Colleagues in the conference room. Others in the living room. Hybrid work made meetings even worse. Welcome to the hell of the hybrid meeting. Throw in the related side effects – office-people often ignoring the video-call people and that guy who always forgets to mute – and you're left longing for the simpler times of toilet-paper shortages, double-masking and all-day Zoom.
The hybrid model has emerged as the leading choice for many companies, with 42% of people with remote-capable jobs working partly at home and 39% working entirely from home, according to a February 2022 Gallup poll.
Microsoft, Google, Zoom and others are trying to solve the problems. The solutions won't fix everything. But there are big developments coming, along with creative – and some free – options you can start trying with your colleagues right now.
