Copenhagen, Denmark – June 2, 2021 - Technology is at the heart of a new standard of professionalism demanded by hybrid working. Business leaders and employees alike want audio and video solutions to help maintain standards, while benefitting from a mix of remote and office-based working, according to the latest ‘Understanding Sound Experiences’ report from global audio brand EPOS. In the last year the lives of professionals have been transformed. While hybrid work is now a reality, professional end users today are losing 31 minutes a week to poor audio – an increase from 29 minutes a week in 2020 – despite growing familiarity with remote working situations. Suggesting that although hybrid working promises greater flexibility for both individuals and businesses, the changes needed to optimize the model remain a challenge and audio technology is a primary factor.
