Human resource (HR) departments are entrusted with an organization's biggest asset—its workforce. That's why HR professionals are embracing new tools and technology, including video-enabled business applications, to help ensure that they are connecting, communicating, and collaborating in the most efficient ways possible. By becoming adopters of video conferencing and related solutions, HR leaders can make improvements in areas including talent acquisition, training and development, employee engagement, and more.
Video conferencing has evolved over the past few years from being a room-bound, high-maintenance, resource-intensive technology to being a versatile, scalable, and cost-effective solution. Technologies like the cloud, mobile, and social are also changing the way video is being leveraged for business purposes. As a result, several new trends have formed that are steering the course of the video industry.
These are exciting times for the video conferencing industry. The popularity of video as a preferred mode of communication is growing exponentially in the enterprise. Modern businesses are beginning to feel the importance of collaboration more strongly than ever, owing to today’s increasingly global marketplace. As companies are realizing the need to support a diverse and distributed workforce across several time-zones, they are looking for efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable ways for their globally dispersed employees to collaborate—quickly and easily—regardless of where they are located.
