What local experts would do to improve the space

"We would suggest a standing height technology table for this marketing company," said Mike Warren, workplace culture consultant for Rieke Office Interiors of Elgin.

Standing height tables are ideal for use in conference rooms, training rooms and other shared office areas, experts say.

"The table will allow the team to take advantage of quicker healthier meetings," Warren said.

In addition, a whiteboard table top would allow for enhanced brainstorming and doodling ideas during meetings. The design of a conference room can enhance creativity.

Warren said if a company does not have power or data in the floor under the table, it's possible to set the table up against the wall and run the power from the wall under the table. "This concept also reduces the need for everyone to have a chair around the table saving costs," he added.

By now, you have probably heard about the possible benefits of a standing desk and conference table. It could help you burn more calories during the day and reduce back and neck pain.

And a new study suggests that standing desks could also boost productivity for some employees by a whopping 46 percent.
