New study reveals that working from home is giving many British workers ‘video call fatigue’

UK workers have lost about 862 million hours of productivity since the end of March when the country went into lock-down. It has been reported that the productivity is lost due to ‘video call fatigue’.

It has been reported that workers spend 47 minutes preparing themselves both physically and mentally for video calls with colleagues. Once the call is over, it apparently takes workers 18 minutes on average to get back into ‘work mode’.

The study also found that the rise in virtual meetings has taken significant toll on workers physical and mental well-being, with 54% reporting insomnia, headaches, eye strain, anxiety and low moods because of the video call technology.

This is causing discomfort to workers and stops work being carried out as effectively as it could be.
