Audio and video conferencing are fantastic technological advancements that makes it possible to meet with colleagues from across the globe without having to leave home. While these methods of collaboration are usually fairly easy to use (especially with training from CCS Midwest!), good planning is the key to making any audio or video conferencing session a success. Follow this checklist to make sure you're ready before connecting with colleagues and clients.
An increasing number of workers are choosing to be remote employees as employers look to cut costs and hire top talent regardless of geographical location.

Companies can enhance the satisfaction of remote employees by using video conferencing and other high tech tools to promote collaboration and connectivity.
