Zoom Video Communications, Inc. on Thursday announced Zoom for Home, a new category of software experiences and hardware devices to support remote work use cases. At a time when employers are grappling with what the new normal of work will look like, Zoom for Home elevates employee experiences to connect remotely and be productive, the company said in a statement.
The future of knowledge work will be a hybrid of virtual and in-person experience. In a recent study by IBM, 81% of respondents—up from 75% in April—indicated they want to continue working remotely at least some of the time. More than half—61%—would like this to become their primary way of working. Major corporations around the globe have already indicated that they do not foresee a return to pre-COVID ways of working. Additionally, according to a recent study by Morning Consult, almost half of adults who are able to work remotely believe that virtual meetings are at least as effective as in-person meetings. Zoom for Home meets the needs of the present shelter-in-place and the new normal of hybrid workforces, the company said.
