“Hey, can we jump on a Zoom call?” “What’s the meeting password?” “Okay, it looks like we’re all here, but where’s Dave?” “Jim, could you please mute, all we can hear is your dog barking.” “Stacey, I think you’re frozen. Maybe jump on audio only?”
Zoom was a great tool to get everyone operating quickly when the COVID-19 pandemic suddenly altered our everyday lives. But, now 6 months later, the Zoom fatigue is beginning to set in.
Can you imagine looking at this busy screen all day?
Human interaction is an innate requirement in most human brains. Having a relationship with our colleagues is half the excitement of going into work every day.
If the last six months have proven anything, we crave one another (albeit in managed doses).
I mean, who else are we going to talk with about our favourite shows, new restaurants, and most importantly, your work.
It’s time to get your team together again, in a team meeting space rented by the day.

However, going back, and going back safely are two different things.
Going back to your traditional meeting space, which has been sitting vacant since mid-March, may not be the best approach to slowly re-integrating your staff back into in-person meetings.
So, how can you ensure that they are returning to a safe environment? Reserve an off-site team meeting space.
At The Rostie Group, we have the perfect team meeting spaces, which are equipped with state of the art technology, whiteboards, socially distanced workspaces and private breakout rooms.
With direct access to Union Station via the PATH network, our 20 Bay St location makes it easy for you and your guests to arrive at your meeting room without ever stepping outdoors. Daily parking is also available for those choosing not to take public transit or who are coming from further areas in the GTA.
But, not to worry if a team member can’t make it in, these spaces are fully equipped with Video Meeting capabilities that support Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, Skype, GoToMeeting and all other online platforms.
With COVID-19 protocols such as daily disinfecting, 2-meter distance between attendees, reduced room capacities, optimized HVAC, and readily available disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers, we’ve put ourselves at the forefront for the safe practice of off-site meetings.
It’s time to ditch the meeting room codes and bad internet connections and meet in person.
For more information about our meeting and training rooms, as well as securing your next space, feel free to call 416-214-1840 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
