Business as usual, with some unusual (and fun) additions
Riley’s virtual office offered their employees a remote working experience that preserved real-world office culture, maintained personal relationships, and kept the casual interactions that make working in a team so rewarding. Colleagues were able to chat through voice or text, interact with each other’s avatars and collaborate on joint projects through presentation tools, sticky notes, and big screen displays – all within a natural office setting.
Branded spaces, personal offices, breakout rooms and, boardrooms meant consultants could join meetings, have private discussions, or enjoy some quiet time to concentrate on their work. In many ways, the working experience for employees has been very much like before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, but without having to spend time commuting. At the same time, the firm’s wider carbon footprint was reduced, too.
