Off-site Meeting Alternatives
Do you regularly travel between worksites or off-site for meetings? Did you know that you have a number of options that are cleaner, more sustainable and better for the environment?
Check out the list of options below to help you avoid unnecessary car trips to meetings!
- Audio-conferencing: Most phones and meeting rooms have audio-conferencing abilities that allow groups of people to call into one phone, and accomplish just as much, without extra travel.
Request an Audio Conference Account through IMITS
- Video conferencing: For times when you need face-to-face meetings, try video conferencing. Rooms must be booked in advance through the department or Agency that controls access to the room. The video conference must be booked separately.
The TeleHealth office can provide location details and site contact information, and will assist in coordinating and booking your video conference: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Avoid a single occupant vehicle with Shuttle Services between sites:
Did you know there is a HA-operated shuttle between several sites in the Lower Mainland? If you do need to travel to another site, consider using this free service.
