Sara Whitman, chief people officer at Hot Paper Lantern, a New York City-based marketing communications agency with 40 employees, recommends that employees take a cue from their clients: If clients have their cameras on, employees should, too.
"Giving a presentation is another moment when being seen is important," Whitman said. "We also ask people to turn on video at our weekly all-agency meeting. It's the one time a week when we are all together and can see each other. That's important for community and connection."
