Video Engagement Platform Livestorm Reveals the Impact of Remote Work on Fatigue Through New Survey Findings

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

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.
