Before the pandemic, we were spending between 31- 60 minutes per meeting across 220 million meetings per year. What does this translate to, now that so many of us are working from home (WFH)?1
Meetings, like so many aspects of our workday, rely on face-to-face interactions. They are a critical part of how we collaborate, exchange ideas, learn new things, and pitch for better business outcomes. As we switched to WFH almost overnight, a meeting room makeover was among the top priorities in order to collaborate as usual. But the modalities are completely different: not only are we meeting on digital platforms, but coordination is difficult, and connectivity issues are common. How can businesses still empower their employees to be their best selves at work, be it from home or a social- distancing-friendly workplace? How do you redefine the meeting experience and infrastructure for the realities of the new normal? Read on as we explore viable answers.
