Noise disruptions, lack of privacy and low productivity are unfortunate problems festering in many workplaces. The acoustic pod, otherwise known as privacy pod or meeting pod, is becoming more common in the office to rectify problems like these.
Acoustic pods give employees the opportunity to meet and work in a comfortable area without distractions. Nevertheless, there are some businesses who refuse to believe to advantages and benefits that acoustic pods bring to the office.
Like the look of an acoustic meeting pod but unsure how much you would use it? We’ve listed a few scenarios when having an acoustic pod in the office is perfect:
A meeting pod is ideal for getting together with visitors. A meeting pod can be placed anywhere that you have the space available: reception areas, breakout spaces, atrium’s and even corridors if your premises have them wide enough. It saves taking the visitors on a long walk through your offices.
A meeting pod with high acoustic sides and back panels can block out noise from the surroundings as well as keeping your conversations private. Fitted with a table, they are ideal for an informal, relaxed one-to-one.
Fitted with a wall mounted monitor and a webcam, a meeting pod is great for Skype meetings. You don’t have to have a large, fancy conference room when you have a versatile acoustic meeting pod.
You know the feeling, when you want an unplanned, impromptu get together with colleagues or visitors for a chat but all the meeting rooms are occupied. If you had a meeting pod, job done, just all pop in there and fire away. Some of our meeting pods can take up to six people.
Need to get away from the buzz of the office to concentrate on a special project? Take your laptop, mobile or tablet and get yourself to a meeting pod. The acoustic sides cut through the noise and allow you to concentrate on the task in hand.
We all know that coffee makes the world go round and what better place to take your refreshments than in a meeting pod, away from the office noise and interruptions. Plus, no-one can steal your biscuits!
