Distance and digitization of communications can pose a challenge to the relationships upon which great work relies. Emails can be misinterpreted. Virtual meetings can feel stressful or strange. The blurring of private home life and public work life can impact employee well-being. Zello offers a way to empower every team member, allowing them to take ownership of their workload and their availability to connect. Zello uses a push-to-talk experience, modeled on walkie talkies, that feels familiar and natural to now-virtual teams who may not be used to working from home – rather than setting up a formal meeting or waiting for someone to respond to a written (or text) message.
