Why Huddle Spaces Matter

This is the second in a series of posts about improving the workplace through collaboration technology. Read part one here and part three.

The need to maximize collaboration and business productivity has generated the requirement for more flexible spaces—making huddle spaces so important to companies. These high-tech collaboration areas can be used for impromptu meetings, bringing together remote and onsite collaborators.

Watch this short video to see real-world examples of how huddle spaces can enable team members to get work done easily with collaborative technology.  Contact one of our representatives with your questions at sales@avispl.com or 866-559-8197.

Workplace Transformation Starts With a Goal

This is the first in a series of posts about improving the workplace through collaboration technology.

As 2018 approaches, a lot of us will be thinking of positive changes and fresh starts. For businesses, that may include improving the way people create ideas, address challenges, and make the best of each other’s knowledge and talent. Over the course of the next few posts, I’ll be sharing resources that will inspire you to see that “that’s the way it’s always been done” isn’t a mandate that must be followed, and that it’s possible to break free of that inertia.

Throughout 2017, AVI-SPL hosted TechXchange events throughout North America, with the mission to hear from attendees about their workplace challenges, and to offer insight into positive trends that are changing how people work together. In that spirit, here are some steps you can take:

  • Assess the state of collaboration. Take an honest assessment of where your organization is with collaboration. Begin by asking employees about their work preferences and where they would like to see changes. Rather than implementing technologies or changing methods piecemeal, you will get a big picture of the kinds of changes you will want to make.
  • Uncover cultural challenges. Learn where the roadblocks to collaboration are within your organization. Outline what you want your collaboration culture to look like and create a plan that includes encouraging openness and rewarding collaborative behaviors.
  • Decide what metrics you will use. You will want to continually evaluate the value and effectiveness of your collaboration solution. To do so, the company needs to first identify and prioritize goals.

Each of these tips will bring up more questions, but for now you have an idea of the kind of questions and issues that need to be considered. Ask us anything if you want to dive deeper and go into specifics: sales@avispl.com or 866-559-8197.

In the next entry of this series, we’ll look at huddle spaces and why they are valuable to companies that want to improve the workplace experience.
