The pandemic forced businesses to quickly adapt to remote working, with a lasting impact on every business.
Employees want greater flexibility – and in response, companies need to develop hybrid working strategies.
Almost one in six people now consider flexible working as the top benefit at work, ahead of their salary.
The Jabra Hybrid Ways of Working: 2021 Global Report revealed three out of four staff want to be able to work anywhere in the future.
Work is no longer simply a place you go; it’s something you do.
Rather than authorising a return to the office, companies should consider enabling people to work from anywhere by providing colleagues with supporting technology.
With 85% of people viewing technology as crucial to a ‘work from anywhere’ future, companies need to consider investing in high quality, intuitive technology that is both futureproof and designed to be used anywhere – at home, in the office or on the move.
Technology such as the latest audio and video conferencing solutions, which enable employees to engage and work efficiently in dispersed teams.
Plug-and-play audio and video solutions
Jabra, the world-leading brand in audio, video and collaboration solutions, has a range of user-friendly technology ensuring professionals can be productive anywhere.
The Danish brand offers plug-and-play solutions for the (home) office such as the Jabra Evolve2 range of headsets, engineered to enhance productivity, concentration and collaboration, featuring Active Noise-Cancellation (ANC) and days of battery life.
The lightweight Evolve2 headsets are compatible with all leading UC platforms, including Microsoft Teams and Zoom – making them a futureproof option for companies seeking the perfect hybrid working headset.
Video conferencing solutions are vital for successful collaboration; video helps business professionals engage, accommodates remote learning and provides virtual patient consultancy services.
The PanaCast 50 is the first, new-normal-ready, intelligent video bar that combines immersive video, world-leading audio quality and cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence.
The PanaCast 20 delivers the next generation of intelligent, secure and portable video collaboration.
And with technology rapidly evolving, companies also need software that can keep up.
Jabra Direct ensures that headsets always have the latest firmware, guaranteeing users with the most up-to-date features, whilst Jabra Xpress helps companies boost productivity with free headset analytics and management tools.
Noreen Rafique. Jabra Account Manager for Scotland, explained: “I’m passionate about understanding the challenges businesses face and supporting the implementation of hybrid working strategies here in Scotland.
“I work closely with end-users to identify requirements and help create a plan of work to support employee productivity and collaboration, within a specific workplace strategy.
“It’s the ultimate goal to increase employee wellbeing and boost organisational performance.
“I truly believe that flexible working is the future and businesses that continue to invest in professional technology and give employees autonomy over their working day, can deliver a better working experience – and thus increase productivity.”
