This article by Ali Donaldson, writing for Inc., makes these points about meetings:
- Cutting unnecessary meetings could save businesses an estimated $25,000 per employee each year and improve productivity and morale.
- The research found that:
- Employees spend over a third of their time at work in meetings.
- During a typical week, work calendars are filled with 17.7 meetings.
- These meetings lasted a total of 18 hours.
