Whether it is a bad hair day, a bad makeup day or the truth is that the person is really making the turn onto the back 9, as videoconferencing is becoming more everyday in the business environment, there are certain expectations of professionalism.

While sitting around in your shorts and gym shoes may have been a telecommuting luxury of yesteryear, with videoconferencing being widely available today, the game needs to be stepped up where at the very least we are looking good from the waist up. Kind of like the joke they always make about news anchors.

Having said that, looking good while videoconferencing isn’t always easy. It is more than just good hair and makeup, it can have to do with the camera, the lighting, and the often unspoken but critical component, audio.
