Most meetings seem like a complete waste of time . . . we all know it. But is it actually true? Well . . . sort of.
According to a new survey, one-quarter of the time you spend in meetings is completely wasted. So if a meeting is an hour long, 15 minutes of it is taken up by chit chat and other non-work-related stuff.
The survey also asked people what annoys them the MOST about work meetings. Here are the top five responses.
1. When the person in charge doesn't have a clear agenda. So it lasts longer than it should.
2. When the person DOES have an agenda, but then goes on a bunch of tangents.
3. Not ending the meeting on time, for whatever reason.
4. Not starting on time.
5. Having to be at a meeting that doesn't involve you in any way.
