in Work

Put your camera on

It amazes me how many online meetings I go to where people don’t put their cameras on. Employee surveys show that people want to work from home, but then they don’t show up in the same way as they would at work. Having cameras on gives a richness to a meeting that you don’t get when you’re looking at a bunch of static avatars.

Like cyclists that jump red lights, I get the feeling that people who keep their cameras off give everyone else a bad name, and will be a factor in driving a push to returning to offices. I know that having cameras on isn’t possible 100% of the time, but it should be the default.
