With the recent news that 8.7 million people in the UK want to be able to work flexible hours, the task of arranging a meeting when everyone is in the office is becoming even more of a challenge.
This is only set to increase if businesses follow Microsoft’s recent advice on the matter.
“Business leaders should reimagine how workers operate,” said Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer at Microsoft UK.
“There’s never been a better time to change since there’s a risk that firms are cultivating an environment that traps staff in process and red-tape instead of giving them the opportunity to think and have the necessary head-space to be creative.”
Video conferencing apps are a great way of helping employees to be as involved in meetings and conferences as possible while they are working flexible hours. These apps also enable companies to work with partners regardless of where they are in the world.
Video conferencing doesn’t always have to involve an expensive system either. IT Channel Expert has picked out 10 of the best free apps to do the job. Check them out here.
