Working from home (WFH) used to be reserved for teams like salespeople on the road, tech start-ups, and freelancers.
But, for the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic pushed many employers to abide by new quarantine and social distancing standards to keep themselves, their staff, and their customers safe - and an entire workforce was suddenly working from home.
This change in environment resulted in the new WFH movement.
A recent study from Upwork reported on our future workforce, stating, “38% of full time / permanent employees will predominantly work remotely.”
As employees began to work from home, most were limited to a laptop and headphones, with no other tools to support their workflow and collaboration with their team members.
With this new wave of change, how will organizations adapt and prepare their remote employees to maintain a productive, collaborative workflow?
What will the new WFH office look like? And, more importantly, what technology will be provided to remote participants, to ensure their working experience is on par with their in-office counterparts?
We’ve built a range of collaboration solutions to support remote workers - and specifically, to connect them to their colleagues working in the office.
To start, you can supercharge your executive home office with ThinkHub, T1V’s flagship collaboration product.
Start your day by organizing your tasks by priority, using the Groups feature on ThinkHub’s Interactive Canvas.
Drag and drop content like PDFs, images, and videos - and create Notes to fully visualize and categorize the extent of your workload.
Everyone thinks and works differently, and because of that, ThinkHub is designed to aid every form of collaboration with its robust set of tools.
Discuss upcoming projects with clients or connect with your team by hosting virtual meetings, all within the same ThinkHub session.
What’s more, ThinkHub has integrated multiple video conferencing applications so that there is no need to choose a single VC platform. Hop on a call with Zoom, Webex, MS Teams, Skype for Business, BlueJeans - you name it. This platform agnostic VC feature allows you to transition between video conferencing meetings with ease.
An up-to-date WFH office is now vital due to travel restrictions resulting from the global pandemic. These restrictions have halted many in-person business meetings, making ThinkHub an even more powerful tool to connect disparate teams.
Stay connected to your in-room team from your WFH office. Even from your home office, the meeting experience is the same for all participants - so no one gets left behind, and you are able to participate as if you were in the room.
Visualize an endless amount of content with ThinkHub. Participants can share an unlimited number of BYOD™ devices to the Canvas all at the same time to view multiple pieces of content side by side.
Access the Canvas to view, point, and virtually control with your BYOD™ device for a seamless interactive experience.
Join a virtual collaboration session using the T1V AirConnect App. AirConnect allows participants to connect to a ThinkHub session from any network, anywhere in the world, and from any mobile BYOD™ device.
Provide real-time feedback with the Sketches feature. Annotate anywhere on the Canvas or choose a specific image or browser window to make note on.
Host planning and strategy sessions to brainstorm and work through complex projects. Use Groups to organize multiple pieces of content, like documents and websites.
The WFH environment is evolving to become a permanent fixture for the workforce. Make sure you have the collaboration tools in your home office to stay connected to your team.
