A recent study highlights the cost-effectiveness of office pods over building new meeting rooms. Framery, in collaboration with CBRE Finland, compared the expenses of Framery soundproof office pods to equivalent meeting rooms in Europe, North America, and Asia. This repeat analysis yielded valuable insights for office tenants and managers seeking to optimize their workspace.
The study underscores a global trend: traditional office layouts don't align with the evolving workforce's needs. Meetings are becoming smaller and more virtual, with 90% involving remote participants. Modern offices require quiet areas for calls and smaller meetings, yet suitable meeting rooms are scarce, especially in contemporary open-plan spaces. Companies now face a pivotal choice: invest in more walls or embrace versatile pods to adapt to the changing demands of the modern workplace.
