Get Face-to-Face and be More Productive

Workplace meetings are often described as a necessary evil, but a 2006 study by researchers at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte showed that some employees actually look forward to a daily meeting, even if they wouldn’t admit to it publicly.

Even if your employees like attending meetings, it still doesn’t mean that your meetings are actually productive and efficient. A good meeting inspires collaboration – and good collaboration leads to more and better brainstorming, as well as knowledgeable, efficient and ultimately happy employees. Oh, and don’t forget that good collaboration renders a better “bottom-line.”

Videoconferencing and virtual meetings are efficient ways to get together – they cut down on travel time and expenses but still offer a personalized and often convenient method for colleagues to collaborate. Workers who can remotely access an online meeting – even if the meeting is taking place in the same city – might come better prepared and less stressed if they don’t have to fight daily traffic and parking issues. Online meetings for remote workers can have compounding effects – employees who thrive at work might be more likely to thrive at home too. And a productive workplace might demonstrate core benefits that the employee carries into their personal life.
