Maximising collaboration and productivity: The critical importance of Hybrid meeting room training

In 2020 we discovered the joys of working from home, the daily average, a two-hour commute turned into a 20 second leisurely stroll (if that) from bedroom to workspace, and many people found they took to remote working like duck to water. Remote meetings, on the other hand, were a cause of massive frustration. Even though we are three years into our new normal, remote and hybrid meeting skills are still weak in most businesses, causing issues with collaboration and meeting productivity. 

The importance of meeting room training cannot be overstated. Ensuring that your employees are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to collaborate effectively across different locations and devices is critical to your organisation’s success as a hybrid company.  

At Rapid Circle, we offer comprehensive training and support services to help companies make the most of their hybrid meeting rooms. Here’s four reasons why over 170 large organisations have completed this training with us:

When employees have a solid understanding of how to use hybrid meeting rooms, they can collaborate more effectively with colleagues in different locations. They can take advantage of the technology available to them to share ideas, work on projects together, and make decisions in real-time. This can lead to more effective collaboration and better outcomes. 


When you are in a hybrid meeting, it’s common for the online staff to be unengaged or feel excluded, resulting in frustrated employees across the board, in fact statistics suggest 91% of employees daydream in their meetings. Understanding the risks and maintaining engagement of participants that are both online and in meeting rooms are important skills for meeting facilitators.  Bringing these skills, tips and hints to the attention of your employees, will ensure meetings are well planned, considered inclusive and accessible.

Hybrid meeting room training can also lead to enhanced productivity. When employees are confident in their ability to use meeting room technology, they can get started quickly and avoid wasting time troubleshooting technical issues. They can also use the technology to streamline processes and workflows, making them more efficient and productive. 


With hybrid meeting room training, companies can ensure that all employees have a consistent user experience, regardless of their location or device. This can help to eliminate confusion and frustration and ensure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to collaboration and productivity. 


Another benefit of hybrid meeting room training is that it can help to improve security. Employees who understand how to use meeting room technology are less likely to make mistakes that could compromise company data or systems. They can also take advantage of security features built into the technology, such as multi-factor authentication and data encryption. 

Overall, hybrid meeting room training is essential for companies looking to maximise collaboration and productivity in a hybrid work environment. It can help to improve collaboration, enhance productivity, provide a consistent user experience, and improve security. By investing in training for your employees, you can ensure that they have the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a hybrid work environment.
