Finding the right meeting pod for your workspace

Collaborative and social space that provides opportunities for creative thinking is crucial for a future ready workspace. But there is widespread agreement that a variety of working environments is best for increased productivity and well-being. For privacy and confidentiality, office meeting pods are one of the most flexible, cost-effective ways to create separate spaces for focused work.

Why does your office need a meeting pod?

Meeting pods create a micro-environment within a busy workspace. Providing a soundproof area, they aid concentration and reduce distraction. They may suit some team members for occasional use e.g., joining a Zoom call or they may be used regularly by team members who find it stressful to work in a busy office. The option of choosing a private space away from noise and stimulation enhances well-being in the workplace.

Not all focused work is best done at home. Home environments do not always provide the peace and quiet needed. Generation Z employees (under 25s) for example, are the least likely to be homeowners, and may find it difficult to access suitable quiet space at home.

Cost-saving and flexible, meeting pods are an ideal alternative to constructing internal walls. They’re often mobile and can be moved to re-configure the office layout. They can be removed and reinstalled if the office relocates. For office fit-outs such as CAT A+ they’re a practical and flexible, room within a room’ for providing private meeting space.

Increasingly popular, there’s now a wide range of options available, catering to every need.
