Working in a remote office I have seen the good and the bad of attending webinars. The good parts being that of course it is much greener and easier to attend than having to drive and fly somewhere. But sometimes it is hard to hear or be heard and our video isn’t always the best. Overall I would say that the good outweighs the bad. Obviously for a company of our size it doesn’t make sense to have everyone travel to 1 location.
To take costs down one step further, as well as make our meetings even greener, we only give the meeting link and the phone numbers to managers instead of every employee. This means we are using a lot less phone lines and computers to have everyone attend the meeting. I actually prefer this way because everyone in their own offices gets together to view the meeting in Toronto on their projectors so its like we are all coming together for our own meetings.
