How We Used Async Communication to Adapt to Global Change
by Najette Fellache
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the business world in terms of the work environment, meetings, and service provision. Since the start of the health crisis, the world has moved towards the online space. The Weet team was putting in place strategies to adapt to global change. As the magnitude of the pandemic became more evident, we needed to up our game.
There was a significant change in the work environment, moving towards working remotely. This transition was expected to be a great challenge, but the Weet team quickly adapted. At Weet, we moved with speed to implement asynchronous communication. This type of meeting was the perfect way to move toward working remotely.
Weet’s asynchronous capabilities were bundled with tremendous abilities exceeding expectations. The introduction of the Weet video moved an inch closer to achieve the ideal asynchronous meeting. The start of asynchronous meetings brought so much convenience to partners globally. Weet solved the biggest challenge of all in terms of the difference in time zones. Using Weet for async communication, we successfully coordinated schedules without the need to be live.
Asynchronous meetings work better as opposed to all-hands meetings. The screencasting tool helps moderators broadcast information as opposed to text. Members were at a great advantage of leaving video replies.
As the pandemic continues across the world, Zoom virtual meetings have become the only option. Most businesses and companies implemented a work from home policy. Travel restrictions were also made; hence physical meetings were no longer an option. Weet moved quickly in launching online resources with asynchronous video.
