With escalating COVID-19 concerns, employers are enforcing work-from-home policies and restricting travel to certain countries in an effort to keep their workforce from risk and exposure. It makes sense! With these new safety precautions, we’re seeing a decline in meetings of all sizes. When times are uncertain, communication is more important than ever, so here are a few ways you can maintain quality connections using video.
1. Live Webcasts and Streaming
Late last month, the World Health Organization (WHO) hosted a live Q&A session using Periscope on Twitter #COVID19 to over 50,000 viewers – allowing people to ask questions using #AskWHO. This is a wonderful example of using live streaming to answer questions in real-time and address concerns faster. Information that you would normally share at a conference or live event can be received online. Consider using Facebook Live or Periscope to reach a wide audience. These are easy and quick tools to use yourselves, but if you’re thinking large-scale or have specific needs, consider hiring a production company to make sure your main priority is always your message and not technical difficulties.
