8 Dec 2020 By Advertising feature

HR plays a pivotal role in planning events like company kick-offs and town halls, and heading into 2021, uncertainty remains about live events. Fortunately virtual events drive engagement, build morale and offer valuable metrics, and BlueJeans by Verizon is here to help

Whether you’re supporting other teams’ events or running your own, as an HR professional you play a pivotal role. Organising, planning, and executing live events effectively is critical while supporting a secure, easy-to-join experience for attendees.

As we head into 2021, there’s still uncertainty as on-site events are scheduled or cancelled.

Regardless of your event type – be it sales kick-off meetings, recruitment drives, town halls, or graduation ceremonies – you’re no doubt keen to find ways for your teams to meet up, recharge, and make a fresh start in 2021. You know the importance of boosting morale and engaging and informing colleagues wherever they may be working with clear, motivating messages.

Fortunately, virtual events technology has made major strides from the old-school webinar. Today’s dynamic virtual meetings and events can help your company start 2021 strong by:

  • Building unity and providing shared experiences to people working remotely, some of whom feel isolated. The importance of feeling ‘in it together’ with managers and executives cannot be underestimated.
  • Giving everyone ‘air time’ to interact and provide feedback. While in-person events are popular with extroverts, introverts feel empowered by virtual events that let them post questions, ideas, and feedback in chat windows. Polling lets people give immediate feedback on, for example, new policies under consideration.
  • Offering immersive, accessible, multimedia experiences at home. Today’s technology means the days of poor audio-visual quality and one-sided “death by PowerPoint” formats are over. Also, those with accessibility requirements can adjust settings for optimal experience.
  • Providing valuable metrics on engagement levels like event attendance numbers, time spent in events, chat logs and satisfaction ratings.

We know that running virtual events can feel daunting at first, so BlueJeans by Verizon is here to help. Take a free trial today and see how easy it is.
