Citi and Other Small Businesses Go Video Call-Free on Fridays

One major side effect that has come with WFH has been work fatigue. Sitting at home alone, looking at a blue light screen for hours drains many and takes any real motivation out of their work day.

The bank has listened to its employees’ struggle with work and life balance due to constant online work and interactions, planning to add employee days off in May on top of its video-free days.
