COVID-19 was a catalyst that changed our collaboration landscape forever. Whereas business travel and open office spaces were once the norm, today, we face a new reality, and one that is continually evolving. In the wake of stay-at-home orders, several shifts have taken hold:
- Remote work is here to stay, and will be fundamental to the way we operate moving forward. In fact, Gartner reports that 74% of companies plan to to shift some employees to permanent remote work positions post COVID-19.
- Video is now a big part of our daily lives, and not just for work, but for virtual happy hours, gym sessions, birthday parties, and more.
- We no longer hide in “audio-only” mode; instead, turning on video so we can engage with others over face-to-face conversation.
Over the past few months, we have beared with each other and overcome the rookie mistakes of video calls — forgetting to mute, backlighting — and we’ve settled into home office environments. Working from home is no longer a novelty or a privilege; it’s normal, and video meetings are a fundamental part of our new reality.
