When the option for in person meetings isn’t possible, a robust, reliable video technology is critical. Not only can it support communication, but it can facilitate collaboration and synergy among those working remotely.
Video Technology Removes Barriers for Remote Workers
Video technology can solve many of the struggles associated with remote working, from feelings of isolation and loneliness to the ability to communicate and collaborate both synchronously and asynchronously. According to annual State of Remote Work reports conducted by Buffer, communication and collaboration, as well as loneliness, are frequently at the top of the list of challenges reported by remote workers.
Ongoing Communication is Key to Successful Projects
Real-time video conferencing provides an effective way to have synchronous conversations. Rather than relying on email or other forms of written communication, which lack the nuance of tone and facial expression, video meetings provide instantaneous feedback and can reduce misunderstanding and confusion. Real-time collaboration allows for immediate problem-solving, with no back-and-forth communication.
Solving Problems Together, No Matter Where You Work
One of the challenges of remote working is the ability to collaborate with colleagues. The YuJa Enterprise Video Platform facilitates collaboration with whiteboards that provide a canvas for annotation; access to file uploads, video chats and shared files, where employees can work on projects and solve problems together; and the ability to collaborate without application downloads or installs with the Video Conferencing platform.
Sharing Asynchronously Keeps Everyone in the Loop
Work doesn’t always happen at the same time for all employees. Asynchronous sharing and communication is perfect for employees in different time zones or who have other obligations that demand time during typical work hours. Employees can record to collaborate or troubleshoot and others can watch when it’s convenient for them. This way, no one is excluded from important conversations.
Understanding and addressing the challenges of remote work is essential to effective business operations. With tools in YuJa’s Enterprise Video Platform, companies, corporations and institutions of all sizes can proactively provide the tools their employees need to succeed, creating a stronger, more effective workforce.
