Virtual working has harmed workplace social etiquette with at least four in 10 employees having either worn pyjamas or failed to put on trousers at least once while attending virtual meetings in the past 12 months, according to a new survey.

The survey of 2,027 UK and US-based remote workers found wearing pyjamas (30%), not wearing trousers (11%), shopping online (23%), playing computer games (15%), or exercising (12%) were activities undertaken by employees during online meetings.
