Even in offices with one or more formal meeting rooms, it can be a challenge to provide space for all employees to collaborate effectively when they need to. This is where meeting pods come in. Not only do they create a culture of collaboration within your company, they are also a brilliant solution to productively using all the available space in your office, including in breakout areas, receptions and even in wide corridors.

Read on to find out more about why meeting pods are the perfect way to empower your staff to work productively together, without taking up too much space.

What are the different types of meeting pods?

Whatever your industry or company size, there’s a meeting pod to suit your needs. Call us today on 0116 251 7741 or fill in our contact form to discuss your specific requirements with our office furniture experts.

Glass fronted meeting pods

Meeting pods with a glass front door are a great addition to any open plan office as they offer complete privacy and protection from the noise of the surrounding environment for users, without a feeling of being hemmed into a confined space. Glass meeting pods available from Lismark include the Bob Meeting Pod which combines a striking glass door with large sound absorbing flat panels and soft, rounded corners available in a wide range of fabrics, to create a standout style statement for any office. Available in seating for 2, 4 or 6 people, there’s a size for every office space. Alternatively, the fully enclosed Bea Meeting Pod is available with a stylish and functional glass door, again offering a calm environment to collaborate or hold confidential conversations.

2-person meeting pods

For small businesses, where space is limited, or to provide an alternative to a meeting room, a 2-person meeting pod is a great addition to your workspace. Perfect for catching up with a colleague or client over coffee, collaborating on a project or conducting a one-to-one meeting, this type of pod is available in a huge range of styles, from the open-ended to the fully enclosed. With its striking striped design and easy-to-manoeuvre wheels, the Cabana Mobile Meeting Pod offers the ultimate in flexibility as it can be moved to create a meeting place for two, wherever and whenever it is needed.

Acoustic meeting pods

For many meetings, the ability to be able to speak in private, without being distracted by the hustle and bustle of the busy office outside is key. For this reason, noise reduction is often high up the list of priorities for business owners looking to buy a meeting pod.

Clearly, fully enclosed acoustic meeting pods with glass doors will provide far more sound protection than open meeting pods. However, people are often pleasantly surprised by the reduction in sound they experience even with open-ended meeting pods. The Brix-Up Meeting Pod is a great example of this. Available to seat 2, 4 or 6, its acoustic surrounds provide ample privacy to meet and collaborate within, yet away from the wider office space.

Choosing the right meeting pod for your office

Making the most of the space available is the biggest consideration when choosing a meeting pod for your office. Here at Lismark, we are highly experienced in advising and installing modern, high-quality office furniture, and as meeting pod specialists, we’re perfectly placed to advise on what will work for your space and budget.

Increasingly, meeting pods are becoming more of a ‘room within a room’, with the addition of tables, lighting, tv brackets and socket points to provide everything you need to present or hold a video conference, just as you would in a traditional meeting room. The Bill Meeting Pod boasts all these features with the added bonus of castors so you can easily move it from place to place as needed.

Of course, as well as providing the perfect space to gather, meeting pods are also a great way to offer employees a private space to work or hold an online meeting.
