Improving employee relationships with enterprise video solutions

It’s important to the ongoing positive environment of the workplace that people are able to successfully and easily interface with one another. These requirements demand a certain amount of flexibility and engagement protocol that isn’t available in some settings wherein people are always busy or continually out of the office, resulting in some staff members never being able to catch up with one another. When these circumstances are allowed to persist, these elements can cause employees to start feeling detached from the business. This can often trigger an ongoing cycle of dissatisfaction and engagement issues, eventually possibly harming retention capabilities.

Forging better relations
Enterprise video solutions help resolve some of these issues, as recordings are readily available and assuage the ongoing angst that may be generated in work environments where communication is not as applicable or immediate to members of the workforce. These conditions continue to accumulate and permeate many parts of the business landscape. Thanks to the rising presence and importance of video communication, concerns like remote workforce, mobile applications and portability restrictions can be remedied by simply implementing tools that allow personnel to access and manipulate recordings whenever they are needed.

The presence of enterprise video solutions is on the rise thanks to the quality of relationships these assets can help foster. The ability to connect with someone in a face to face manner, even when that individual is miles or days away, allows employees to feel a deeper attachment and sense of agency toward that individual. This is the bridge through which more remote and mobile workers are kept attached to the current setting of enterprise operations.

As Nunatsiaq Online reported, the presence of video communication has been shown to improve the quality of relationships and mental health in remote populations. What’s more, these resources are expanding the lines of conventional engagement by helping people at a distance resolve problems and gain insight from others without being forced to travel any great lengths. Simply logging on to an enterprise video portal and making use of the recordings stored therein gives people a sense of relief due to the level and clarity of interaction.

Closing the distance
The source pointed out that the Nunavut area is a remote part of Canada with a sparse population that, despite its minimal density, is still in need of education, communication and other forms of business agency. That’s why the region is now investing in video for business resources that will help bridge the gaps between residences and companies in a way that allows everyone in the region better access to informative resources. This methodology helps boost connectivity and remove stressors related to sole operations. When people feel connected to a larger group, it helps take some of the anxiety out of working alone, a situation that can be very taxing on the mind and productivity as a result.

“When you help students in the North connect with the larger communities in the south, and perhaps more importantly connect with each other, we are going to see a transformation of our education systems,” said Mary Simon, chairperson of the National Committee on Inuit Education. “It will help students prepare to succeed in the 21st century.”

Forbes added that the most successful organizations in Asia frequently make use of video communication systems. These dense areas of population make use of recordings in much the same way as the Nunavut region, except that instead of bridging gaps out of the lack of physical opportunities, the pace of life and business in Asian countries is such that people need more flexibility in their learning and interaction options. The sense of agency and connectivity is the same and is therefore a universal boost to relationships from video for business.
