The majority of workplace meetings are inefficient and less productive than they could be. Attending meetings often takes time away from actively working, meaning a poorly run meeting can be a waste of everyone’s time and result in a loss of productivity. With the rise in telecommuting and the globalization of the workplace, employees are not always physically present for meetings. Although employees generally benefit from these alternative types of work arrangements, it can make certain workplace functions, such as meetings, especially challenging. Researchers have made several recommendations about how to make meetings more engaging, these can be especially useful when not everyone is physically present.
