“I love meetings!” – said no one ever. Most employees don’t look forward to meetings as they are often viewed as disruptive, inefficient, or downright boring.
This is a problem, since according to a study by Verizon the average professional attends roughly 60 meetings per month. Furthermore, inefficient meetings can be very costly for companies. These costs include:
$37 billion is lost annually to meetings.
$338 in average salary cost of a meeting.
15% of organizational personnel budget is spent on meetings.
