“Yeah, that meeting could have been an email.”
If you work in the corporate sphere, you’ve probably heard this once or twice. Odds are, you’ve said it yourself. But the meeting vs email debate isn’t unique to just your working environment—it’s felt throughout corporate America.
According to recent research from Zippia, more than half of workers today believe that most of their meetings are unproductive, and 65 percent agree that unproductive meetings prevent them from completing their work.
These statistics suggest that meeting overload is a real problem, but sometimes meetings are necessary. Luckily, there are ways to decide if a meeting is needed or if email is better.
