The democratization of video has arrived at Young & Associates. While we’ve been operating in a virtual environment for nearly 10 years, it has only been in the past year that we’ve really started to leverage the power of internal video. Clients are requesting calls via Skype and we are having staff meetings via Google Hangout. Not to mention we have a client in the business. Every time we do a video call I am reminded how valuable “face-time” is to a working relationship.
As co-location isn’t always possible in professional collaborations, technology (thankfully) has helped break down location barriers and having a video-based face-to-face meeting really takes the teamwork up a notch. Engaging with your peers, clients or vendors verbally and visually helps shorten the getting to know you curve. Ask us about it – we’d love to meet you face-to-face.
