Moving house is a stressful time in anybody's life - but moving offices is equally stressful. Add a whole new way of working to the mix and it is brain freeze time!
That is something I had firsthand experience of this week as we moved from our old offices in Broadwick Street to our new office in Haymarket. Just a five-minute walk away, but a whole new world of working that's for sure.
For a start, we are now actively engaged in 'hotdesking' - something none of us journalists that make up the Incisive Media tech group are actually sure about. We have all written about it and heard about it, but never actually done it. Now we are. I am not going to say any more about that right now!
We have swanky-sounding technology to replace hard phones, and team members are being encouraged to work from home at least once a week.
As expected, day one was terrible - we had no phones, everybody came in so there was nowhere for everyone to sit, and the technology didn't quite work according to plan.
We are now coming to the end of the first week and things are settling down, but it hasn't been an easy experience for a bunch of stuck-in-their-ways hacks like us.
There are still a few teething problems with the phones - but these are being addressed, so if you call CRN and either get cut off, or can't get through, please bear with us. Always email if you are trying to get in touch as well until things smooth out.
