Meeting room tech
This recommendation contributes to improvements in Social Group and Spaces
Meetings are essential to effective collaboration in the workplace — and there are 25 million of them happening every day in the U.S. alone. According to a study by Bain & Company, organizations spend about 15% of their time in meetings. For upper management, that number can be as high as 50%.
Meeting technology has emerged as a critical technology in the COVID and post-COVID era. It is critical to optimize the integration and ease of use into meeting spaces.
At a basic level, provide adequate WIFI access to employees and visitors, enable quick set up for meetings. Power modules should be located to accommodate the typically short cord lengths of devices, so people do not assume unsafe postures (e.g., bending, stooping) when plugging in. The use of projection and video conference technology should work adequately when needed.
