The future of hybrid work involves all sorts of changes to our traditional workspaces, but one of the most key components of this shift is the rise of digital meetings.
Of course, a hybrid work model demands a balance between in-person and digital interaction, which means you may have to get a bit creative when it comes to finding ways to keep everyone involved and engaged.
Fortunately, we’ve got some tips that can help steer you in the right direction.
Any great hybrid meeting relies on a foundation that’s designed to meet specific needs.
Below are a few things to prioritize as you begin to develop a space for your team:
Just like we might expect from a traditional, in-person meeting, choices that make it hard to interact with others or feel connected to your peers can be a real mood-killer.
To avoid creating a space that feels tiring, overwhelming, or just plain boring, steer clear of things like:
Hybrid, virtual meetings have already become a staple of our modern office strategy, which is much more focused on finding flexible work solutions for everyone, regardless of where they may be.
But, for these work solutions to actually be solutions, they need to be deliberate, thoughtful, and engaging.
So, what can you do to make sure that you’ve created a hybrid space that your team will actually want to work in?
Collaboration, patience, and a sense of community are all crucial pieces of the hybrid workspace puzzle. In fact, according to figures collected by Forbes, employees who feel their voices are heard are 4.6 times more likely to feel empowered enough to do their best work.
Make sure your organization’s employees feel in touch with others by breaking the ice – that may mean daily check-ins, group bonding or team-building activities, or simply encouraging team members to engage with one another on a personal level.
It may seem to go without saying, but the importance of switching things up and bringing fresh, new ideas to your hybrid meetings can’t be understated.
After all, about 1 in 4 employees who do most or part of their work from home are worn out by constant video calls and online work.
Interactive presentations, group discussions, and creative activities are all examples of ways you might keep things interesting.
Not all participation has to look (or sound!) the same way and inviting your team members to find solutions that allow them to fully participate in the ways that they are able can go a long way.
Make use of your video conferencing software’s chat features, for instance, or break down your meeting into small, personalized groups to facilitate more one-on-one interaction.
