After being bought out by a large corporation several years ago my employer went through round after round of downsizing layoffs when the economy went south. Our in house staff of over 100 is now down to less than 50. Entire departments were done away with leaving sections of our leased building empty and depressing. The owner of the building does no upgrades or maintenance and we have been turned down by our corporate office for any request for facility updates and even repairs unless they are of dire need. Ignoring our request to relocate to a smaller more modern space when our lease ended, Our corporate overlords renewed instead so we will be in our oversized rundown building for at least another 5 years with no intention of growing our workforce or subleasing any of the excess space. We have been socking desks, file cabinets, conference tables, and many other items away in our warehouse and it is filling up fast. Work on the building would have to be done on a volunteer basis and at this point i completely understand why our Employees do not want to donate their free time to a job they may not have next month... Any suggestions on what we can do to not only get rid of the items filling our warehouse, but also to update our workspace? One manager suggested a "parking lot sale" since we are located in a prime spot off a busy road. My concern here is I'm sure with this method we would have to record any profit as revenue. This would get rid of the items, but we would still not get to use the profit how we want plus we would have to ask employees to once again volunteer time to man the sale... Does anyone have any experience or suggestions?
