The hybrid work culture norm has changed the future of office culture. The meeting rooms and in-person meetings have been replaced by the four walls of your home/ café and virtual meetings. Hybrid work brings in the best of both the worlds, employees enjoy more flexibility and autonomy which goes a long way in boosting productivity, enhance employer-employee engagement and stickiness to the company. 2021 study done by Cisco on whether employees and employers are ready for hybrid work, revealed that 61% employees acknowledged improvement in work quality followed by 60% employees experiencing increase in productivity. As for employers, they have constant access to diverse talent pool.
Enterprise collaboration tools such as, Microsoft Teams, Zoom Video Communications, Google Hangouts, Skype and others have become part and parcel of the hybrid and remote work culture. But for any company to set-up and run a successful hybrid workplace, connected technology solutions are a ‘MUST’. Regardless of where employees work, these solutions keep the whole workspace ecosystem connected. Today, the IT industry is using various tools to enhance workforce productivity and concentration of their employees. For audio & voice clarity in online meetings, and substantially reducing background noise from speaker and meeting audience, use of AI-driven noise-cancellation solutions has widely become popular. In addition, more and more companies are now subscribing to project management systems, leveraging team collaboration tools (such as huddle rooms), and syncing work apps across devices by using cloud storage. Technology adoption can result in less data and time loss, as well as a reduction in the unpleasantness of shifting to a new work style after two years.

CEO of FluxGen Technologies, Ganesh Shankar mentioned that his team enjoys great conversations in business meetings using ClaerityAI. We don’t have to say – ‘can you hear me, ‘can you hear us?’ We start with our business communication immediately. I have also seen that type of noises that used to come in some of the meetings when people are actually in a noisy environment like I have, has completely been reduced. So, this has made our work also very effective and we have been able to enjoy great conversations despite all the noise around.
