17 Percent of Employees Would Rather Watch Paint Dry Than Attend Meetings
They may be called "status meetings" "check-ins" "team meetings" or "updates." You may have them once a month, once a week, once a day or once every quarter. They all have one thing in common: Your employees hate them.
It might surprise you to learn just how much. In a recent Harris poll, sponsored by the online collaboration company Clarizen, 46 percent of respondents said they'd prefer to do almost anything else instead of sitting in a status meeting. Seventeen percent said they would choose to watch paint dry. Eight percent said they would opt for root canal.
