Many older generations had their first Zoom experience over the last two years to connect with their loved ones.
Embracing technology was a necessity at this point, but it wasn’t necessarily driven by having more free time — they needed a substitute for not being able to see the important people in their lives.
Having this innate need is also reflected in the workplace.
The need for sustaining innovation and collaboration has been fundamental for business continuity.
However, video conference adoption can only be truly effective if it provides a high-quality employee experience.
For instance, anyone can host a presentation via video conferencing technology, but what does it do to engage colleagues and allow them to have a full understanding of what is being showcased?
What this indicates is that there is a growing need for more advanced video conferencing technology — tools that are able to provide better insight and actually create a hands-on, immersive experience for attendees.
Collaboration has emerged as one of the biggest challenges for distributed workforces, so it is up to business leaders to invest and improve upon current tools in order to build an environment that allows workers to continue upskilling and making connections with their colleagues.
