Hybrid Work: How Microsoft Teams and Office 365 Can Help

The shift we’ve seen toward embracing remote work over the last year and a half has been one of the most significant changes in the ways in which we work that we’ve seen for a long, long time. Microsoft have been conducting research and surveys in order to understand the impact these changes have had on employees and the workplace – the data has shown that while most thoroughly enjoy the remote work lifestyle, there is still a need to feel a part of a team and have some kind of in-person engagement included too.

Splitting time between both in-person as well as remote work is something that most companies are unsure how to handle. There are numerous ways that Microsoft products are able to make a difference and improve the ways in which this can work successfully.

There are three main areas where Microsoft tools play a role and how you can make sure you’re using them in the best ways, let’s have a look:

Your Audio Setup

We recommend using a Microsoft Teams certified speaker puck for group meetings so that everyone can be clearly heard while speaking.

Your PC/Laptop Setup

Make sure when you’re logging into a call that your camera is on and your microphone audio is off. Participating in virtual meetings has become more common.

Your Collaborative Setup

Always ensure you have the right understanding of what’s expected in these calls and share any content or updates directly through your Microsoft Teams to make things easier and keep them in one spot.
