What can be said here that is new? I have noted some new usage patterns. I have already blurred the boundaries of how the meeting goes online or offline. Previously, an online call caused discomfort, now it does not. When I make an appointment, I don’t think at all which of the participants will participate in how. If someone is in the office, great, the rest will be connected by zoom.
At Mobio, the new reality of remote-friendly work schedules is firmly entrenched. It was surprising to hear in one of the interviews that not many digital agencies offer the opportunity to work remotely. In my world, everyone is working in a hybrid format.
Recently I saw a demonstration case. The sales department made an internal call, three people were in the office, and another 4 stake members were somewhere online. The guys in the office each sat at their own table and communicated via zoom. It was more convenient for them than gathering in front of one camera, for example, in a meeting room.
It’s also great to have some meetings in the car on the way to the office. The road is well-known, and so you go on the machine. If the meeting is about exchanging statuses, without studying any tables, it’s generally fine.
Here’s another, in an offline strategy session, one of the participants was online. Norm passed, they wore it for 2 days in their arms, turned the laptop, cheerfully.
We buy multiple paid zooms for departments, no need to buy for every employee. Google Meet is also excellent, pulled up, a couple of years ago it was inferior to zoom, it seems to me. We don’t use Skype at all, I don’t go there for a couple of years. Skype for Business is a pain. Also the negative experience of using corporate systems based on Webex, sometimes it is not possible to connect at all.
How are you with the inclusion of cameras on the calls? Do you require this from employees? In my opinion, this is part of business etiquette, for example, you do not come to an offline meeting in a T-shirt and with a sandwich.
