Jabra’s Research Reveal Impact of Technology in Hybrid Meetings
Jabra conducted research at the LSE Behavioural Lab, titled ‘Meeting Great Expectations: Behavior, Emotion, and Trust,’ to explore the dynamics of meetings and technology’s impact. The study found that face-to-face collaboration leads to higher engagement (56%), and in hybrid meetings, participants using optimized professional meeting-room headsets and video cameras experienced an 84% increase in remote participant engagement. The debate on office return versus remote work autonomy unfolded from mid-2021 to mid-2023. The research emphasized the importance of trust in remote interactions, with participants reporting increased trust (16%) and clarity (27%) when using professional technology.
While technology played a significant role, cultural differences were observed, with European knowledge workers engaging more in verbal dialogue, while Asian counterparts showed higher attention levels. The study underscores the importance of professional technology and a diverse, behaviorally inclusive approach for effective collaboration in the future of hybrid meetings. Jabra and LSE aim to promote meaningful human interaction in meetings and meeting equity for employee development and satisfaction.
