The Meeting Owl, Your New Conference Room Pet

Working from anywhere is the newest office trend, and honestly, some are even trying to make it a “right.” In some industries, it is more common than others, but we are starting to see more companies get on board with the movement. In a recent study, it was found that 66% of companies allow their employees to work remotely. Additionally, there are a growing number of businesses with multiple office locations? Many times, we struggle to connect with a productive meeting as our employees are all in different places. Travel is expensive and can sometimes be a waste of time to make sure everyone is in one location just for a meeting.

Instead, we put in our hours at the office and also check email and many other applications when we should be decompressing at home or on vacation. A recent study found that 2/3 of full-time employees admit to experiencing burnout at work. This is no surprise because we can’t escape work even when we are trying! That is why we are exploring the topic of using technology to manage technology. This might sound counterintuitive but bear with us for a quick read.
