Getting Employees Comfortable in a Boardroom Setting

Tips for making boardrooms feel more comfortable and approachable to employees

Let’s face it, conference rooms and boardroom meetings can be stuffy and intimidating. Getting together with bosses and peers can make people nervous to share new ideas and talk in-front of a large group.

Making a boardroom as comfortable as possible for employees is really important. Since large brainstorming sessions, presentations, and meetings take place there. Allowing employees to feel comfortable in their surroundings will increase communication, ideas, and company bonding.


Tables: Boardroom tables need to be big enough to fit everyone needed at the table. Cramming people in, no room for writing or their personal things will make people uncomfortable and unproductive. Make sure you know the maximum about of people needed at the table at one time. Bridges boardroom table is a sleek and modern option, while some custom builds are more traditional. Connectable boardroom tables can be pulled apart into smaller tables for collaboration and group work.

Chairs: We know that people don’t sit at boardroom chairs for as long or as often as they sit at in their office chairs. However they should still be comfortable to sit in. They should also be sleek and thin in order to save space within the room. Always have chairs on castors and with a swivel so people can turn to look at people who are talking and move around easily when needed. Try chairs like the G20, Accord, Ignition, and Mirage Chairs.




Accessories: There are many other products that can make your boardroom more comfortable and usable. Magnetic white boards or mobile marker boards are great ways to brain storm, jot down notes, and convey ideas to the whole room. Coffee carts and tables for food and other drinks are a great way to get people comfortable in the environment with a nice cup of coffee, juice, or something to eat.



Colour, plants, friendly lighting are all ways to make boardrooms light and easy allowing maximum output from employees. Make your boardroom into a place that employees want to be!
