If your organization is like most, it has team members spread out in different locations serving customers in various regions, or simply working remotely in a flexible work environment. These remote team members often interact with your in-house employees, whether they represent an arm of management or other non-remote operations.
As much as remote work can significantly benefit an organization, remote workers can feel isolated, which can ultimately impact their productivity. One of the most useful tools for increasing the productivity of remote workers is video conferencing. When in-person communication isn’t an option, video conferencing is preferred for feeling connected with co-workers. There are numerous applications and platforms for video conferencing and collaboration. Some, such as Cisco WebEx, are industry standards but can be expensive. Others are growing in popularity and may even be offered free or at a low cost. (Check out our list of the best free video conferencing apps for solo users, educators, and more.)
