To “huddle” is to put your heads together—as a group—to plan, strategize, collaborate, etc. When creating huddle rooms in the workplace, it’s important to remember that the group doesn’t have to be together physically.Huddle spaces can be designed to be comfortable for local participants, while featuring technologies that are convenient and easy to use for both local and remote participants. These spaces are often created to accommodate casual and spontaneous meetings.
When you assess your company’s collaboration needs and goals against which solutions are available, consider which features you want to prioritize for your remote workers, including the ability to:
- Conduct conference calls with high-quality sound
- Share content from any device (phone, tablet, laptop)
- Conduct group work, like brainstorming and annotating
- Save work and send to all participants
Dispersed teams and a more mobile workforce make remote collaboration a necessity in most modern companies. Workers want flexibility in where and how they collaborate, as well as in which device they use. But accommodating those wants and needs can be complicated in a sea of options.
