What to Wear to Appear More ‘Trustworthy’ and ‘Authentic’ in Zoom Meetings

In March 2020, most white-collar professionals began working from home due to Covid-19. Since then, video conferencing has been the go-to way to conduct business meetings and job interviews. And according to a new Quantified Communications survey, the results of which were recently published in the Harvard Business Review, video conferencing will be here to stay long after the coronavirus is gone.

Administered to 465 professionals, the survey found that 86 percent of respondents are “satisfied” with their video meetings, and 70 percent anticipate using video conferencing apps “the same amount as today or more, even after social distancing guidelines are lifted.”

In addition, the survey found that, in video meetings, respondents receive strong impressions from their colleagues’ attire and backgrounds. To that end, below are some of the survey’s sartorial and aesthetic findings, which will help you the next time you’re preparing to Zoom, Skype, or Google Meet for work.
