Potential Metaverse Applications for Remote Teams

In the early days of quarantine, offices scrambled to keep their communications fluid and effective. However, the kinks and pitfalls of remote work are smoothing over as companies continue to adapt. 

Team communication platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Slack have become increasingly intuitive, and new hires are expected to pick them up as they go. 

The Metaverse in the Context of Remote Work

The question now is how remote work will transcend physical distance and become increasingly integrated? How will social engagement and interaction, the main component lacking in remote work, advance and improve? 

Mark Zuckerberg’s 2021 Metaverse presentation attempts to answer these problems with virtual reality applications. 

Zuckerberg posits that working inside virtual workspaces will become the norm for business. 

A 2022 Global Culture Study by O.C. Tanner Institute found that people excel when working remotely on creative tasks but fall short when trying to complete work that requires better integration and communication. 

While live office employees may connect over a shared lunch or sharing an office space, remote companies look to the Metaverse to fill in socialization gaps. 

As a result, we will likely see Metaverse’s socialization for remote offices continue to blossom.
