77% of Remote Workers Feel Their Digital Fatigue Has Worsened Since The Pandemic

Boston, MA, June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Livestorm, the first video engagement platform that enables people to manage their professional video events, today announced recent survey findings on the impact of remote work and digital fatigue. With over 25% of US-based employees still working from home, virtual meetings remain the prominent method of communication. Livestorm surveyed 1,000 US-based employees in order to take a deeper look at how employees are feeling nearly two years since the beginning of the pandemic and how companies can help moving forward.

Key findings revealed:

  • Impact of digital fatigue: Of the 49% of respondents who responded they do experience digital fatigue, 77% of them said their digital fatigue has worsened since the beginning of the pandemic.

  • Number of meetings is the biggest factor: When asked what fatigues employees most when working from home, the number of daily meetings was cited the most.

  • Improving employee satisfaction: 50.81% of respondents said employers can offer more flexible work hours to reduce digital fatigue.

  • Increasing engagement: 47% of respondents said incorporating more interactive elements such as polls and live questions would make video meetings more engaging.

  • A contradiction: Of the 49% of respondents who responded they do experience digital fatigue, 29% of them feel they are more engaged or able to pay attention during remote meetings.

“It is essential for companies that want to create great work environments to understand the challenges that remote work can have on employees,” said Gilles Bertaux, co-founder and CEO of Livestorm. “I am making it my mission to create solutions that workplaces can implement in order to increase participation and encourage engagement in a virtual environment. I look forward to continuing to develop innovative features at Livestorm that empower the remote and hybrid work experience for all.”

Understanding the importance of engagement in a remote environment, Livestorm has released a suite of features to combat digital fatigue such as live polls, chats and Q&A opportunities. Most recently, Livestorm released the first-ever Video Engagement Score™ (VES), which is a new way to evaluate the success of online events based on a new scoring system. The easy-to-use index is designed to be accessible from all video conferencing platforms.
