On ZOOM Fatigue!


By: Staff reporters

“Lately, Zoom meetings have been hitting a nerve with CEOs”.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says there’s no vital “creative combustion” happening in virtual settings. American Airlines CEO Doug Parker finds Zoom meetings awful.

And Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls them transactional, where “30 minutes into your first video meeting in the morning … you’re fatigued.

“What we as human beings need, want, seek … is human contact,” Nadella says.

Now members of the C-suite have gone full boomerang on Zoom meetings. After finding them awesome and productive at first, they’re now questioning how much they really achieve and are suggesting they lead to a sterile work culture lacking in imagination.

Dimon is particularly worried about how working from home has affected JPMorgan’s younger employees. He told analysts that productivity had dipped, especially on Mondays and Fridays. Dimon says bringing people back to the office is paramount to fostering creativity.


“The bloom is clearly off this rose.”
