Researchers found that video conferencing makes workers less effective at building relationships. They also found two important ways employees can overcome the downside of video meetings. Almost 60% of U.S. workers said they were still telecommuting part-time or full time in September. About two-thirds of workers say they’d like to continue working remotely at least sometime after the pandemic ends, the researchers say. The findings suggest companies and workers could offset some downsides of remote work, which could pay dividends in the post-pandemic world. The researchers conducted the research with the help of Ye Zhang, who just received her doctorate from Peking University.
