How the Coronavirus Has Affected Collaboration Overload

For most (72%), the coronavirus pandemic marks the first time they’ve worked from home on a full-time basis. That’s according to data i4cp collected April 23-27, 2020 from 233 HR leaders at organizations that employ at least 1,000 people.

Yet, while most of these HR leaders (67%) indicate they are collaborating with colleagues at least as much now as they did pre-crisis, it appears as though most employers are also unaware of the collaborative demands being placed on those working from home during this pandemic.

The good news is that other research from i4cp on workforce well-being and collaboration provide practical insights into ways to effectively avoid and/or alleviate such collaborative overload, which includes techniques related to meetings management, email etiquette, and blocking time for self-reflection/meditation.
