These days most workers spend a good part of their workday conducting business via video conferencing, and it sure sounds like a lot of them have had enough.
A new Robert Half survey finds:
- 76% of workers participate in virtual meetings, with those people spending 30% of their workdays virtually connecting with colleagues and contacts.
- 38% of those workers say they’ve experienced video call fatigue since the pandemic began.
- More women then men are tired of video conferencing (47% vs. 32%)
- After eight months of video conferencing, 26% say the practicality and novelty has worn off.
- Almost a quarter describe virtual meetings as inefficient and exhausting, and admit they’d prefer to stay connected in other ways like email or phone.
- As for the biggest video call pet peeves, they include:
- Technical issues (28%)
- People talking over each other (19%)
