In our latest Q4 2020 key workplace trend survey data, analyzed in T1V’s Work From Anywhere white paper - we asked people to provide insight into their typical work environment.
Nowadays, a typical work environment includes both the in-office meeting room and employees’ WFH spaces.
We found that approximately 80% of respondents have content sharing capabilities both in-office and at home.
What’s more, about 70% of people reported that their meeting rooms have remote participant access, with close to 90% stating that remote participant access exists in their WFH space.
Overall, the takeaways were clear: in-room meeting rooms touted more hardware-based solutions, like conference telephones, digital displays (touchscreens), and speakers / microphones. For example, over 50% of meeting rooms house touchscreens, whereas less than 20% of home offices have digital displays.
Comparatively, WFH spaces - where many people just use a laptop to work - rely more heavily on software based solutions that focus on remote participant access, a shared digital workspace, and video conferencing capabilities.
This makes sense, as fewer than 40% of WFA study participants reported that they work from a dedicated home office.
