Meetings aren’t working, according to a recent whitepaper from Verizon and Boston Consulting Group. An issue long before the pandemic, it’s one that’s become heightened in today’s anytime, anywhere work environment. To better align with shifting workforce dynamics, Verizon Business today announced updates across the desktop, mobile and Portal applications of BlueJeans Meetings to help streamline and facilitate more immersive, inclusive and engaging meetings.
Between the personalization of work, the great reflection, a major skills shortage across industries, and a new generation becoming the dominant majority in the workforce, employee experience has quickly risen to the top of the business priorities list. With new BlueJeans Meetings features aimed at personalizing the meeting experience to improve individual and team meeting interactions and engagement, or remove the need to meet altogether, Verizon Business is helping to drive effective collaboration.
“No two meetings are alike, nor are the people attending them,” said Chris Lewter, VP and General Manager, BlueJeans by Verizon. “Similarly though, we are all striving for engagement, both in our personal and professional lives. And as organizations continue to place more emphasis on enhancing the employee experience as a way to drive inclusivity and retain and attract top talent, this next phase of remote and hybrid work will be all about providing the right tools to drive flexible work practices that adapt to different work engagement styles and personalities.”
