First things first, it's time to make the switch to sit to stand workstations. A training room outfitted with sit to stand stations will create clean sight lines while helping your guests fight back against productivity killers like poor blood flow and bad posture. Brands like Mayline, OFM, and Global offer electronic sit to stand workstations that raise and lower quickly with the push of a button. If you don't want to purchase all new tables for your space, consider retrofitting your existing stations with the addition of surface convertors like the 5100 model from OFM.

2.) Charging Carts

16 Tablet Charging Cart

These days tablets, laptops, and devices are as common as the tables they sit on in the training room. If you're looking to revamp your space in 2018, you'll no doubt need a heavy duty (and secure) charging cart to house your electronic tools. Brands like MooreCo offer some of the absolute best options on the market. A locking cart for charging tablets like the 27689 from MooreCo is a must consider. With a 16 tablet capacity, locking doors, and 3" casters, this charging cart provides exceptional benefits that should not be overlooked.

The FlexCharge9 and similar modules available in 2018 should be highly considered by any business looking to improve collaborative efforts and overall productivity on a budget.

4.) Nesting Chairs

Flip Up Seat Nesting Chair

Visitor comfort should be another top priority when revamping your training room. Lucky for you, there's stackable nesting chairs available in 2018 that make it easy to maximize space and operational versatility without sacrificing comfort. We recommend the Roma model 1899 flip seat nesting chair from Global. It's outfitted with a ventilated mesh back and well padded seat that's ideal for extended training sessions. Lot's of cool color combinations are also available to distinguish your interior.

5.) Mobile Presentation Boards

Last but certainly not least, revamp your training environments with a mobile presentation board that can be taken where you need it, when you need it. A dry erase board on wheels will simplify note taking sessions while encouraging guest interaction. The best part is, mobile presentation boards are widely available from just about any reputable furniture manufacturer on the planet. We absolutely love the popular options from MooreCo and Global.
