T1V’s Work From Anywhere Study examines organizational challenges and key workplace trends within the hybrid model of work (a hybrid work environment supports both in-room and remote participants).
The study found that the majority of employees in all industries across the enterprise plan to have a blended schedule - where they work from BOTH the office and work from home - for the foreseeable future.
If we know teams are going to continue to work from anywhere, it is paramount for hybrid teams to have tools to help them stay connected. Visual collaboration software can aid in keeping teams as productive as possible, no matter where they are.
ThinkHub drives teamwork through its shared interactive Canvas. Blended teams can access the ThinkHub Canvas and visualize and collaborate from the in-room touchscreen or their individual at-home devices.
With more people working from home, the ways in which we work are changing. Team tasks in workflows - from brainstorming, to project management, feedback, and follow-up - all face additional challenges while we navigate the new landscape of work.
ThinkHub helps remote teams by reducing distance disparity, so that all collaboration participants can equally contribute to any virtual working session. Here are the 5 ways ThinkHub helps hybrid team collaboration.
Run recurring, interactive meetings
It’s easy to run weekly check-in meetings with ThinkHub - whether it’s for a project, product design, or collaborative huddle with internal teams or external partners. Save the ThinkHub Session with your weekly reports on the Canvas for quick access and simple set up. This helps you start your weekly meeting without scrambling for the correct documentation beforehand.
Organize and easily share massive amounts of content
Send images, multi-page PDFs, web browser windows, videos, and more to ThinkHub’s massive digital Canvas for both your in-room and remote teams to see. Compare documents side by side, or focus a piece of content full-screen on the Canvas. ThinkHub houses all of your content in one place so you’re not frantically switching between browser windows and files on your laptop while trying to simultaneously screen share in a meeting (we’ve all been there).
Gather and save feedback
Collect data in real-time through an interactive feedback session with your hybrid team. Facilitators can ask questions and meeting participants can answer in different ways - like sending Notes or Sketches to the Canvas. Arrange the feedback on the Canvas in Groups, and save your Session so you can refer to the feedback at any time for future project improvements. You can even password protect the ThinkHub Session to keep all feedback confidential.
Video conference AND collaborate
Video conferencing is important for blended teams to stay connected to one another, even when everyone is working apart. ThinkHub features video conferencing integration for applications like BlueJeans, Webex, MS Teams, and Zoom - and allows users to video conference while visually collaborating on the Canvas.
Utilize your existing platforms and applications
Today’s teams work across multiple platforms like Google Workspace, Office 365, web-based dashboards, productivity tools, and CRMs. The never ending list of applications that hybrid teams use for a single meeting can quickly become confusing and counterproductive. ThinkHub supports all of your daily team web-based applications in a single, virtual environment - and you can actively edit and collaborate on live documents, together.
