Today’s office work is balancing between virtual and in-person meetings. Read more about recreating lifelike meetings remotely.
In the modern office environment, it can often feel like in-person meetings with colleagues have been replaced with endless Zoom calls and virtual meetings. Although the benefits of virtual meetings are undeniable, many employees wish to return to the time when face-to-face interaction with fellow workers was the norm. Fortunately, there is a place for both virtual and in-person meetings in today’s office working environment.
There are some aspects of in-person meetings that virtual meetings or video conferencing just cannot replicate. Most importantly, the face-to-face interaction that is normally possible only when all participants are in the same room is difficult to accomplish virtually.
The biggest drawback of regular virtual meetings is that many non-verbal cues and other nuances of human interaction are left out. Most importantly, small gestures and facial expressions may not come across when only looking at a small screen in front of you.
Video meeting technologies are also prone to delay or poor video and audio quality. This impairs our ability to interpret other people’s feelings through the screen. Not to even mention those in a video meeting who turn off their cameras and remain hidden behind an anonymous profile picture. It can also be difficult to avoid speaking on top of other people or get a turn to speak yourself when interacting in a virtual setting.
For some, there just is no way to replicate the human connection of an in-person meeting, although many technical innovations have certainly tried. In most instances, the attempts to recreate the experience of a real in-person meeting with virtual ones fall short because of technological limitations.
Framery Contact, our revolutionary new product concept can recreate the experience of a real face-to-face conversation using state-of-the-art video meeting technology. The combination of video and audio technologies with visual and acoustic isolation creates an authentic face-to-face experience without the participants being physically present.
Framery Contact’s lifelike in-person meetings are made possible by capturing and transmitting video and audio at the highest possible quality. Meanwhile, the pod’s mirrors and LED lighting enhance the experience and stop video calls from feeling unauthentic. Read more about Framery Contact.
In-person meetings with colleagues and customers are not going anywhere even when face-to-face interactions are being replaced with video calls and remote meetings. However, the convenience and efficiency of virtual meetings are undeniable and many companies are taking full advantage of this by opting for video conferencing whenever possible.
By avoiding certain pitfalls of virtual meetings, offices across industries can improve the productivity and well-being of their employees.
Finally, do not let the ease of having meetings justify having too many of them. Whether you are organizing one virtually, in person or as a hybrid meeting, too many meetings will have a negative impact on employees. Look for ways to make meetings more effective. Make sure to invite only those who are needed, clear room from your calendar for focus time and book the right spaces when having meetings in person.
As much as we may like in-person meetings, finding the right spaces for them in a busy open office can be a challenge.
