🆕 Remote employees aren’t becoming less engaged and now we’ve got the data to back this up. According to a recent HRB quoted survey, it turns out that employees have more short, one-on-one meetings compared to 2020, and those meetings are increasingly spontaneous (meaning they weren’t set up in advance on the calendar). While there are limitations to this data, it does suggest that employees are finding new ways to connect with each other — and that there are steps organisations can take to encourage them to continue to do so.
📲 Methodology: they gathered metadata from all Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Webex meetings (involving webcams on and/or off) from 10 large global organisations (seven of which are Fortune 500 firms) spanning a variety of fields, including technology, health care, energy, and financial services. Specifically, we compared six-week snapshots of raw meeting counts from April through mid-May in 2020 following the Covid-19 lockdowns, and the same set of six weeks in 2021 and 2022.
Main useful findings:
✅ Remote meetings have become more frequent (increase of 60% than 2020)
✅ Remote meetings have become shorter by 25% (from an average of 43 minutes per meeting in 2020 to 33 minutes in 2022)
✅ Remote meetings have become more spontaneous – 66% of one-on-one meetings were unscheduled.
