Company meetings are meant to be productive, but often become frustrating and possibly damaging to your employee culture. As management personnel, it’s your job to make sure company meetings are as productive as possible. Consider the following tips.
Set an Agenda.
The first and easiest way to have your company meetings be more productive, is to set an agenda – and send it to those attending. This also allows your employees to know what to expect. It will also help you stay on topic and fulfill the purpose of the meeting.
Have Them at the Same Time Every Week.
If you have regular meetings, holding them at the same time/place every week/month, etc., will increase productiveness. There are several reasons for this. First, your employees will know to expect this, and therefore, be prepared with questions and feedback in preparation for this meeting. Second, your employees won’t be caught “off-guard,” so they will be more receptive to items discussed in the meeting.
Allow Your Employees to Submit Feedback.
The last and best way to have your company meetings to be more productive is by allowing employees to submit feedback. A meeting isn’t effective if you’re just talking at your employees the whole time; you should be talking with them. Allow your employees to submit feedback before the meeting, so you can address their concerns, and seek more feedback during the meeting.
