There are 25 million meetings happening today in the U.S. That statistic is astounding, and with the millions of hours spent daily in meetings rooms, it’s no wonder an estimated $37 billion a year is wasted on unproductive meetings.
Bad meetings are all around us, but there is a better way!
If you’ve ever left a meeting feeling like you left some of your life force behind, you’re not alone. Almost half of employees report that meetings are the biggest time waster at work; and that leaves an impact.
We feel like our time is wasted.
We check out.
We develop meeting dread.
At Vue Columbus, we have designed our meeting environments to be engaging and energizing so your meetings will follow suit!
A meeting doesn’t have to be around a big table. In fact, a study in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that sit-down meetings last 34 percent longer than those held standing up, with no reported gains in effectiveness!
You can use Vue’s standing desks, or ergonomic ball chairs, or hop on our bike to keep your meeting sessions most efficient.
Shift Your Strategy
Consider adjusting your meeting procedures to increase efficiency and decrease tedium. Having a clear agenda, focusing on engaging your team and developing a plan following through on decisions is a great place to start.
At Vue, we’re all about having fun at work. And we encourage our guests to prevent meeting burnout with a game of ping-pong, some desk chair yoga, or a happy hour break outside.
Your meetings should be effective and, dare we say, enjoyable! If you’re ready to break out from the boring, contact our event team to schedule your next meeting at Vue Columbus!
