Four uses for large meeting rooms
Large meeting rooms aren’t just for meetings! If you have a conference room that seats around 30 people, you have an opportunity to get creative! Here are four ways to maximize that space:
- Co-working. This can be particularly efficient if your employees mainly work on their own. Studies have shown that just being in a space with others can boost mood and creativity. So why not provide co-working times in your meeting space? Allow employees to bring their laptops and some snacks and just be in the presence of others.
- An art exhibit. Art is a guaranteed mood-booster.. Consider working with local artists and change out the work hanging on your meeting room walls on a rolling basis. This gives employees a chance to step away and have a look at some lovely art. When you do use your room for meetings, you’ll also have a great conversation starter.
- Meetups: As it becomes safer to gather in groups, some offices are using their large conference rooms for meetups or networking events. Inviting the community into your space gives a good opportunity to potentially reach new clients, but it also helps you emphasize that you value relationships and personal interaction.
- Rent it out! This is the most practical item on this list, but if you have a large space and are comfortable renting it out to local businesses or nonprofits, you can make a little money and provide a much-needed resource.
