Post Pandemic: Are you having face to face meetings?
Our post pandemic world has left us scarred, forcing us to think about the decisions we make every minute of the day. Have we washed our hands as we stepped in the door? Are you wearing a mask? Have you verified that the person you met for coffee hadn’t been in contact with anyone with coronavirus in the last 14 days? Was the coffee table and chairs sanitised thoroughly before you sat down? These are questions many are asking themselves with every interaction as a form of personal health safety and awareness, and while it makes sense that people want to protect themselves, there is an easier method that does not bring with it explosive anxiety-triggering habits.
In March, the world was thrown into chaos, with the pandemic leaving no stone unturned, no country untouched. Every major city in the world felt its cold grasp, crippling industries and sending whole countries into lockdown. Many non-essential companies were forced to close due to lockdowns, but those who were able to remain online, activated remote working modes. As we move forward, companies are looking for ways to become more agile during this metamorphic phase our world seems to be progressing through. Virtual video chat has become a mainstay in our world. Here are some enjoyable benefits of having business calls through video chat rather than face to face meetings.
Eliminate pandemic worry
This is a big one, but shouldn’t just be shrugged off. Mental health rose to the forefront during the first pandemic lockdown as thousands struggled with anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. As the infection rate yo-yos up and down, we exist in a state of disequilibrium, not knowing if it’s safe to have meetings or not. Video chat completely eliminates that worry and ensures that your business keeps moving, regardless of the pandemic constraints.
Ah yes, good old British traffic. With video meetings, you can be certain that you will not have to worry about the traffic getting to your meetings. No more rushing for the train or running for the bus, nor scrambling to get to the car with 3 seconds to spare before the heavens unleash a torrent of rain. Video meetings require very little travel. In fact, it’s probably just a few metres from the sofa to your work-from-home desk, possibly making it the most efficient route when having back to back meetings.
Shoes? Uggs only please
Sayonara stilletos! One of the best parts of video meetings is no uncomfortable shoes! While it’s best practice to brush your hair and wear a decent shirt to look presentable, most video meetings are only visible from the waist up. Some have attested to wearing un-ironed shirts with jackets over them, as the creases aren’t that visible. However, we do encourage to wear trousers though, in case you need to stand for some reason and that’s not the way most want to be remembered at the office. Video meetings allow our feet to remain nice and comfy rather than trapped in shoes that only look good.
