Well, we made it. 2020 is behind us and now it’s all about making 2021 a great year. We are excited to see that customers are actively planning and budgeting for the return to the office and classroom. We understand your sense of urgency in these endeavours, and you have our commitment that the ScreenBeam team will be by your side providing the right resources to help ensure your contactless meeting and learning space projects go smoothly.
If you haven’t noticed, ‘hybrid’ is the big buzz word for 2021 and it’s for a good reason. Both workspaces and classrooms continue to go through a technology transformation to accommodate the remote work & in-office environments we are in and will continue to be in for the long haul. Certainly this trend was already happening pre-Covid, but has been rapidly accelerated for many.
According to the recent IDC report on Remote and Hybrid Work, North America plans to continue working remotely, however 38% of companies are prioritizing workplace transformation investments. For Europe, a quarter of companies plan to work primarily from home, though legislation is in the works to allow for better hybrid models. Asia/Pacific seems to be much further along as the report stated that 74% of organizations will return to the office full-time in a “post-vaccine” world. Simply put – It’s going to take time, but we will get there.
In a recent Collaborative Tech Talks podcast, I had the pleasure in addressing how employers will need to adjust and reallocate budgets to ensure their workspaces are healthy, safe and support collaboration for their staff and guests. I hope you will take a listen!
Here’s to a safe and positive beginning to the first quarter of the new year. Wherever you find yourself around the world, at home or in the office, know that ScreenBeam will continue to be there to support your growing hybrid needs.
