ODU Researchers: How to Avoid Zoom Fatigue


By Sydney Lake, Virginia Business

Although pandemic workdays for many have been filled with back-to-back Zoom meetings, a sense of belonging has dwindled, according to research published by Old Dominion University and Ohio State University researchers.

“Feeling like you belong with the group is so tremendously important on a videoconference, and from our results, higher group identity was related to less fatigue after a meeting — whereas having your camera on or looking at yourself more often was not,” Emily D. Campion, ODU Strome College of Business assistant professor of management, said in a statement.

To create a sense of belonging, researchers suggest making time for non-work chats and small-group discussions. They also suggest using the mute function when the participant isn’t speaking.
