Pointless and unproductive meetings will cost £45bn in 2019

Researcher from Doddle has found that the average professional spends two hours a week in pointless meetings, or over 24bn hours of working time. Professionals were also asked to rank pointless meetings against other common occurrences by how irritating they found them:

Ineffective meetings (89%)
Delayed commute (84%)
A stubbed toe (80%)
Getting caught in the rain without an umbrella (54%)

Poor meetings affect people’s behaviour; if a meeting isn’t working they end up bringing other work and multi-tasking rather than focusing on the meeting.  Consider is if the meeting really is essential, and if those invited are required to be present. Try to keep meetings as on-topic as possible to ensure no extra time is wasted.
