I'm just gonna go ahead and say it. I think what this survey REALLY should say is this, "12 percent of at-home workers skip video due to lack of wanting to wear pants".

According to UPI -

Mentimeter, an interactive presentation tool, announced it commissioned a survey of 1,500 people working from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic and found 12 percent of respondents admitted to keeping their video cameras off during meetings on Zoom, Skype or Google Hangouts because they were naked or only partially clothed.

So next time you feel nervous to speak during your next at-home work meeting, just remember the phrase, "Picture everyone in their underwear". Because if your coworker's video is off, that's most likely the case. Other hilarious details from the survey include -


The company also said 44 percent of those surveyed admitted they dressed in more professional attire specifically for video meetings, while 16 percent said they had re-arranged their homes to look more professional in the background of a video call.

Here's to crushing working at home. Pants or no pants.
