Make Employees Pay for Meetings?

Make Employees Pay for Meetings?


WHAT?  We don’t want meetings in the first place.  Making employees pay for meetings is adding insult to injury.

“Imagine if a 30-minute meeting with three people cost $50, and each additional person was $10. Adding 30 minutes doubles the cost. So, an hour meeting with four people would be $120,” he writes.

“If sending out a meeting invitation reduced a finite resource (and it does, this just makes it explicit), there would be second thoughts about whether this specific meeting was worth it. Maybe the meeting could be limited to 30 minutes if the topics were sent out beforehand. Perhaps only four people are required, not six. Maybe the question could be summed up in a succinct email instead.” (1)

How about we make meeting attendance ‘optional’ and not mandatory?
