The Benefits Of Connecting Remote Businesses Through Video Conferencing
My name is Tim and I am an IT architect from California, coming from an enterprise environment. Working at Clevertech has been a refreshing experience and I've been given the opportunity to make some positive adjustments while transitioning to a remote-first company.
In my not so distant past, team calls were difficult and unproductive – they were audio only, and some percentage of those were "coffee talks" or "townhalls" (read "no active participation necessary"). Clevertech is remote-first and video-first. This operating style creates the most efficient, productive and connected environment for our geographically dispersed teams.
I will admit, it did take a week or so to get used to being on camera: to not feel as though you were always being watched, and to discover it's ok to scratch your nose, take a drink of coffee or in general, be human. The short adjustment period is well beyond worth it: with more productive and comfortable meetings, we have that invaluable extra 5 minutes to share what is going on in our personal lives and get to know each other as a team.
At the root, Clevertech's use of video meetings shows our emphasis on a strong, intertwined team. The video meeting provides a supportive and connected environment, allowing our core philosophy of freedom, mastery and craft to flourish. We are all able to feel like we are sitting in the same office together but are able to be working anywhere in the world that has WiFi.
