Ask any company about the secret to their success and often the answer will be collaboration; how the staff worked together despite being spread out across various sites around the world to complete a project. It makes sense to create a space in your organisation that makes it even easier for this type of work to take place. It does and it exists. They’re called Huddle Rooms.
In the 21st century there’s a new saying – work is a thing you do, not a place you go. The days of sitting at a desk from 9am to 5pm are long gone for many employees thanks to the freedom the internet has provided.
