11 people team Zoom backgrounds to mix up your meeting mojo

As you settle into working from home, you’re probably establishing completely new routines. Like, primping your hair in the preview of your Zoom call or going for a stroll in the park you’ve neglected since moving to the neighborhood. It’s the new normal, and we’re all doing it.

It’s human nature to establish routines; likewise, it’s natural to want to mix things up once we get a bit bored. While rearranging the succulents in your home office might scratch the itch, we have another idea for mixing up your meeting mojo: a new video conferencing background specifically designed for HR and people teams.

Indeed, fun and funky meeting backgrounds are having a moment. And not just because they’re more aesthetically pleasing than, say, a blank wall. Changing up your Zoom background can also inspire some informal – and uplifting – conversation at the start of a call, something HR experts from all-remote companies recommend versus diving straight into business. With that in mind, we’ve created these backgrounds for your next people team video call.
