Build a Better Training Room
Training rooms are central locations for education and innovation. They can look like conference rooms, but their key differences make them an integral part of a workplace's ecosystem. Create a flexible and functional training space with the right furniture and tech to empower every employee.
These sessions have become fairly high-tech in recent years—just like the jobs accompanying the training. Ensure that your training room is outfitted with the right technology, including projectors, video cameras, screens, and tablets to supplement learning. Provide plenty of access to power to keep your tech fully charged and ready to go.
A Movable Place
From size to scope to configuration and everywhere in between, it's possible that no 2 training sessions will look the same. Choose movable, mobile tables and chairs to ensure that the room's configuration can be changed and scaled to fit the program.
Whether it's protecting the aforementioned tech or keeping office supplies tidy, a storage cabinet or simple credenza provides concealed compartments to make sure the environment is clean and uncluttered while in use.
When your training room needs added floor space or not every table is filled, use nesting flip-top tables and coordinating nesting chairs to store overflow furniture without taking up too much real estate.
Ensure session leaders aren't left out to dry by providing a podium, desk, or cart to store instructors' supplies. These can be static fixtures or mobile options that are tech-ready for use with screens or speakers.
Attendees may come with extra materials or personal belongings that need to be stored somewhere. If your space isn't near a coat closet, choose chairs with under-seat storage or add hooks beneath training tabletops to hold purses or backpacks.
