51 Hellene Garcia Head of Commercials at Neat “How we work and where we work are being redefined. As we move forward into this new way of working, businesses will need to focus on how to promote the well-being of their employees, how to foster social interaction to drive engagement and enhance company culture, and how to ignite the creativity of their distributed teams. Neat’s simple and elegant devices for Teams continuously push the boundaries by providing advanced capabilities that keeps everyone equally seen and heard while allowing users to freely move around to support a more enhanced and focused hybrid working environment. With devices designed for all sizes and types of meeting spaces, including large and small traditional conference rooms, home offices, huddle spaces, hot desks and open spaces, Neat seamlessly connects people working from home with those in the office, providing an infinite canvas of possibilities for smoother collaboration and casual social interaction.” “As companies navigate the shift to hybrid working, Jabra is focused on delivering audio and video solutions with intelligent features that bring teams together to collaborate in new and innovative ways. With Jabra’s Microsoft Teams-certified devices, staff have the flexibility to work effectively in any environment. It’s now possible to enjoy seamless video conferencing with a 180-degree fieldof-view and live whiteboard streaming that captures content so that everyone can participate. Jabra’s professional headsets push sound quality and comfort even further, with active noise cancellation to minimise disruptions, and artificial intelligence and analytics to help identify issues. This increases productivity, wherever you are. For frontline workers who are in direct contact with customers or in industries such as retail and warehousing, handsfree, push-to-talk communication is essential. With BlueParrott headsets, one-touch access to Microsoft Teams Walkie Talkie delivers instant and clear communication at the touch of a button, connecting employees across distributed teams.” Nigel Dunn Managing Director of EMEA North at Jabra
