In today’s increasingly global business world, it is rare that everyone is in the same place at the same time. But, as they say, the show must go on, which is why Videoconferencing has continued to grow in popularity. Videoconferencing not only allows businesses to connect with clients and business partners across the country or even across the globe, but also attract and retain top talent. With videoconferencing technology constantly improving, more and more businesses are open to the idea of telecommuting. You won’t even know the employee isn’t in the building.
Basically, videoconferencing just makes businesses better. Period.
“I believe that video conferencing is one of the best ways to maintain a level of interpersonal communication that can often get lost or misinterpreted over email,” explains Jamie Schember, an Avaya.com blogger.
But if you aren’t careful, you could easily embarrass yourself.

Don’t Forget That People Can See You
Just because you aren’t in the same room with your colleagues doesn’t mean they can’t see your every move. That is the beauty of video. It also leads to some pretty embarrassing moments. So please, please, please be ever-vigilant and remember that you are on camera.
Ensure the Connection
Just because you can see and hear others does not mean that they can see and hear you. Don’t just assume you have a good connection. Make sure you have a good connection.
Utilize the Mute Button
The mute button is there for a reason. Use it. No one wants to hear your side conversations.
Dress the Part
As we have already mentioned, people can see you. Dress for the camera. Just because you are working from home doesn’t mean you should telecommute in your pajamas.
