Benefits of standing meetings

Posted on Dec 14, 2018 by admin

Stand-up meetings boost productivity and workplace cooperation.

Here are some benefits of holding your meetings standing up.

Improves efficiency
Stand-up meetings improve efficiency. The mentality of standing up encourages urgency and alertness. A seated posture can lead to a relaxed mindset that can inhibit productivity. Studies have shown that standing up at your meeting can decrease meeting times up to 34 per cent.

Strengthens focus
Stand-up meetings eliminate digital distractions. When your employees are sitting down they are far more likely to answer emails in meeting lulls, be distracted by your staff’s online messaging service or check personal messages. When your meetings are standing up, you are guaranteed to keep your team focused on the task at hand.

Improved collaboration
The increased urgency and focus of your employees result in a higher standard of cooperation. Staff will listen to each other more and be able to come up with collaborative solutions in a far more efficient and effective way.

I am more than pleased with the way they have looked after our financial and tax business interests and especially appreciate the fact that I can ring Garry anytime and get his expert advice whenever I need it. I thoroughly recommend BDS Hughes to all other businesses for people who require a friendly no hassle accountancy team.
