June 29, 2023 - As meeting and working in person was no longer an option due to the COVID-19 pandemic, corporate offices around the world were forced to create a completely remote work environment. Since then, many businesses and offices have completely shifted their business model, ultimately offering a version of a hybrid work to their employees. In the last year, it was reported that 41% of workers with jobs, that can be considered remote, are now working a hybrid schedule.
While hybrid work offers immense flexibility to employees and employers alike. It has completely shifted the typical work culture and the way companies connect and communicate with each other and clients. Many businesses have digital solutions that replicate the typical in-person meeting space in order to create "face-time" rapport. Luckily, with the proper solutions and resources, corporations can help accommodate both remote and in-person employees.

With this change comes new needs in technology, as well as a shift in how businesses plan office spaces, meeting rooms, etc. The days of the typical 'board room' are dwindling. Instead, businesses must focus on how to see every virtual face in the room at once and focus less on the number of people the space can fit.
When picking products for a hybrid work environment, it is important to consider the flexibility these solutions provide. For example, in a corporate meeting space where video conferencing is needed, a mobile display cart allows employees to move a largescale, interactive display from room to room. It also allows for interaction with the display while on-camera and easy communication with remote employees. This also allows any room to become a meeting space quickly and easily. The display is not required to be used within only one meeting room being mounted to a wall. It provides the flexibility needed for in-office employees to collaborate with remote employees from any open meeting space.
For offices that are looking for a more permanent mounting solution that allows for mass collaboration of in-office and remote employees, largescale dvLED video walls are another popular solution making waves in the corporate space. This option may not be ideal for every corporation, however, for corporations that regularly host virtual meetings and trainings, the investment is worth it.
Over the past few years, innovators in the AV industry have created a variety of different solutions that meet the needs of hybrid business models. As hybrid work starts to become more the norm, we can expect to see a completely new "corporate meeting space." This can include installing larger digital displays that account for virtual employees and downsizing the typical conference room and table.
