Meetings Case Histories
Meetings, meetings, meetings. Is there anything more tedious? More time consuming? Less productive?
Probably not, but there is something you can do about it. If you want to make your meetings pay off, use promotional products to add key elements of fun, messages, image, and purpose.

Getting people to show up on time for meetings is always a challenge. One thing you can do is start your meeting at an odd time, like 8:20. Another is to reward those on time. A simple, yet relevant reminder would be to use a watch as a reward to the first person to show up to a meeting. This puts pressure on others to show up on time. It can also be used for groups, such as when managers or supervisors fail to get time sheets in on time. Giving watches to the crew whose foreman gets the time sheets in early will cause the other foremen to be "peer pressured" into getting their work in on time the next time around.
