Starting Your Return to Work? Don't Forget the Meeting Room
The Q2 buzzword has easily been “Return to Work.” As states loosen restrictions and life begins to move forward with the new normal, many are beginning to plan or are in the process of returning to the office. While there’s no single approach for creating and implementing a return to work plan, one thing is certain: offices need to do more than just encourage social distancing and washing hands, especially when it comes to using meeting rooms.Studies have already shown that meetings are an essential part of work life. In fact, top-level management spends upwards of 50% of their week in meetings. So, how can we work to keep meeting spaces productive, yet safe for employees? This month’s issue of The RoomReady Review will explore this question in detail.
