Breakout Session

Working from Home, or Sleeping at the Office?

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring

In 2020, more employees than ever are working unexpectedly in new remote environments. Their productivity outside a traditional office is supported by innovations in videoconferencing. Unfortunately, research finds that people are more stressed out over videoconferencing than over other types of remote work—in part due to technological challenges and the awkwardness of still-developing social norms. This transition has also ushered in new levels of potential data collection and data security concerns that elevate the need to protect workers’ data privacy. At the same time, videoconferencing can help improve mental health by alleviating lockdown isolation, enabling better collaboration among teams, and increasing social connectivity with colleagues. In fact, employees who reported satisfaction with social connectivity with their colleagues were two to three times more likely to have improved their productivity during this time. As the pandemic continues to reshape office work, join us to discuss the opportunities and challenges of videoconferencing and how our work lives may have been changed for good.
