It used to be there was only one way and one place to get work done: at your desk in the office. But as we approach two years of remote work, our ideas about where and how employees can work productively have shifted.

A Well-Designed Hybrid Workplace Benefits Everyone

According to a recent Pulse of the American Worker survey, 68% of American workers say being able to work remotely and on-site is the ideal work model. And this hybrid work model isn’t just a win for employees. A recent report from Accenture revealed that hybrid workforce models are embraced by 63% of high revenue companies, while 69% of companies with negative or no growth have rejected the idea.

However, building a hybrid workplace that maximizes the benefits of both in-person and remote work is no small or simple task. A hybrid workplace has to be more than another place where employees come to sit at their desk and call into Zoom meetings.

“With the return to the office, companies will need to take a closer look at their pre-pandemic conference room set-ups,” said Beth Torgerson, Senior Channel Marketing Manager, LeGrand AV Division. “Will these spaces foster successful collaboration sessions for their hybrid workforce? Or will conversations be stymied because people can’t hear and see each other? What was adequate before the pandemic may no longer be acceptable.”

Get Expert Advice for Deploying a Productive Hybrid Workplace

In our latest guide, “The Hybrid Workplace: Enabling the Future of Work,” we outline the three main challenges companies face when designing and deploying a hybrid work environment, including:

  • Poor audio quality that disrupts virtual meetings
  • Non-flexible technology that can’t meet evolving needs
  • Limited WiFi bandwidth and IT infrastructure that can’t support a larger volume of audio and video streams

Any of those sound familiar?

Our Preferred Vendor Partners also share insight and expertise into must-have AV capabilities that can help you resolve these issues. In particular, companies need technology solutions that ensure a consistent and equitable experience for both on-site and remote workers.

“In today’s hybrid workplace a bad audiovisual experience will no longer be tolerated,” said Chris Merrick, Senior Director of Global Integrated Systems Marketing at Shure. “Technology gaps and insufficiencies not only have to be addressed at the workplace but also for remote workers. Organizations must ensure parity between office and home-based employees.”
