Steelcase recently sent over the following infographic and video, which both bring up some interesting questions.
The basic premise is that as our workplaces become more distributed, video will become a much more dominant feature within them. With increasing video conferencing and video collaboration, it will be important for these experiences to improve dramatically so that people will feel more comfortable participating in them.
If you’re anything like me, when calling via Skype or Google Hangout, you spend most of the time looking at yourself trying to make your neck not look fat because the laptop is at a ridiculously low angle.
So while Steelcase has begun creating designing products to create better video experiences, it does seem like a good time to begin thinking about if and how your company will begin to integrate video into your office design.
Some questions to consider:
- Does your workplace provide adequate spaces for professional video conferences?
- Can multiple people easily participate in a video conference?
- Do your employees have the ability to participate in video meetings?
