Last month, Google’s chief business officer Phillip Schindler was explaining to his employees via videoconferencing why Silicon Valley-based start-up Zoom has edged out some of the biggest names in technology, when suddenly his son surfaced on the camera and asked if his father was using Zoom. The incident was similar to last year’s BBC TV broadcast. An academician was on air when his children venture into the room while their helpless mother tried to make it look like no big deal.
So, while people are juggling between their work and household chores, dressing up does play an important role even as the internet is flooded with pictures of CEOs, employees donning sharp corporate look from waist upwards.
“In testing times like these when we aren’t in our respective offices and not having in-person meetings, it can be quite daunting and one can easily slip into a lackadaisical attitude. This is reflective in not just how we think of ourselves but also engage with others. The effort we make to dress up gears us up to be in a spirited mood,” said Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO, Greyhound Research.
P.S.: SVG, as always, leads with example (see pic below).
All set for my next concall.
