Huddle Rooms: The 3-Way Win

Think football teams. When they are on the field making moves they don't have time to call a time out and have a sit down meeting with the entire team to figure out their next play. They huddle, they strategize, they go!  Here are three ways YOUR business can win with huddle rooms.


Smaller Group Meetings: The Company Wins

We’ve all been there, an idea pops into your head during a large meeting. It quite possibly could be the primo solution everyone is searching for; yet you let the moment pass. The thought of your idea being rejected in front of colleagues, associates and executives in a large conference room, overrides the confidence that you have the right answer. The smaller and more intimate setting of huddle rooms allows the ideas to really fly.

Example: Three team members pop in a huddle room after walking out of the above-mentioned large meeting. Team Member A tosses out the idea they’ve been holding in. Team Member B adds to it. Team Member C pokes holes and challenges it. Team Member A finds a work around and patches it back up.

The final product? A well-rounded, fully vetted, hole-proof idea for your brand is born – no one is embarrassed – and the company wins.


Shorter, Impromptu Meetings: The Team Members Win

When an issue arises, or imperative information needs to be relayed and acted upon immediately, having to compare schedules and book a conference room only wastes time that could be used strategizing the next steps. When teams are able to quickly assemble in small numbers into a huddle room, they are working together and getting things done.

According to the average manager spends 35-50% of their time in meetings. To top it off, executives consider 67% of all meetings unproductive. With huddle rooms, meetings inherently prove shorter and more productive.

Shorter, fewer, more productive meetings? Without a doubt, your team members win.


Monumental Teamwork – The Client Wins

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, huddle rooms create an environment that forges synergy and teamwork. A huddle room is a great way to link different employees from different departments and get everyone on the same page quickly. The more intimate setting makes it more approachable, more personal.

On Cresa’s The Amazing Space Podcast, Episode 3, you can listen to Michael Bellaman of Associated Builders and Contractors explain the positive effects of creating a collaborative environment for your employees. He believes it delivers an increased sense of value to their clients. Teamwork is so influential it directly affects how the team values their clients. So even the clients win!

And when your clients feel valued, well, everyone wins.
