Getting out of the Office: Alternative DC Meeting Places
The meeting rooms you have in the office might be comfortable, but there will come a time when those meeting rooms will look boring and stuffy. Changing the layout of your meeting rooms is important once in a while; a new look can provide a more conducive environment for your meetings.
Most businesses consider meetings an everyday occurrence. When you do something regularly, it becomes a routine, and the possibility that your mind will wander during meetings increases. When this happens, it is important to have a contingency plan, say holding meetings outside the perimeter of the meeting room, to shake things up. Do not forget to check with the boss first to make sure that you are not doing anything against company’s policies. Productivity would be a waste if you get fired for it.
One of the best places to bring the spark back to your meetings, aside from rejuvenating your soul, would be a place that is close to nature. If your office allows it, reserve a spot in a local picnic area or drag your officemates to the nearest beach. You can also hold a meeting while walking, which not only helps employees brainstorm better but also energizes them physically as compared to one day of sitting at work.
Another thing that every office worker knows is that meetings and food go together. Reserve a table at a theme restaurant, or even at a local watering hole for some drinks. Just make sure that everyone is still focused enough on the work, or else heads will roll when the boss finds out you just wasted your time.
Depending on how close everyone is at the office and how accommodating your boss is, you can have the meeting at the boss’ home. The home environment and everyone’s presence might just keep the balance between casualness and work. This way, you can be sure that the work will still be done, like what people usually accomplish in a DC meeting space.
If you don’t want things to be too casual but still want to get out of the office, you can look for a DC meeting space for rent. These places use cutting-edge communications technologies that can excite any office drone. Such meeting places exude a sense of professionalism while allowing employees work outside the office.
Whatever DC meeting space you choose, remember to ask for permission from your boss first. For more information, you can visit MassHighTech.com or EffectiveMeetings.com.
