How Workplaces Lose Money With Wrong-Sized Meeting Rooms
Are your conference rooms costing you money?
Do you know how big your average meeting is? It’s smaller than you might think. According to more than 10,000 hours of usage data tracking in Density’s Mid-Year 2019 Workplace Utilization Index, meeting rooms were routinely used by just one person. Of the 60 meeting rooms analyzed over a six-month data-set, rooms were occupied by a single person 36 percent of the time.
This could be a consequence of workers’ inability to find private areas for video calls and focused work within open-office layouts. With no private offices to turn to, individual employees seem to be monopolizing meeting rooms that were designed for groups.
