Is Your Office Set Up for Hybrid Success?
With Better Tools, Your Business Can Thrive At Hybrid Work
In-person work has been the norm for as long as we can remember. Then, in recent decades, remote work started to slowly gain popularity until it exploded during the pandemic. After that, nearly all office workers were forced to work from home, and Zoom became a household name.
But as many companies make their return to the office (“RTO”), they’re struggling to manage a happy medium between remote and in-person work. Is your Greenville, SC, business trying to figure out a hybrid model that works?
With the right conferencing technology and systems, including remote participants in your meetings doesn’t have to be a headache or a hassle. As a business technology consultant, let us share what works best in modern hybrid workplaces!
The Trouble with Hybrid
Connecting Zoom, Teams, or Google Meet to your conference room display is easy enough. But what will remote participants see on their screens?
Unfortunately, your remote colleagues, clients, or contractors may be stuck with a vertical view of your conference room table, only catching glimpses of ears and profiles. When people turn to speak to each other, remote workers may not hear clearly or feel included in spur-of-the-moment conversations.
Even worse, if your team depends on a single laptop or phone console for calls, everyone will crowd around it to speak, causing confusion and interruptions. Some business owners are so perplexed by hybrid work that, rather than meet in the conference room, they’ve asked staff to join meetings from their personal computers. This leads some to wonder, why return to the office all? Is hybrid worth the trouble?
The Solution: Upgraded Conferencing Systems
Despite the hiccups along the way, we (and many others) believe hybrid work is the future. Even if the majority or entirety of your staff works in the office, it’s an invaluable asset to seamlessly video conference with clients, training professionals, interview candidates, and other collaborators in different locations.
For a superior hybrid experience, you’ll need conference room AV that’s simple to use and deploy across all your meeting spaces. We help businesses by installing cameras, ceiling microphones, displays, and consoles that all connect to a single system. With a tap of a button, host meetings that integrate all your technology and wirelessly share content to the front display.
What happens if your business uses RingCentral, but your client prefers Zoom? It’s no problem. Bring-your-own-device wireless solutions allow you to cast meetings to the screen, speakers, microphones, and cameras, so you can be agnostic about which conferencing platforms to use.
