With the abrupt shift from in-person to remote and hybrid work in the last two years, organizations used video communication software to adapt quickly and make collaboration seamless for distributed teams. Such tools have both audio and video capabilities, allowing employees to choose whether to turn their video on or off during virtual meetings. This prompts the question, “Does every business call these days have to be a video call — and if not, when’s the best time to go ‘video on’?”
A study commissioned by Zoom and conducted by research firm Morning Consult found that going “video on” when you connect virtually has exceptional benefits for you, your team, and your business. Read some key findings below and access the full report here.
Regardless of whether you’ll return to an office, continue working from home, or do a little of both, 75% of professionals agree that turning on video will be crucial for their jobs moving forward. Nearly the same number (72%) believe turning video on makes their company better equipped to support a hybrid workforce.
Few people surveyed thought “video on” should be a mandatory company policy. Still, data suggests that embracing a “video-on” culture can benefit individual contributors and broader business teams, increasing engagement, trust, and productivity.
