Barco - Meeting room technology is important…and workers feel businesses should be taking it more seriously

We wanted to look at how struggling with technology during meetings and presentations impacts on the stress levels of office workers. We asked 1,000 office workers who run, present or attend meetings about their experiences with meeting-room technology, and their attitudes towards it. Our findings show that nearly three quarters of respondents believe that their organization could take meeting room technology more seriously, with 53% believing that their organization should invest in better technology for meetings. Incredibly, a third of people think their company doesn’t have the right technology to adequately facilitate meetings. Yet why is this? Organizations appear to be facing a range of barriers that are preventing the improvement of meeting room technology.

For starters, nearly half of respondents feel that their companies do not view meeting room technology as a priority. A third of people report a lack of budget and 26% believe that their business is unwilling to invest in better technology. 20% believe that the lack of investment is due to reluctance from senior management and 16% feel that their organization is overly reliant on ageing technology.

These findings suggest that many workers do not think their organizations perceive the potential value of meeting-room technology to be worth the investment. However, 86% of office workers that host or attend meetings believe that improving meeting room technology would lead to an increase in productivity. Perhaps if organizations were more aware of the potential productivity benefits of better technology, they might be more willing to prioritize budget and resources towards investment.
