving companies and real estate service companies can support office closure projects, most don’t have the expertise, trained and vetted employees, or secure chain of custody to correctly handle and manage your organisation’s most valuable assets as you make changes to your real estate.

How can workplace transformation support my organisation’s shift to hybrid work practices?

While traditional moving companies and real estate service companies can support office closure projects, most don’t have the expertise, trained and vetted employees, or secure chain of custody to correctly handle and manage your organisation’s most valuable assets as you make changes to your real estate.

While working virtually, employees will expect easy and quick access to both digital and physical information, in addition to tools that facilitate seamless collaboration. 

Wherever or however they work, it’s important that organisations stay in tune with employees’ preferences and industry best practices as they transform their workplace.
