Recent statistics have revealed that productivity has taken a hit following the move to remote working due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, many employees have stated that productivity has in fact increased
from the light inside an office or at home, to distractions such as regular daily meetings and phone calls –
maintaining productivity is no easy feat.
During the current coronavirus crisis, productivity has also been greatly impacted by both positive and negative ways.
While many employees have cited,
being more productive from the comfort of their own home and putting in more hours throughout the working day,
productivity has taken a beating due to the constant levels of communication, and loneliness working from home can bring.
For example, new research from LinkedIn’s Glint has revealed that burnout actually doubled from March (2.7%) to April (5.4%) 2020,
meaning employers will need to urgently tackle the issue before it threatens productivity levels even further.
The research went on to identify that employees were struggling to balance their personal and professional lives,
indicating that many may be suffering from a productivity slump.
