Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) to Drive a Smart Hybrid Work Environment
According to the 2021 PwC US Remote Work survey, US executives are planning new investment to support hybrid working. The report cites 72% of executives surveyed plan increased investment for virtual collaboration tools and 57% report expanded budget for conference rooms with enhanced virtual connectivity. This aligns with 87% of employees who say a return to the office is a top-rated need for team collaboration and building relationships.
While traditional UC conference solutions are highly effective for remote meeting participants, new challenges arise within a hybrid model blending remote and in-person meeting participants. A solution needs to enable an engaging experience for both groups, support the host’s personal choice of video conferencing tool, and work easily in any environment from a traditional UC room to a non-UC space equipped only with a room display, all while meeting company safety protocols.
