Take a minute and think back to the days of cameras that required actual rolls of film.
You remember the drill… you took a picture, and then had to wait for weeks until you’d finished the roll of film, gotten it developed, and then picked it up only to realize that you didn’t even remember taking half of the pictures!
Or maybe you can recall watching your mom print out photos at the Kodak store and then spend her weekend hours carefully arranging them in a photo book. If she was feeling really over the top, maybe she even added in a little caption to go with it or wrote who each person was on the back of the photo in her fluid cursive.
Now, we look forward to the notification from Facebook or TimeHop that shows us what we posted two, three, five, or even ten years ago. That moment or that picture that we’d completely forgotten about pops up.
And those memories can be really encouraging and nostalgic.
- Maybe you’ve lost 100 pounds since that picture someone snagged of you at the family reunion.
- Maybe you were imagining what it would be like to drop everything and move across the world to another country – and you made it happen!
- Maybe you thought back in 2009 that you were at the top of your game, but now you look at your life, job, or family and things are even better than you dreamed.
Better Than Ever…
And that’s exactly what we have seen with Cisco Webex! Recently, we were looking back at our “corporate memories” and rediscovered this news release. Back in 2009, Cisco was glowing over the reports from their Teleworker Survey which revealed that “telecommuting significantly increased employee productivity, work-life flexibility, and job satisfaction”.
Employees raved about higher productivity, improved timeliness, increased collaboration abilities, improvements in overall work quality. Not to mention an improved quality of life and the connection of telecommuting with their overall satisfaction in their job.
And that was in 2009!
The benefits of productivity and efficiency are even more relevant in today’s corporate space. According to an international study by flexible workspace leader International Workplace Group,
50% of employees globally are working outside of their main office
headquarters for at least 2.5 days a week.
Best Is Yet To Come…
That’s a significant amount of teleworking! And it’s because with companies like Cisco Webex providing the right collaboration tools, and Meet Me In The Cloud ready to train, adopt, and support end-users, there is nothing to stop the great work of flexible workspaces and teleworking.
But don’t get stuck in the past and just be satisfied with what you were offering your clients and your employees back in 2009 or 2015 or even just a few months ago! Keep progressing the collaborative journey for your company.
