These 5 Important Steps Up-Leveled My Virtual Meetings by 10x
According to this McKinsey Survey on Flexible Work, 58% of the American workforce is in some kind of remote or hybrid work scenario.
And according to the latest Microsoft Work Trend Index Report, the average employee spends 57% of their time in communication tasks — meaning meetings, email, and chat.
These stats indicate that remote or hybrid work is here to stay, and given that we spend more than half of our time conferencing with each other, the audio and visual aspects of our communications have become more and more important in this new & changing landscape of corporate work.
How you show up in a Microsoft Teams or Zoom meeting now replaces the impression you would have given — if you were in a meeting room, sitting across the table from your colleagues. And especially when you are giving a presentation or a leading a customer pitch, having pristine video & audio quality, can actually add more weight and resonance to your words.
It’s not just a nicety to have good conferencing quality anymore — in this day and age, it can actually affect your work performance and help you succeed in your career.
So it’s time to take your virtual meeting quality seriously and get started on up-leveling your video and audio production in your remote conferencing calls!
