5 Ways Privacy Pods for Offices Add Value

Whether your employees have a cubicle or an assigned desk space at work, or if you have a more modern workspace with an open layout, there are times that those just don’t cut it. When people need to buckle down and focus, does your office offer furniture to help them get the creative juices flowing?

Time and time again, we have seen phone-booth style solutions integrated into workspaces, only for them to sit empty most of the day. Sure, people might take a call in them, but they’re not conducive to long-term work tasks or meaningful productivity.

This is why more office spaces need to take innate human behavior into consideration in their space designs and furniture offerings. Often, offices will swing to one side or the other, isolating employees or making them feel like they’re on display. Instead, people innately need both Prospect and Refuge.

Here are five reasons Privacy PODs for offices are valuable:

1) Boost Focus and Productivity

One of the best ways to increase focus is to work in a location that is free from distractions, and that feels safe. Our Privacy PODs for offices were designed to meet people’s desire to feel secure (by having their back and side covered) and to eliminate unnecessary distractions. At the same time, the POD’s innovative curved design allows your team to not feel isolated or unaware of what’s happening around them.

2) Modern Aesthetic

No one likes the feeling of being stuck in a box on display like a tiger at the zoo. And let’s be honest, most people don’t love the idea of being tucked away in a cubicle all day. The aesthetic of your space matters and the furniture you put in it will set the tone for someone’s experience, whether they are an employee or a client visiting the office. Our Privacy PODs for offices combine elevated design and provide privacy, security, and focus.

3) Privacy

It’s in the name of the type of pods, so we take this one seriously. Agati was the first in the industry to design the original POD, leading the way for an industry-wide focus on pod-style furniture. A Single POD is the perfect location for focused work, phone calls, or virtual meetings. Add in a few Duo PODs and you’ve got the perfect spot for one-on-one meetings with clients or your coworkers.

4) Integrates With Your Space

Traditional privacy booths are boxy and cumbersome to fit into your office. Newer styles are often mostly glass and put employees uncomfortably on display during work calls. Aesthetically, they either stick out like a sore thumb or are placed in a back corner where they are out of the way, adding nothing to the flow of the space overall. With an inspiring and interesting curved shape, Agati PODs can be placed where they will be used the most, all while elevating the current aesthetic.

5) Rejuvenate and Recharge

Not in the mood to socialize on your lunch break? People can grab a POD and take some time to recharge by themselves before returning to work. You can eat lunch while reading a book or listening to your favorite podcast. At the end of your lunch break, you’ll be feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after getting a break from the buzz and chatter of the office.

Privacy PODs for offices are the clear choice to create a space to focus, take a virtual meeting, and rejuvenate while still elevating the aesthetic of the office. We are ready to customize a solution that meets your needs. Reach out to an expert today >>
