We're reaching the end of a year like no other, and it seems like one of the only things that stayed consistent throughout the year is the value of virtual interactions. As you continue to perfect the art of virtual relationships, check out our recent blog post on how to most effectively participate in videos calls, from looking the part to following the unwritten rules of Zoom.
