White Paper Summary

As we transitioned into 2021, remote working became the norm for many employees. As employers and their management teams worked hard to keep their employees connected and ensured that daily quotas were met, a new issue came to light: video conferencing fatigue. While the initial concern during the beginning of the COVID pandemic was ensuring that remote employees set up their home offices correctly with the furniture that they have on hand, new concerns surfaced as a result of the increased time employees spent viewing their screens – including computer monitors, laptops, tablets, and cell phones.

When employees work in an office setting, meetings are held in various conference rooms and employees are able to collaborate in person. They also have the ability to change conference rooms in between meetings, which provides a much-needed micro-break. In today’s environment, many employees are now stuck in back-to-back video conferencing meetings with no real breaks.

There are several ways employers can prevent video conferencing fatigue and help keep their employees productive and comfortable. Check out the full article for all of the details. To learn more about EK Health Services, visit ekhealth.com.
