Remote work was presented, in many cases, as an option to be able to continue with corporate functions despite isolation; however, technology companies had been preparing for several years to meet the demand for this growing trend.

The supply of cloud services has been growing steadily for at least a decade, and this offer has driven the development of technologies -both hardware and software – that will allow them to make the most of it; this is how many entities found themselves at the beginning of the emergency with sufficient tools to face the crisis.

Depending on the market, it has been possible to classify companies in several ways depending on the use of technologies: those that believed that the cloud, virtuality or remote work was never going to be necessary; those who had cloud services deployed and yet continued to work in a fixed office; those who worked remotely or hybridly; those who waited for the evolution of the market to see where they should go, or even those who, due to their economic activity, could not consider remote work as an option.

However, at the beginning of 2020 remote work became almost the only possible way of working and it was there, when companies that did not have technologies to work remotely had to make the technical leap; while those that had implemented these technologies and did not use them, had to prepare their teams to use them; even many companies that were already working in a hybrid way – remote and face-to-face – had to increase their resources in order to have more coverage and take greater advantage of virtuality.

The implementation processes generated in some cases traumas, due to the fact that large migrations of services to the cloud, massive installations of unified communications platforms, purchases of equipment and softwares, as well as trainings to users in these technologies had to be made; however, once these processes were completed, the financial, administrative, IT and human resources departments, managed to realize that remote work could bring great advantages, not only to the organization but also to internal users, and in some cases to the environment.

“Remote work saves travel time that in the case of large cities can be several hours a day; it also makes it possible to reduce the fixed costs of keeping certain numbers of people in offices, since the consumption of public services is lower, as well as the costs of rents in physical offices or branches; it also allows productivity to be increased, this thanks to saving time on the move and achieving work in controlled and comfortable environments; even remote work has had a positive impact on the environment, generating less polluting emissions due to reductions in travel” Says Mercedes Fonseca, Manager of the South Cone par a Jabra Latin America, being one of the topics she will address in her participation in the 5th Congress America Digital – 100% Online, where she will reflect on the main issues that define the future of remote work.

Having adequate technologies has resulted in communications being able to remain optimal in remote work; having comfortable, durable audio devices with great sound quality, and noise-cancelling microphones has helped companies maintain, and even increase their performance, even though the teams now work sparsely.

Video is also part of this category, since, although you have the concession to be able to work remotely, collaboration is still as necessary as before; telepresence facilitated by appropriate teams, which can be adapted to existing unified communications platforms, and which can provide immersive experiences, facilitate teamwork and increase productivity, despite not sharing the same physical space.

After a year and a half of the pandemic, the choice of technologies for remote work continues to increase, as the reception of this form of work is increasing, and the impact on the performance of users is much more than positive. The constant evolution of audio and video devices, as well as the changes in unified communications platforms, added to the advantages it has brought in different corporate aspects, make remote work increasingly attractive, and that, despite being in many cases with partial or total openings, many companies continue to bet on this modality.

According to the executive Mercedes, we can conclude that, although remote work came as a temporary solution, it is here to stay, because once companies have made the investment, and have prepared their team, they end up realizing that the advantages that this way of working offers, generate great benefits in almost all corporate aspects, and Jabra has always been at the forefront in offering innovative video and audio devices that help companies maximize performance among their employees.
