With the effects of COVID-19 forcing businesses of all sizes to close their offices and ask their staff to work from home, remote meetings have become more of a daily occurrence. As teams began to familiarize themselves with new remote software, the benefits of hosting meetings while working from home became undeniable. So undeniable that for some businesses, remote meetings are here to stay.

Think back to your first remote meeting and how it went, now compare it to your most recent remote meeting, and again to your last meeting in person. While there will be some stand out differences, there’s no question as to how similar they will be as well. With many companies making the slow and careful transition back to a traditional office environment, it’s important to consider the many benefits of remote meetings and the amazing opportunity they could pose for your business.

Safe Time and Money

When looking to implement a permanent remote meeting software for your business, the costs are always reasonable. Especially for companies that incur significant travel, time and expense costs. Most remote meeting software subscriptions pay for themselves instantly by eliminating the need for their staff to commute to the office. 

C customized for Your Business’ Needs

Online meetings can come in various forms. Whether you are giving a presentation, training a new employee or just simply discussing the needs of a current client, most remote meeting software can be customized to help you in any situation. The flexibility offered by remote meeting software can also open up new opportunities within your team that will freshen up your meetings and keep everyone engaged.

Allows New Levels of Interaction

Whether you are having a 1-on-1 meeting or broadcasting a presentation to thousands of customers, remote meeting softwares can accommodate any level of interaction from attendees located anywhere in the world with an internet connection. With enhanced voice, video and text capabilities built into the software, everyone’s voice can and will be heard.

Allows Employees to Work at Their Own Pace

As the pace of each work day continues to increase and vary for each team member, hosting online meetings that are automatically recorded is another way to give autonomy to your employees. If a staff member is occupied with a customer or putting out a fire and their presence is not required, they can always go back and review meeting details when they have a free moment.

Alleviates Pressure to Conform

During this challenging economic climate, businesses have to make tough decisions. Often when meeting in person when making a team decision, some members may not feel confident in sharing their opinions and may feel pressure to comply with the majority sentiment. An awesome benefit to remote meetings is that it allows employees to step away from the pressure felt in person and safely share their thoughts with confidence.

With all these benefits highlighted it’s obviously important to note that traditional in person meetings are still very important aspects of workplace communication. There are definitely times when bringing your team together in person is the best decision. What it really comes down to is making sure your team members have he tools they need to be successful and how businesses can provide support to help foster that success.
