Virtual collaboration is an efficient alternative to time-sink, in-person meetings. However, few recognize its value, which is unfortunate, for a third of all meetings aren’t productive.
Other shocking statistics on meetings:
- An estimated $37 billion is lost every year to unproductive meetings.
- A whopping 37% of meetings start late, mostly because someone attending it was late.
- 948 execs and managers say 44.8% of meetings they attend accomplish nothing.
Fortunately, we live in an era where we don’t need to meet to work productively since virtual collaboration tools can help us connect and make the most of our time at the office.
Listed below are a few virtual collaboration tactics to help you reduce the number of meetings, execute tasks and projects efficiently, and some best practices you can use to bring out the best in your employees in a virtual setting.
