Technology has been helping us get through one of the most challenging times in recent history. But despite the awesome power of modern collaboration technology, such as Webex by Cisco, it’s still all about the humans at the epicenter.
There’s a very interesting situation arising from collaboration and communication technology enabling us to not just maintain business continuity, but actually push far-reaching innovations to new levels. Technology has made it possible for individuals, teams, and organizations to continue working…possibly more than we were before the pandemic now that the lines that once clearly divided home and office have significantly blurred. With technology empowering us to work from home, the office, and in between (mixed mode) it’s more important than ever that we have physical health, mental wellness, and empathy comprehensively baked into our daily operations and systems.
Thrive Global’s Founder & CEO Arianna Huffington sat down with our SVP & GM, Security and Collaboration Division Jeetu Patel as well as our EVP and Chief People, Policy & Purpose Officer Francine Katsoudas. In this video clip, she talks about Cisco and Thrive’s partnership geared toward making hybrid-work work better. “We all agree hybrid work is here to say,” said Arianna.
Arianna also shared, “In fact, Cisco released a great study showing that, while in the past only 8% of meetings included people not physically in the meeting, that number is going to increase to 98% in our post-pandemic world. During that time, we believe it’s imperative to change the energy of meetings, and to reduce the stress of back-to-back meetings by bringing to all Webex users what Thrive has built—Thrive Reset. Thrive Reset is based on the science that shows it takes 60 to 90 seconds to course-correct from stress. And while stress is unavoidable during the day, cumulative stress is avoidable.”
