#1. The pandemic workday is 48 minutes longer and has more (albeit shorter) meetings
Have you been working these past months remotely and feel your workday has gradually grown longer? It may well be more than just a feeling! According to an extensive study by the US National Bureau of Economic Research, it turns out employees work on average 48 minutes per day more than before the coronavirus pandemic. Based on the meta-data of more than 3 million people from North America, Europe, and the Middle East, the working paper also finds that the number of meetings per person has increased by 12.9%, but the length of those has shortened by a fifth.
