How to set up a remote meeting for your team
For many companies around the world, working from home has quickly become the new normal. Though we are more connected than ever, it can still be tricky to maintain the energy and focus of your office environment when at home - especially if you’re usually part of a tight-knit team.
One of the best ways to stay on task and connected with your team is to hold regular remote meetings. Whether it's a monthly review or just a quick 5 minute chat with colleagues, video conferencing is ideal for ensuring everyone is on the same page and ready to deal with the tasks at hand.
What’s needed for a great remote meeting?
To make the most of your video calls, it’s crucial to ensure your video setup is up to the job. Here’s a few things to keep in mind when you’re preparing to take your meeting online.
Choose a platform for everyone: There are plenty of great video conferencing solutions available right now, including Zoom or Skype and Google Hangouts. Make sure your team agrees on using a single platform, so that meetings are always quick and easy to organize
Clear audio is crucial: We’ve probably all been on a call that’s been plagued by poor audio quality. Bad sound can range from an annoying distraction to an all-out meeting-killer. Whilst built-in laptop mics usually lack quality, specialist equipment can be expensive and require installation.
Always easy to use: You never know when you might need to jump on a call. To make sure you’re always ready to dive in, it’s best to opt for a solution that requires minimum maintenance effort. Nobody wants to deal with dead batteries or lost cables when preparing for a key meeting.
