As new work models, such as the hybrid workplace continue to evolve, organizations are embracing the opportunity to digitally transform how work gets done. From operations and productivity to communications and employee engagement, technology continues to play an important role in workplace transformation.
Today’s hybrid framework merges the personal with the public, blending home offices, virtual and on-the-go engagements with onsite, physical spaces. It’s more important than ever for enterprises to find ways to maintain community, make meetings efficient, keep teams productive, and make it all seamless as employees move from the living room to the office. Flexibility and reliability are key to making hybrid work succeed, and modern AV tools are front and center.
Advanced AV technology has played a significant role in ensuring enhanced communication, collaboration, employee enablement, and support. But choosing the right AV solutions for your hybrid workplace is key to ensuring more equitable experiences for employees wherever they work.
A demand for flexibility
It’s more important than ever for enterprises to find ways to maintain community and keep teams productive, and flexible communication solutions are essential to advance collaboration and ensure that operations run smoothly. This means having the ability to provide clear sound for audio and video conferencing, seamless presentations, and high-definition equipment that helps capture and stream meetings and bring teams together from anywhere.
Gartner Research suggests that the more flexibility an employee has, the more likely they are to be connected to company culture. Research reveals that organizations that succeed at connecting employees to their culture can increase employee performance by up to 37% and employee retention by up to 36%. To make the hybrid model succeed, organizations must bridge in-office and at-home experiences—and modern AV solutions can help.
Custom AV solutions to bring teams together
A connected ecosystem is a major trend that will let workers stay in sync while also individualizing their environments. Whether remote or hybrid, workers don’t want to feel like an after-thought and leveraging a wholistic ecosystem of technology can ensure employees have the support, access, and tools they need to make a profound impact.
State of the art high-resolution, laser projectors and other AV technology such as cameras, microphones and displays can help every participant in a webinar, live podcast or video conference participate to their fullest. Combined with content management, digital signage can also help organizations keep employees up to date for all their communication needs, from sharing sales and performance statistics, to providing training and safety information, to sharing information and insights that can help build employee morale and create a stronger company culture. The goal? Natural meeting experiences that encourage conversation, seamless content sharing, and multimodal, multidevice communication – ones that are physically discreet, so it’s easy to stay engaged with the person-to-person collaboration, rather than the tools.
