White Paper: The Future of Meeting Rooms
The traditional meeting space is now adapting to suit the evolving needs of its users. What once was a large space with a long table, whiteboard, and presentation equipment, is now transforming into a more collaborative space. The ways that we meet are now changing, as are our meeting rooms.
As businesses start to adopt a dynamic way of working of home and office-based working, employers need to ensure that collaboration and connection between colleagues are seamless. State-of-the-art technology is essential to this.
Employees have reported that the overuse of video conferencing has left them feeling frustrated and disengaged during the COVID-19 global lockdowns. In a lot of cases, there is a feeling that virtual meetings, while effective, have taken the fun and valued engagement out of interacting with colleagues and clients.
With remote working playing an increasingly important long-term roles for many, businesses are now looking to identify technology solutions that improve user interaction and help workers engage with each other in a more natural and frictionless way. Businesses should be able to have people in the meeting room talking to others and joining remotely as natural as possible, as if there were all sat beside each other. This means investing in high quality solutions that enable better sound and video quality.
The number of co-workers spread across different multiple sites and geographical locations, or working from home is increasing, and more companies are choosing to adopt this structure for their workforce.
This white paper explores how meeting spaces are changing to suit our needs; looking at the technologies that are boosting productivity, collaboration and providing cost effective alternatives for dynamic and remote working businesses. Within this paper we will explore what makes an effective working environment, and the impact a modern work environment has to productive working and employee wellbeing.
