For companies and institutions around the world, the pressure is on to create a plan to bring in new technology to support the return-to-office and enable productivity for hybrid teams. Hybrid is a complex new model which constitutes a fundamental challenge in how we will work moving forward. According to Microsoft’s latest Work Trends Index from March 2022, 38 percent of the workforce are now hybrid workers (an increase of seven points since 2021) and more than half of all workers (53 percent) are likely to consider transitioning to hybrid work this year.
Along with this evolution of the workforce, we’ve seen a rapid change in the technology designed to solve the problems introduced with the shift to hybrid. New solutions are rapidly coming to market, including webcams and speakerphones designed for home offices, headsets for mobile workers and video conferencing solutions that enable organizations to retrofit office space for a new era of collaboration.
With all this new tech coming to market, it’s imperative to stay up to date on the latest solutions. One of the best ways to accomplish this is through the simplicity and speed of a virtual briefing at one of our Poly Experience Centers. Here are three ways that virtual briefings can improve your productivity and help ease the transition to hybrid work:
- Quick virtual demonstrations let you see new features and products. Short on time, but don’t want to miss out on the latest and greatest technology updates? With the click of a button, you can be connected to experts who give several technology demonstrations through an innovative virtual studio. In just 20 minutes, you’ll gain a good understanding of the benefits of the latest collaborative solutions.
- Ready for a more in-depth tour, but unable to travel to a Poly Experience Center? Get a customized virtual briefing! In 1-2 hours, you can receive a customized, in-depth virtual briefing that is tailored specifically for your collaboration needs. Poly’s sales leadership and technical experts will be on hand to answer your questions and explain the business benefits. These in-depth tours are especially great for multinational corporations or those with complex network and infrastructure requirements. Special NDA roadmap sessions with virtual demonstrations are also available.
- Host a virtual briefing event to educate your peers, partners and customers on the best solutions for hybrid work and return-to-office. If you have stakeholders in different locations, you can help them gain a faster, better understanding of collaborative technology solutions through a virtual briefing event. These don’t demand a big budget or long planning cycles—in 1-2 weeks, we can help you set up a nationwide virtual briefing event. The sessions can be coordinated and co-hosted with specific ecosystem and alliance partners, such as Microsoft, Zoom or Tencent Meeting, to best suit your environment and collaboration needs.
Don’t miss out on an opportunity to talk to Poly experts and see more hybrid work solutions during these live, highly productive virtual sessions. A virtual briefing is an excellent step toward finding the ideal solution for your organization’s needs and workstyles.
