The only reason you see TNR and Arial everywhere is because it’s what most office tools default to; a vast percentage of users think of “fonts” as something you change up only for decorative use like a birthday invitation. (Ditto for the more modern Calibri and Cambria.)
To use any other font, someone with experience in page design has to have walked through the production. Otherwise, you end up reading a long report in something horrid and unreadable because the author wanted to be “different” but had no clue that body fonts need to be selected with great, great care.
My experience over about thirty years (beginning before that with Selectric type balls) is that about 99% of the business/professional world doesn’t give a shit about this “font” and “style” crap, and 99% of the remainder reinforce the viewpoint when they try to screw with it.
However… I have strong-armed a few clients into using an unusual font choice for all their materials, and in those select cases they come to both understand it and love it - their reports and memos jump out of the piles and get extra attention even though the readers have almost no clue why. It can become part of a company identity, and pay endless dividends if done well.
