The last few years have dramatically changed how everyone does business, including how we work as individuals and teams and how we manage our own work-life balance.
Many companies are in the process of developing plans to position them as employers of choice, addressing the needs of both employees and those they serve with in-person and remote work. Companies are tasked with finding a middle ground and supporting their teams as they evolve and implement new ways of working.
Being an Employer of Choice
According to a recent survey conducted by IDG Communications and Marketpulse Research on behalf of Panduit, the number of desk employees working in a hybrid capacity is expected to grow post-pandemic to 31% of employees, up from 18% in January 2020. On average, 27% expect to be fully remote, up from the pre-pandemic average of 20%. With companies incorporating new technologies to support hybrid work, it's easier than ever to offer employees options that give them flexibility and keep them engaged in the company culture. In many companies, online communication and collaboration worked when all employees were remote, and now, it's up to IT and Facilities teams to create that same experience for a hybrid environment.
Investment in Technology
Going forward, companies need to focus on health and safety, collaboration, space optimization, and the technologies required to support these key elements. AV equipment that enables employees to use their individual devices to connect wirelessly to present content is preferred. In-room cameras can give remote participants the ability to see the entire room and jump in, making them a true part of the conversation. Investing in these technologies allows for future changes as well, enabling a fully scalable solution that evolves to meet your evolving needs.
Making It All Possible
Atlona Room Kits enable quick, repeatable conference room designs that reduce the amount of time required for upgrades and allow you to easily make future changes. These designs are pre-configured, meaning less installation time and faster, more reliable designs. Each room kit is tailored to a specific space (like huddle rooms, small conference rooms, medium conference rooms, and training rooms) and provides ways for content to be presented via a display or video conferencing. Each kit includes everything you need to support truly effective hybrid meetings: video source, control, display, networking, microphone, audio, and camera.
All of the components are preconfigured and tested. By the time your kit arrives onsite, the work is already 80% complete. The Atlona Room Kits are ready to use in hours, rather than days.
If you're looking for AV solutions that allow you to quickly update multiple rooms, make future adjustments without needing a technology overhaul, and create a truly effective hybrid experience, this is the solution for you.
