Introducing Webex's Hybrid Work Outcomes!

What would you do if another hour was added to your day? With Webex's built-in #HybridWork solutions, cut down on unnecessary calls and spend time getting the important things done.

Whether it's through asynchronous messaging, taking calls from home or the office, or by recording a video to be watched later, maximize your workday potential.

Webex doesn't want you to spend more time in meetings. Use solutions like Miro and Slido to work productively in calls so that you get your day back.

Love this #ProTip and I have been personally using it myself for a few months.  The first one I heard about this from was the one and only Chris Pardini who shared this tip on LinkedIn awhile back.  2003 MySpace flashback!

Great idea!  Thanks for sharing.

Yes! @RedNectar one of my FAVORITE Webex messaging use cases is being able to start a space with myself. Check out a quick tutorial (by me) and learn how I use MySpaces (wink)! Thank you for sharing your love of Webex with the Community.

OK, probably one of the best ideas that I've heard all year.  So simple, yet so much better than any of the hacks that I've come up with on my own.  Thanks!

As part of a global and traveling team, I love the custom status feature where I can proactively advise my current work timezone. Also have been making a lot of use to provide updates through short videos in vidcast.

#HYBRIDWORKROCKS #ILOVEWEBEX

With Webex, anything I do in an "office", work, teach, meet, rinse and repeat, can be done anywhere!  I've been a remote worker for many years now.  I always start my day with the mobile Webex App.  (I do make coffee first) I check my calendar, my messages, then going on the day.  It doesn't matter where I am at, I can always access "work". 

I love the custom status - and I love that I can use emojis in it!  Even better, being I am the queen of "forgetting to update my custom status" I can decide how long my custom status should show.  I am sure I am not the only one that has had "Out to Lunch" on their status for 12 days 4 hours and 37 minutes???

I can totally relate to your experience and attribute 100% of my success as a mom, wife and employee to hybrid work. 

Transitioning back to my home office is a breeze after returning from carpool line and staying productive while in the car, at the soccer field or in the waiting room at a doctors office is a cinch... hopefully that last one doesn't happen too frequently!

Work/life balance is definitely attainable and I've found it to be super simple with Webex!

Thanks for these, @eschlach! The #HybridWork continues to be an on-going process of figuring out what works, how to make our lives easier and more productive, and staying safe in the practices we have built to make Cisco and Webex more fun.

The biggest additions like Slido and Miro allow for a more utility-focused approach, allowing more options to get work done, engage in ways that make life at work easier, and continue that balance that we so definitely need.

Thanks for these tips, @eschlach! When I first switched from a role in a hybrid organization (3 days in the office, 2 at home) to fully remote, I was feeling a little intimidated and worried that I wouldn't be able to form strong connections with my coworkers. However, within my first week, I learned that messaging in Webex can be so powerful - whether I want to say a quick 'hello!' or to get some feedback to finish up a project. I rarely need to hold meetings these days and instead, I can complete my work much more efficiently through messaging or Vidcast. And when I do need to meet, having the apps & integrations within Webex meetings helps keeps us productive, but better yet, the meetings are fun!

As a virtual trainer for our partners, I use a Webex space for each of my classes to have an easy way to share content that students can reference later. They can also ask questions during class and outside of class. It allows them to collaborate easily to share their own experiences just as they would in an in-person classroom. 

Also using the DND feature and custom statuses allows my co-workers to know I'm in a class and cannot immediately respond. It also allows me to set up time to focus when I'm not teaching. 

Additionally, I am part of several fun Webex spaces with various coworkers that help me feel more connected and break up the workday since I am 100% remote!

Hi @eschlach!

I've been a hybrid working for over a decade - and the notion of work/ life harmony may seem like a pipe dream - but it's possible! I make sure my calendar is blocked for heads down project time, personal time, and make sure I'm not max'ing out on meetings each day.

The customized status lets me communicate if I'm in my Sacred Mornings, Creative Project Time, Midday Mental Siesta, or other important times that I will not be giving a rapid reply.

I like asking "does this have to be a meeting?" So much can be done in a space. And so much prep can be done before the meeting. We use Sharepoint links and let others edit/ comment in real time and the document is always up to date and always a click away.  Everyone can review the presentation before the meeting, make comments and be ready to discuss it in the meeting and make decisions. We can also make sure all the right people are in the meeting. 

I can't wait to hear from everyone else!
