How to make meetings more effective and when to make an accident at work claim against your employer
Meetings are a great way of getting people together that normally wouldn’t spend much time together throughout the workday, so that you can all trade ideas and experiences and come up with valuable solutions to the problem that the business is having. A meeting is also a good way to check in with everyone at the same time, and find out about any new problems which you might not already know about.
The danger with a meeting is that there are too many people in the room and that you won’t be able to get everything done that you wanted to. Here are some tips for ensuring that this is not the case.
- Stick to a couple of subjects. Try not to just have one major monthly meeting where you discuss all of the problems and issues that have arisen in the past month. This is likely to be too much information for anyone to handle, and is bound to lead to issues. Try to stick to one or two subjects per meeting.
- Have meetings regularly. Try to have at least one meeting per week, at specific times of the day and week depending on who you are meeting with. If these meetings are regular then people will put them into their diaries without thinking, meaning that you won’t have to chase people to attend.
- Follow up after meetings. Try to send out an email within 24 hours of any meeting, which lists everything that was discussed, and which items need to be followed up on by the next meeting. This prevents anyone from forgetting anything, and ensures that people are making the effort to move forward after the meeting.
