What is the point of a business meeting?
Effective meetings can accomplish project goals, resolve conflicts and improve employee performance. The end result of those processes is the time and money saved. Meeting rooms are a venue for team members to engage and interact with one another, sharing concerns that they would not feel comfortable discussing over email. Having team members come together and understand the decision making process behind their project goals and tasks will motivate each individual, allowing them to realize their unique importance to the company’s long term goal.
Meetings are also essential for feedback and resolving issues that have arisen in attaining the teams’ goals. As conflicts and problems occur, it is fundamental that a coordinator is on hand to control the situation and help the team to work collaboratively. Questions on how to improve and resolve these issues can be answered immediately and clarified. Additionally, physical interaction is vital in order to build supportive and dynamic working relationships.
Despite the growing number of companies that offer a ‘work from home’ option, (and we have some tips for that here), team meetings can allow individuals to cross-collaborate on tasks together. This allows employees to feel that they are not alone, rather that they are all striving together in pursuit of a unified goal. Assisting employees to overcome loneliness while working from home will not only improve their mental health but will also improve their work ethic.
Here at Rostie, to make the process seamless for our clients we offer fully customizable office and meeting spaces while also providing full tech support, catering and 24/7 access to meeting rooms. Our PATH-connected accommodation is beautifully designed with its own unique views of Toronto’s south core, and just steps away from the Air Canada Center.
