BLOG__What-Are-Some-Keys-to-Having-Successful-Remote-Meetings

Remote work is the future. Large companies like Apple, Amazon, IBM, and Intuit have embraced remote work and its benefits. But that doesn’t mean that remote work doesn’t come with its fair share of challenges. One of the most common complaints about remote work is that it hinders communication and collaboration.   Whether your team is fully remote or some of your employees happen to be working from home on a particular day, running an effective remote meeting is easier said than done. It’s simpler to communicate with people face-to-face because you can gauge their reactions and how they are feeling.   Typically, in-person meetings are perceived as being more productive than remote meetings, but it is possible to have an effective remote meeting with the

Huddle Rooms: Where Teamwork Makes the Dreamwork

BLOG__Huddle-Rooms-Where-Teamwork-Makes-the-Dreamwork

Collaboration is essential in today’s business environment. It enables teams to be quicker and more effective in achieving shared goals. Most traditional office environments are not conducive to collaboration, however.

That being said, open offices aren’t a great alternative either. Open offices have been popularized in recent years with the hopes that they would foster spontaneous collaboration, but studies have shown that open offices actually hurt productivity and even cause workers to take more sick days.  So, how can employers solve the collaboration problem? Huddle rooms are the answer.  Huddle rooms, also known as breakout rooms, are

Private Offices vs. Open Workspaces: Which Is Right for Your Business?

BLOG__Private-Offices-vs-Open-Workspaces-Which-Is-Right-for-Your-Business

The debate between private office and open workspace is often seen as a stylistic concern, but it actually plays an important part in ensuring the success and productivity of your business. The goal of picking a layout for your office is to choose an environment that allows your employees to do their best work and accomplish as much as possible.

BLOG__Why-You-Should-Cut-Down-on-Recurring-Meetings

Sometimes, getting everyone together in one room to discuss an issue or make a decision is the most effective way to collaborate. Emails can lead to a lot of back and forth and aren’t always the best way to share information or tackle problems.

Your calendar can become especially overloaded if you have lots of recurring meetings.  Whether you hold them on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, recurring meetings are often a waste of time and frequently don’t have a clear agenda.
