Teleworking is no longer just a trend. It’s the norm. With 61 percent of people working outside of the office today, organizations have to adjust the way they empower workers to collaborate. And that’s making the virtual meeting experience a core element of collaboration for any organization.

Communications Tools Get a Reboot

Collaborating across distances isn’t new. But connection is only the start. Now, organizations need to enable collaboration without technology getting in the way. In other words, connecting a dispersed workforce now comes down to creating a rich, immersive meeting experience with technology that practically disappears into the background. From enhanced video and audio capabilities to sharing content and expressing ideas from anywhere at any time, workers have the ability to interact virtually the same way they do in person.

A Collaboration Strategy Is Key

Work isn’t a place where you go. It’s what you get done, and how you’re meeting business objectives. Making actual work happen anywhere takes a seamless collaboration experience that works just as well across the hall as it does across the world. And that means building a comprehensive collaboration strategy revolving around the virtual meeting as the center point of gravity where you can communicate, share and interact with the right tools and resources immediately available.

Boost Engagement to Maximize ROI

A lot of times organizations miss the mark when it comes to remote working. The idea that workers are inherently less productive out of the office is outdated. But it’s not the medium that’s the problem, it’s the strategy. Maximizing productivity outside of the office hinges on providing those workers with the right tools and technology that create the type of experiences that foster real engagement. And the more organizations can engage their employees, the more they’ll see productivity rise, and an actual ROI on their collaboration investment.
