Employees often dread company meetings because they end up feeling stale. Some meetings are similar to the point where they all blend together, and you can’t remember what was accomplished. From Biz Bash, here are some tips to revive a company meeting and turn it into one employees get excited for:
Better breakfasts: More health conscious employees no longer want breakfast meetings to include pastries, muffins, or bagels. Eliminate processed foods where you can and mix in some healthy fruits, nuts, or juice blends.
Paper notes: It’s super convenient to have a laptop or tablet in a meeting, but the surefire way to retain information is old-fashioned pen and paper. Encourage attendees to turn off their devices from time to time and just brainstorm by hand.
Incorporate Movement: Attendees will have increased attention span, sharpness, and creativity when they aren’t stuck in a chair all day. Incorporate some movement into the meeting, whether it’s standing for activities, or a break for a walk or yoga.
Prepare a FAQ: For bigger events, anticipate questions in advance and prepare an FAQ for event attendees. The event will be less stressful for attendees if they can get any questions answered ahead of time so they come to the meeting prepared and relaxed.
