1. Provide enough pods

It is essential.

Framery have studied and found that the primary obstacle of using pods is their limited number.

In the beginning, 1 Framery O for every 10 employees and 1 Framery Q for every 15 employees is often sufficient.

2. Consider the users needs

Employees, teams and the natural flow of work is the basis of pod placing – not the floor plan.

may feel that they’re becoming isolated from their colleagues.
