Summary: All over our Work From Anywhere World™, people are asking why meetings, virtual and otherwise, are making us tired, cranky and uninspired with our work. As virtual meeting fatigue sets in, we imagine a time when we stop describing meetings as “a time suck.” Where we meet just often enough, no one dominates the conversation and everyone is engaged in critical thinking about ideas and collective goals to Get Smart Stuff Done™.
It’s not only possible but probable. We’ve reached a level in our working lives where we can rely less on meetings for critical operations status and more on performance metrics for the answers, with the help of Ninety® Whole Company Tools.™
Virtual meeting fatigue is real. And people are tired of it.
While 65% say meetings keep them from completing their work, 73% admit they use meeting time to do other work, which suggests people are probably attending too many unnecessary meetings to try and get stuff done.
