Designed to meet the needs of an evolving workforce, organizations are embracing more open workspaces to enable collaboration and give employees choice and flexibility of how they work.
However, while an open office environment can foster collaboration, the lack of privacy can inhibit collaboration when conversing on sensitive information or it can impact the level of concentration during a highly-intensive virtual meeting.
Enter the Quiet Room! Quiet Rooms are enclosed small rooms for individual workers that require concentration or privacy. Keeping in line with the trend of open office collaboration, equipping these rooms with technology, like Cisco personal telepresence solutions, can increase the effectiveness of employees in open workspace environments.
Roopam Jain, Industry Director of Unified Communications and Collaboration at Frost & Sullivan, recently said, “With many employees now working in more open space environments, quiet rooms incorporating Cisco TelePresence systems enable spur of the moment ‘face time’ among team members in dispersed locations without employees having to tie up a larger conference room for a video call.”
