In the past 12 months, the lives of working professionals have transformed. Hybrid working is now a reality and it’s a way of working many have dreamt of for years.
As the world of hybrid work continues to develop and an increasing number of meetings and creative collaborations take place virtually, integrated audio and video solutions are essential for today’s professional person.
Did you know?
According to the research by Ipsos and EPOS:
- 56% believe good audio will prevent moments of stress at work
- 68% believe good audio will stop the need to repeat or clarify points while working
- 67% believe good audio will prevent feelings of frustration, annoyance, and irritation at work
- 66% believe good audio will prevent extra time required setting up technology at work
- 71% believe that better audio will help prevent lost pitches in the future
- 60% of decision makers believe better sound will help them retain clients
Research by Ipsos and EPOS has revealed that we now spend over 7 hours a week in virtual meetings on average – that’s an increase of two hours per week in the last year. But many professionals are now looking for a more balanced approach, with more face-to-face interactions as well as virtual ones. Being able to read facial expressions and body language improves our ability to gauge people’s reactions to our ideas and allows conversations to flow in a smooth, fluid manner – and this is especially important in group discussions.
With more businesses looking to take advantage of the time and cost benefits of meeting virtually rather than in-person, it’s essential that that the quality of those meetings isn’t compromised. This means using technology that people on both sides of the conversation have confidence in, without the distractions of bad audio or poor visual connections. With the right technology, users can focus their full attention on the content of the conversation and on responding to those involved.
As we evolve to a hybrid model that combines formal working environments with remote working, we need to ensure that new boundaries are not created. Virtual collaboration tools need to work both in and out of the office – and ideally create the link between the two.
Collaboration technology is at the heart of the hybrid working revolution. By acknowledging the powerful role of audio and visual technology, we can eradicate distractions and focus on communicating content and enhancing human interaction in our meetings – and make that the professional standard we all aspire to.
