Poorly run or unnecessary meetings are one of the top complaints employees have about their jobs.
Slowly but surely, people are beginning to understand the importance of scheduling consistent meetings. In today’s society, it’s easy to get lost in a non-stop work cycle and push your limits beyond what’s healthy.

Additionally, have a consistent duration for each meeting. Whether it’s 30 minutes or an hour, knowing how long the meeting will be will help people plan their days accordingly.
