Furniture with a Function – Staff Training

May 19, 2016

Training sessions and workshops can work magic sometimes, but we wouldn’t be surprised if many dread even the thought of it. 

Meeting rooms and boardrooms - What makes a good training room?
Training sessions and workshops can work magic sometimes, but we wouldn’t be surprised if many dread even the thought of it. An interesting (or useful) subject helps, of course, as does a good trainer/facilitator. But what can really make or break a seminar is the room itself. Dark, stuffy and cramped conditions are not an ideal environment for taking on new ideas, and the wrong seating and desks can undermine any good work being done.

At CamHam, we’ve discovered, over the years, what good trainers expect of a good training room with regard to furniture, and reckon it’s time to share a few of the golden nuggets we’ve learned.

So here are our top tips for getting the right office furniture for your business:

1. Plenty of sideboard space for refreshments and handouts. 
First things first, when delegates arrive they are usually greeted with tea & coffee, asked to sign in, and given a handout. If this takes place in the training room itself, there needs to be enough space to accommodate everything without it looking cluttered and cramped.

CamHam furniture suggestion: Credenza boardroom furniture which includes sideboards - available in many styles and colour finishes to match other furniture in the room.

2. Well-designed cupboard/wardrobe/hanging space for coats and brollies.
This is invaluable when it’s wet outside and everything is steaming, having somewhere to place coats etc is a must.

CamHam furniture suggestion:  The CamHam office accessories range which includes items such as hat/coat stands.

3. Robust, spacious storage
This is vital for larger presentation items such a projectors, screens (if not wall mounted), flipcharts and their consumables, pens, stationery, brochures and remote controls etc.

CamHam furniture suggestion: The CamHam office cupboard range is built with heat and stain resistant MFC, and comes in a variety of finishes and styles including fixed or adjustable shelving.

4. Access to breakout areas.
Training isn’t the same without some sort of group discussion and breakout session.

CamHam furniture suggestion: Obviously, delegates need somewhere to go for these but once there, there are a variety of furniture options that may suit a trainer’s requirements. For example: stylish high back tub style chairs with deep cushioned seats, contoured back and a durable leather faced finish; modular seating systems that can be configured to suit the space required with removable seat cushions for easy cleaning; breakout seating with its modular design and mobility to allow for infinite layouts.

5. Flexible desking. 
That can neatly accommodate technology as well as more traditional pads and pens.

CamHam furniture suggestion: Folding Leg Tables are ideal for saving space, giving maximum space efficiency in as well as flexibility, and can be easily folded and stacked afterwards. Or, alternatively, flip top tables which offer flexible movement, easy storage and quick assembly.

6. Comfortable chairs.
That are light enough to be moved into different layouts and clusters.

CamHam funiture suggestion:  Conference chairs are ideal for any multi-seating environment. They are designed for comfort, with leather faced seat and back, padded leather arm supports, and front support feet for anti-tilt.

With training taking place somewhere every day across Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, we’re delighted to be regularly supplying training room furniture across those counties and beyond. If you’d like to find out more, just get in touch!
