Employees transitioning back to the workplace at different stages create a hybrid environment where some employees are in the office, and some are at home on any given day. This hybrid schedule makes it tricky to coordinate team meetings as areas with sufficient technology are needed for in-house team members to connect with off-site employees. As a result, many companies look to add pods, booths, executive touch-down spaces, small conference rooms, or media areas with a camera, monitor, speaker, microphone, and internet access to connect the remote employees with the in-office people. However, these can be expensive upgrades if not utilized 100%.
AIS offers a different solution – a desking system that can convert to a collaboration space for up to four team members and an optional monitor/camera set-up to include remote workers. The two desk configuration has sliding worksurfaces that glide along the 29″ tall laminated Community Spine, giving users the ability to convert individual workspaces into team collab space and back again. Optionally, we mount a monitor and camera in the community area to create a media center space to connect with remote employees, or a company’s IT department can set-up a completely customizable solution.
When set up for desk hoteling, the Community Spine is an efficient central feature that gives every worker convenient access to power and data. The unique sliding worksurfaces of Community help people gather throughout the day without needing an additional conference room. Co-workers in a shared office can adapt to a collaborative space on the fly, with individual worktops sliding together efficiently and power always within reach along the spine, no matter the location of the worktops.
Combine the Community Spine with upper and lower elements from Community’s family of case goods, socializing, storage, and conferencing furnishings to create diverse areas. Establish boundaries without extra panels or walls. Easily scaled to support various needs throughout an organization, Calibrate Community combines to form a complete hybrid workplace solution.
Community takes the Calibrate laminate family one step farther with a simple kit of parts that provides meaningful options for the open plan. Designed with the warmth of residential furniture and the efficiencies of panel systems, Calibrate Community sets clear boundaries for personal space, delineates team areas, and creates a sense of place. No matter how you define community, Calibrate Community has you covered.
