3 Workstyle Trends and Why Video Collaboration Is The Best Fit for All of Them
While video is a medium that older generations are still getting used to—as anyone who has FaceTimed with their parents’ or grandparents’ foreheads can attest—for the generations currently entering the workforce, video chatting and collaborating is second nature. Millennials and Gen Zs think nothing of walking down the aisles of a grocery store video chatting with friends, and they expect that same type of video communication to be available at work as well.
For your business, video collaboration is a win-win that gives workers the flexibility they crave while also providing opportunities for cooperation and collaboration that can drive innovation and growth at your company.
Before you can choose the right tools to support your employees, you need to understand how, where, and when those employees want to work. Here are 3 important trends taking over the modern workplace.
Video collaboration tools can help your company meet employees’ desire for both flexibility and collaboration, while also fostering innovation and productivity that will help your company grow. Here’s how.
Huddle rooms and other small meeting spaces equipped with video collaboration tools let workers hold the impromptu, less formal meetings they want, and they allow remote workers to easily get in on the collaboration. Platforms that include video conferencing and content sharing capabilities are ideal.
Cloud-based video collaboration platforms like Zoom, Skype, and GoToMeeting let participants connect from any device, anywhere, at any time. Team members can hop on a video chat from home, the neighborhood coffee shop, or an airport lounge, and collaboration is not restricted to traditional working hours.
With the flexibility and collaboration that the right video solution provides, both on-site and remote workers will feel more connected and be more engaged, which will pay big dividends in employee satisfaction and productivity.
