If the pandemic happened ten years ago, we might have relied more on old-school phone calls to get things done. But not today . . .
31% of people who are working from home say phone calls are NOT one of the ways they communicate with their boss and co-workers. Calls ARE still one of the top ways we communicate at work overall. But almost 1 in 3 people have moved on to other forms of communication. Here are the top five ways we’re talking to co-workers while working at home during the pandemic . . .
1. Emails. 84% send and receive them.
2. Phone calls, 69%.
3. Zoom, 49%.
4. Microsoft Teams, 32%.
5. Skype, 13%.
Slack got 12%. GoToMeeting, Facebook Messenger, FaceTime, and WhatsApp all ranked lower at less than 10%.
