Huddle Space Benefits
Huddle rooms are an essential part of today’s modern workplace and bring with them a number of advantages that will help to enhance collaboration and improve decision making.
- User friendly – Huddle rooms are designed to be simple to use. As a space that can be utilised by numerous different people doing numerous different things, it’s essential that there is little to no learning curve when it comes to the technology within them. By opting for intuitive interfaces, often ones that work like consumer devices, you can create a space that simply lets employees get on with doing their jobs.
- Flexible – This simplicity also makes huddle rooms flexible. By having only a small inventory of core collaboration technology, the rooms can be utilised in a number of different ways. From quick 1-1 catch-ups and briefings between remote and local employees to unscheduled ideas-sharing between colleagues and a quiet space for individual work, the huddle room can accommodate this and more.
- Cost-effective – In recent years many expensively kitted out meeting rooms have been under utilised as working practices have changed and enterprises have moved away from hosting large numbers of formal meetings. The huddle room is perfectly suited to today’s working practices and requires a lot less investment than boardrooms.
- Increases productivity – Huddles only happen when there is a need for them; huddle rooms should be used when needed to solve specific problems or achieve specific goals. By going into a huddle room with a clear idea of what needs to be achieved and only those people present who can help to achieve that aim, meetings will run more smoothly and be more targeted, leading to increased efficiency.
- Use your real estate more effectively – By definition, huddle rooms are small spaces, making them a great way to optimise under-utilised areas of your office. To get started with a huddle room all you need is a video conferencing system, and a previously unused area can become an effective collaboration space. Not only that but as huddle rooms will inevitably be the preferred space for many employees, especially those who need to share ideas with their immediate team on a regular basis, this will mean larger spaces and boardrooms are no longer wasted on small catch-ups and instead will be available for larger meetings when needed.
