Two separate reports say many workers feel that meetings are their biggest productivity killers on the job, so FOX 9 News spoke with a project management consultant about how to keep meetings moving and on-track.
According to a Salary.com survey, 47 percent of respondents say too many meetings are the biggest productivity killers in the workplace. Another report by Opinion Matters found the workers often spend at least four hours a week in meetings, and regard more than half of that time as "wasted."
So, how to keep meetings on point? Here are some tips:
Set a clear agenda.
Keep cell phones and computers out of it.
Schedule periodic tech breaks to allow people to check up on their work.
Redirect people to the agenda if they ramble off-topic.
