Geographically dispersed employees are increasingly common in today’s workplaces. Perhaps you have offices in multiple locations or you have a group of telecommuters that you manage. There are many different challenges that come with supervising employees in multiple locations and time zones, one of the most prominent of them being communication.   At one point in time, telephone conferencing was the preferred method of communication for people in two or more locations. By pressing just a few buttons, team members could connect and converse across multiple locations. While audio conferencing is convenient and cost-effective, it also has some flaws—namely a lack of visual aids that make it easier to focus on the conversation.

Our world has become increasingly technology-driven, but the power of meetings cannot be denied, even in the digital age.
