The Board Room for the Future

The boardroom of the future will be designed to promote health and well-being for its members. It should also be a space that encourages the use of digital technology to ensure a more efficient and effective meetings.

Furniture for meeting rooms, as an instance, must be flexible enough to allow several participants to attend the same event without sacrificing privacy or efficiency. The room must be equipped with an advanced acoustic system as well as high-quality sound design to ensure that in-person and virtual attendees are clearly heard. Natural light is needed to minimize eye strain during meetings. According to an upcoming Harvard Business Review study, access to natural lighting is the number one desired office perk, eclipsing more conventional and predictable options such as cafeterias on site and fitness centers.

Other technological innovations could be useful in the boardroom, including real-time analytics and “living” management infographics which take the concept of information graphics and dashboards to the next level and include crowdsourcing technology that can provide an outside perspective from the stakeholders. These tools can help the board better assess risks and create more solid foundations for decision-making.

Furthermore, the boardroom of the future will have to incorporate more sustainability expertise. This includes having board members who are knowledgeable about the impact of their business activities on the environment, climate, biodiversity and human rights. It will also require new skills, such as being able to assess the impact of ESG on the long-term financial results.
