Training Room 101: It's All About Collaboration

collaborative training room design tipsThese days it's all about improving collaboration in the workplace. As businesses across the globe search for ways to encourage interaction and spark creativity, industry leading furniture brands are answering the all with modular furniture and seating solutions. Today in our 'Training Room 101' series we'll highlight the benefits of effective collaboration in the training room and the products you'll need to design a high performance interior for your business.

Do you remember back in grade school when you got to work in groups with your friends? Weren't you a bit more excited and engaged in the work? The same holds true as adults. The problem is, we seldom get to work together anymore.

The open concept benching trend took over last year and has made its way to the training room. Now that businesses have made the switch from panel furniture to open concept benching, they've realized the benefit and want more.

Effective collaboration in the training room is supremely important. You want your valued workers to retain the information you provide. As collaboration sparks creativity, a versatile interior outfitted with modular tables and nesting chairs is the way to go.

When remodeling your training room, flip top tables with mobilized bases are the preferred choice. They make it easy to adapt on the fly and meet the needs of any task. With mobile tables you'll be able to create unique layouts for group activities. When tables are not being used, they can be moved out of the way without heavy lifting to create additional workspace.

Once you've selected tables for your space, it's time to think about improving visitor comfort and maximizing seating potential. Nesting chairs are the perfect option. Much like mobile tables, nesting chairs make it easy to reconfigure on the fly. When not in use, training room chairs that nest can be staged along perimeter walls. Nesting chairs have come a long way in the last few years. They're super versatile, cost effective, and don't lack in terms of comfort

Training room accessories like mobile AV carts, wall mounted TV's, and lecterns will give your space a boost. In particular, you'll want to consider addicting a few universal power modules like the AC99834BL hub from Bush. With USB and AC ports your training room guests can spend more time working and less time looking for power outlets to charge devices.

In the long run, creating a collaborative training room is easier than ever before. Evolve your interior to keep up with the competition and improve the learning experience. Once you make collaboration a priority, the sky is the limit!
