From team huddles and client meetings to book club gatherings and team virtual drinks, we’ve probably done them all on Zoom or a similar platform during the pandemic.
Data on employee time usage reveal that when employees work remotely or in a hybrid fashion, they’re engaged in more formal and informal meetings. In fact Microsoft data confirms that we’ve seen a 148% increase in virtual meetings since the pandemic began (and it’s still rising).
In an attempt to recreate an in-office experience for remote and hybrid staff, employers tend to add more virtual touchpoints, which leads to digital overload, and 75% of HR leaders agree that this is putting their employees at risk for burnout. In fact, Gartner reported that since the pandemic began, there have been more check-ins (78%) between managers and workers and 84% more virtual meetings with teams.
In addition to that, the average time for meetings is 10 minutes longer, increasing from 35 to 45 minutes.
This has left many professionals experiencing the symptoms of ‘Zoom fatigue’- headaches, exhausted and even sore eyes.
Why? We’re not using video calls in a way that’s aligned to our neurobiology.
Let me help you put an end to Zoom fatigue, by joining this express virtual masterclass (which will ironically be delivered on Zoom).
