Many companies and Human Resources executives would prefer video conferencing over email as their top method of business communication. This is because it removes the issue of distance and betters communication and productivity between teams whether they are across the country or across the globe.
Video conferencing is the method of communication by a set of telecommunication technologies which permit two or more locations to communicate by simultaneous two-way video and audio transmissions.
