Meet points are areas created to facilitate more casual and/or impromptu meetings. Studies show that these less formal kinds of meeting areas can increase productve communication.
Meetings, even virtual meetings, are still one of the most effective ways that people share and exchange information, get feedback, plan, collaborate and make important decisions for their organizations. So why does the thought of a meeting make us yawn? They seem to be getting longer and generating fewer results. This can result in employees becoming frustrated as they feel that meetings are detracting from their work, rather than adding value to their work. We need more meaningful and productive meetings.
With flexible work locations and schedules becoming increasingly common, it can be challenging to schedule opportunities for face-to-face time with colleagues. When people experience stress as various deadlines loom, often the first thing to get pushed aside is the staff meeting. Well appointed Meet Points help get people together, even for 15 minutes, to get people talking and problem solving together. It can be surprising how a quick meeting can help alleviate stress and re-energize the group. Regular meetings can provide employees with opportunities for mutual support and collaboration, as well as to obtain vital information from each other.
