This shift has resulted in an increase in virtual meetings, offering professionals worldwide flexibility and accessibility. While the benefits of hybrid work are apparent, the drawbacks of virtual meetings, often characterised by a sense of disconnection and a lack of the personal touch, have become increasingly evident.
