Because most of us are living in a Zoomful world, I thought people might find this interesting; Axios reports…
Stunning stat: 92% of executives at medium to large firms think workers who turn cameras off during meetings don’t have long-term futures at the company, according to a new survey from Vyopta, a software company.
Why it matters: The data adds grist to the worry that hybrid and remote employees have expressed about the post-pandemic world — that those who choose to work from home some, most or all of the time will be out-of-sight, out-of-mind for bosses.

If it’s a quick update on an ongoing project, everybody goes dark. Especially if it’s before 9 a.m.
It’s worth noting that sometimes people turn off the camera because they don’t have broadband for the full experience; just another reason we need ubiquitous broadband. And for what it’s worth, I like to walk and take Zoom calls – unless I’m running or presenting at the meeting. It means I don’t take great notes but I do pay better attention!
