Working from home makes clear the advantages of alternatives to in-person meetings.
“If the message can be clearly communicated in an email, it’s not necessary to have a meeting,” says Thomas Mitchell, CEO of language provider service Global Intermix.
” Just as working from home allows you to make your workspace fit your needs, you can do the same with your environment.
“You are also happier working from home, generally, for the simple fact that you’re in your own space and your own controlled environment,” says Nick Hennen, senior media relations manager for mobile tools company Cheetah Mobile.
“If someone wants to have a meeting with me, I often suggest a video call. It’s more personal and less time-consuming than an email, but also doesn’t require the other person to be present in that exact moment, so you are able to communicate your thought or idea effectively and on your own time.
