Almost 95% of South African employees surveyed in the latest Cisco Global Hybrid Work Study want to work either in a hybrid or fully remote work way.

To assist organisations in facilitating such an enabling environment, Cisco has announced the Webex Room Bar and Cisco Desk Camera 1080p solutions as well as introduced new enhancements to Webex software.

“Employees are subject to spending long hours in front of their computers and with that, comes various downsides. Mental health has become a critical issue in South Africa. If we can create technologies that make the experience of hybrid work less stressful, we need to invest fully in this,” said Conrad Steyn, CTO, Cisco South Africa. “The Cisco Global Hybrid Work Study has highlighted how more than 86% of South African respondents believe that hybrid and remote work have improved all aspects of their wellbeing. Technology plays a critical role in how teams communicate in this environment. And when it comes to collaboration, the Cisco and Webex solutions work in the exact ways you do, wherever and however you work.”

At home, at the office, or on-the-go, each workspace brings with it a unique set of challenges. In the study, background noise, poor sound, and video quality are some of the most significant video meeting frustrations leading to fatigue.
