Engaging your employees at work has been proven to create more productive and prosperous companies. Assembling for town halls, offsites, and smaller internal meetings is an essential tradition. It should lead to alignment and growth, but if the meetings don’t have actionable agendas, employees can leave feeling disconnected and bored. Workforce’s annual study on “The State of Enterprise Work” reported for the second year in a row that employees in office environments feel that meetings were their single biggest obstacle to productivity.
Ineffective meetings may be a common problem, but they don’t need to be an ongoing one.
According to Virgin Pulse, 80% of businesses plan to improve their corporate culture in 2017. Engagement is on every leader’s mind, and the asset of employee ideation is within grasp with the right tools.
