Virtual fatigue 

The average UC user spends more time on calls than ever. Statistics show annual Zoom meeting minutes increased by 3,300 percent in 2020-21 and there was a 645 percent increase in active MS Teams users within the same time frame. Research also found a person’s credibility in virtual calls relies on the audio quality; the poorer the quality, the less credible the individual is.

If this is done continuously, energy and alertness are drained, which impacts wellbeing and productivity. Getting the online experience right is therefore extremely important to ensuring employees’ do not suffer from virtual fatigue.
