How to Keep Your Employees Engaged At Business Meetings

business meetings

Being a Philadelphia limo service, we know a thing or two about the business world. When we aren’t busy driving around all our corporate clients and everyone who wants to come to town to visit for fun, we’re busy running a business. That means having the occasional business meeting, and we’ve become pretty good at keeping our employees engaged when we’re meeting. We like to keep things short and sweet, educational, and informative, so we create engagement and knowledge. We want to help you do the same when you have your next business meeting.

Make a Bold Statement

One of the best ways to keep your employees engaged at business meetings is by beginning with a bang. Make a bold statement when the meeting starts. Ruffle some feathers or get people interested in what is being said. When you do this, you state what you want to do, what you are worried about, or what you think is working well. This sets the tone for the rest of the meeting, and it leaves people excited about all they might learn.

Offer Refreshments

Nothing makes people feel less likely to engage than the desperate need for a cup of tea or coffee, a bottle of water, or something to eat. Your employees spend a lot of time working hard, and they might not always have the time to grab a snack or a meal prior to heading to business meetings. If you want them to listen, offer them a solution to their thirst and hunger issues, so they’re not just thinking about food.

Choose the Right Speaker

You can have two different people say the same exact thing, but people are going to listen to the one who knows the proper way to address the public. It doesn’t matter so much what people say than how they say it. If you find someone who is engaging, entertaining, and humorous, you’re going to find your employees are more likely to listen and learn. Someone dry and uninteresting will result in a lot of wandering thoughts in the audience.

Allow Questions

Let people ask questions. It’s difficult to take away anything from a meeting if you can’t ask questions, so set up a time for people to ask. Let them know from the start there will be a moment to ask questions so they can make notes, ask something they want to know, and even offer their own insights on the meeting. When people feel they are being heard, they’re going to pay more attention.
