JO0001: Hybrid working

To help teams of workers who adopt a balance of working from home and the workplace (hybrid workers), remote platform tools could have 'passer-by' screens, ‘corridor’ screens and ‘tea room’ screens etc., With camera's appropriately situated around certain areas within the workplace people can be picked up by these cameras for homeworkers to opt in', so that they can be seen in these areas too. This enables people at the workplace and homeworkers to pass by and wave to each other, say hello or have a brief conversation in passing, just as if both were in an open office. There are European cities that have live ‘portals’ such that pedestrians passing can interact with one another. So, this technology is already there.
