What are hybrid meetings? Definition
A hybrid meeting is a meeting where a part of the audience joins from the office and another part joins remote, enabled by audio and video conferencing technology with a strong focus on content sharing.
Why your business need hybrid meetings?
When businesses opt to enable hybrid meeting in the workplace, they have several reasons, often related to time constraints, reducing budgets and their carbon footprint. But mostly these companies realize that they want to enable true collaboration and foster innovation even when not everyone is present in the office.
Today, over 50% of all meetings is fully remote, which is twice as many as last year. Taking local regulations for the COVID-19 pandemic in mind, many enterprises have gone for a full WFH policy wherever possible at the beginning of the crisis. Today some parts of the world are planning to get (and even getting) employees to return to the office in a mixed work model. So, it comes as no surprise that already 23% of meetings today are hybrid meetings. A number that is more than likely to go up in future, when restrictions are lifted and more normal work regimes can be taken up again. We’ll probably see a shift to a better balance of remote, face-to-face and hybrid meetings.
