What is a Huddle Space?

To get a good idea of what a huddle space looks like, imagine the way a family might huddle around a fire, or how a sports team might huddle together to plan their moves. Just as the name implies, joining a team together through mutual collaboration. Huddle spaces are small meeting areas found in open plan offices or a small meeting room that can accommodate a small number of people. They typically enable users to frequently have quick discussions or meetings when required.  Huddle spaces are equipped with the latest technology:

  • Video Conferencing equipment,
  • An Audio system,
  • An Interactive or Traditional Whiteboard,
  • LCD or LED monitors.
Regardless of your industry, you need to consider the best solution on how to create places for your employees to communicate and collaborate easily. For some, this means considering developing spaces like the 'huddle space' instead of multiple large conference rooms.

Why Huddle?

So, what are the benefits of huddle spaces? 

Though different companies might discover different advantages, here are few of our favourites:

  • Huddle Spaces make the most of the office space  - Businesses often focus on designing one extravagant boardroom packed with the latest technology, this is not just an inefficient use of space; it can also cause issues when boardrooms become double booked due to lack of suitable or available meeting areas. Huddle spaces are ideally suited to conduct those small and impromptu daily meetings. This means less meetings where three people are sitting in a large conference room because it was the only space available.

  • Huddle Spaces encourage interaction and creativity -  Not only do they provide a more casual and comfortable environment for smaller groups of people to meet, but they encourage participants to be more involved, upfront with their opinions, suggest ideas and brainstorm with ease.

  • Huddle Spaces allow effective cooperation, without distraction -  It creates an intimate space where employees can easily get together to participate in brainstorming, sharing content, making decisions, problem-solving discussions, webinars, sales presentations, job interviews, or any business face-to-face interactions without any noise and distractions involved.

Spreading the word and drawing in new customers relates to the growth and success of your business. This is particularly true if you have a restaurant, retail store and other types of businesses that relay on foot traffic. The sign is one form of marketing and advertising that ranks being the most effective. A brand-new sign is the oldest but most dependable way to get people to notice your location.

In the past decade, the business world has changed drastically. Innovations in technology and developments within the world have created many changes and these changes can often present a number of challenges for businesses.

The workplace is now no longer a single physical place:

A large percentage of businesses have employees and clients scattered across numerous locations.

Some businesses no longer have just one single physical workplace; there is also an increasing number of companies that do not have office space at all.

Although this evolution within the business world has enabled businesses to change the way they operate, it does cause issues in terms of communication. It is now more important than ever that businesses ensure they maintain a good level of communication with the employees and clients as they are scattered across a number of locations.

Audio visual technology enables businesses to communicate with ease; video conferencing allows businesses to hold virtual meetings with their clients and employees, no matter where they are located, without having to step a foot outside of their workplace.

Not only this, but when a business has employees scattered across the globe it can also cause a number of issues with training, in terms of providing and facilitating training for each and every employee.

Video conferencing enables businesses to provide training to multiple employees at the same time across numerous locations without becoming costly or complicated.

Businesses are trying to do more with less:

Due to the innovations within the business world, smaller companies are now trying to keep up with their bigger competitors by trying to be more productive with less resources and tighter schedules.

Audio visual technology can help to boost productivity within a business, by improving communication between employees and the different departments within a business. Through displaying key messages using display screens , a business can motivate their employees and increase their productivity and this boost in productivity can be achieved without breaking the bank.

The business environment is much more fast paced:

Finally, with the internet and innovations in technology having caused our generation to expect instant results, this is now being reflected within the business world. The fast paced nature of business means that decisions need to be made quickly and communication needs to be fast.

Audio visual technology can also help a business to keep up to speed with the fast paced working environment, by allowing messages to be shared instantly via display screens and video conferencing .
