Training Rooms that Engage Employees

If you want to make your training room more enjoyable and avoid the typical conference room layout, there are a few different ways to accomplish this. These include:


  • Comfortable seating
  • An accessible room layout
  • High-quality tables and desks
  • Mobile furniture
  • Storage for training equipment


Let’s take a look at each of these in more detail.

Provide Comfortable Seating

In any learning environment, it is crucial to provide your learners or trainees with the most comfortable seating that you can. Let’s be honest — no one is going to want to be engaged with the material in front of them if their chair is uncomfortable.


Sitting for long periods of time can lead to back pain and decreased focus, so make sure you have the best seating possible. To do this, take a look at some of the affordable and comfortable office chairs we offer.

Have an Accessible Room Layout

To make sure that your training room can efficiently facilitate your lesson, we suggest turning your two-person workstations into one. This decreases the number of trainees sitting at each desk and allows each employee to be more comfortable so they can focus on the material being presented.


We also highly recommend using individual desks. This keeps the room open and facilitates a positive working environment.

Use High-Quality Tables and Desks

A successful training room always incorporates high-quality, sturdy, and appealing tables and desks. If you want to use multiple-person workstations, make sure they’re of the best quality possible. Because a training room is likely to be used quite a bit over time, this can ensure that your equipment stays in good condition for years to come.

Make Use of Mobile Office Furniture

Another great way to keep the training room open and accessible is to utilize mobile furniture, especially mobile workstations. Rather than sitting behind a desk the entire time, getting up and engaging in physical activities can keep your trainees focused. This also allows presenters to quickly and easily move furniture around to meet the needs of the training material.

Provide Storage for Your Trainees

If your training room isn’t located near a storage closet or some sort of storage unit for personal belongings, this can cause issues. Items will likely end up on the floor, desk, or the back of chairs. This can increase clutter and decrease the accessibility of the room. Provide storage cabinets for personal items, as well as for training equipment, to keep things clean and clear.
