How Companies Are Managing Remote Team Trends

  • CEO of LinkedIn Jeff Weiner suggests the importance of carving out “buffer time” when working from home. We agree, in fact, this as one of our key metrics — we measure if teams incorporate time blockers.
  • Cisco’s Webex has seen a record of 240,000 online signups within a 24-hour period, and now handles 14 billion meeting minutes per month. That’s more than double where they were before the crisis. Cisco CEO has focused more on privacy than ever before, and said in a recent blog regarding Webex Security that, “At Cisco, we believe data privacy is a fundamental human right.”
  • Verizon purchased Zoom’s rival videoconferencing company, BlueJeans. This acquisition shows they’re trying to compete in an industry that’s helping remote workers connect and thereby capitalizing on the working from home trend.
  • Many collaboration tools have been able to boost their growth during the pandemic. Notion has raised 50 million USD in March. We love and use Notion daily; have your roadmaps, Google Drive, notes, planning, and a knowledge base in one place.
