Are you feeling swamped with work, buried under a mountain of emails, notifications, and meetings?

You're not alone. With the constant barrage of workplace demands, it's becoming increasingly challenging for employees to stay on top of it all. In fact, a whopping 68% of employees admit they struggle to find uninterrupted focus time during their workday, leading to significant costs for their organizations. And the demand for our time is only growing, with a staggering 252% increase in weekly meeting hours since February 2020.

But here's the good news: Microsoft Teams Premium is a smart investment that has revolutionized the way countless organizations work. Since its launch nine months ago, it has offered advanced collaboration tools that have reduced the burden of time-consuming tasks and allowed employees to focus on high-value work.

Let's break it down into some key points:

Save Time and Money with Teams Premium: A study by Forrester Consulting found that using AI-powered intelligent recap in Teams Premium allowed organizations to save 50 to 90% of the time spent catching up on missed meetings. You'll also experience time savings with meeting templates, enhanced security, and reduced software license costs. This adds up to a projected return on investment of 108 to 360% over three years. It's a win-win for organizations.

Teams Premium: The Smart Place to Work:

Teams Premium combines intelligent productivity, engaging experiences, and advanced protection. It's designed to help employees not just keep up but thrive in the new world of collaboration. Make meetings more productive with intelligent recaps that use AI to create chapters and topics, making it a breeze to navigate meeting recordings.

Language Support and Live Translation:

Microsoft is expanding intelligent recap language support to include Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, and Spanish. This means you can conduct meetings in your preferred language and get AI-generated notes and tasks in that language too. For global teamwork, Teams Premium users can also enjoy live translated meeting captions and transcripts.

Enhanced Meeting Engagement:

Microsoft is helping meeting organizers understand attendee interaction better. New engagement analytics provide insights into reactions, raised hands, cameras turned on, chats, and unmutes during and after meetings. This understanding is crucial for improving meeting experiences.

Richer Webinar Experiences:

Microsoft is introducing new webinar capabilities, making it easier to entice attendees to register and join your webinars. Customizable email communications allow you to tailor your message and brand to each event. Plus, you can use engagement analytics to assess content performance and understand overall event engagement.

With Microsoft Teams Premium, you're not just working; you're working smarter and more efficiently. Boost your productivity and engagement today!


Facilitate Tailored Meeting Experiences for Your Organization

The latest enhancements in Teams Premium provide administrators with the means to embed organizational norms into collaborative interactions. This empowers administrators to enhance both privacy and uniformity within the organization.

Admins can now enforce automatic background blur in meetings where a user hasn't selected a background or blur preference. This policy restricts users from disabling the blur effect and limits their background choices to approved options, ensuring a more confidential and professional atmosphere during team meetings.

For those crucial, high-profile engagements where connection quality is paramount, administrators can now proactively monitor meeting quality to swiftly identify and rectify audio, video, and app-sharing issues as they arise. This monitoring relies on real-time meeting quality data available in the Teams Admin Center, where admins can establish a set of criteria for tracking vital metrics and receiving real-time alerts.
