Get the most out of work-life balance

Balancing work and life

Workplaces are becoming more and more lenient on where their employees can work, due to enhancements in technology, making people accessible wherever they are. As of August 2019, a Global Workplace Analytics survey showed that 40% more U.S employers offered flexible workplace options than they did five years ago.

Video conferencing has been a huge enabler of this shift. Employees no longer need to be in a conference room or office setting to take meetings. Meetings can be taken from a home office, a car, even the sidelines of a soccer match.

A ValueWalk article on work/life balance mentions, “we operate in a world where “balance” can be achieved through advancements in technology.  Conference calls have become video calls and most video calling platforms are now integrating other tools that increase the opportunity for collaboration. Most importantly, all of these solutions are available on mobile platforms.”

The ability to work anywhere, anytime, without sacrificing human connection brings more opportunities and flexibility than ever before.

Check out this article to dive deeper on the role mobile platforms play, how team collaboration tools enhance how people collaborate, and how artificial intelligence and virtual assistants are helping people save time on otherwise timely activities.. like taking meeting notes.
