Two-Thirds Of Employees Cite Disappearing Workplace Socializing As Consequences Of COVID-19

Workers are spending less time socializing with their colleagues. Still, businesses are introducing virtual events as more employees work remotely, according to Clutch’s new data, a B2B ratings, and reviews firm. While enduring the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are likely to keep managers available to employees and invest more heavily in communication technology. A poll of U.S. workers reveals:

  • 63% say they spend less time socializing with their colleagues – both in-person and virtually – since COVID-19 was declared a pandemic
  • 26% say their company has provided its employees greater access to communication technology in the past 30 days
  • 35% report their company has NOT hosted a virtual social event since remote work due to the pandemic
  • 13% say their office is holding happy hours
  • 9% report their office is hosting activities and games
  • 5% report virtual meals held
  • 19% report professional development sessions have happened
  • 81% say their manager is as available or more available since the start of remote work
  • Only 19% of employees report that their manager is less accessible because of remote work
