Start meetings on time — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Don’t wait for stragglers, or you’ll penalize those who were punctual. Set an exact meeting time (say, 10:10 a.m.) and begin promptly. As latecomers take their seats, don’t stop to summarize what you’ve covered. Let it be known that employees are responsible for gathering all information they might have missed due to their tardiness. Use the opening minutes to introduce helpful points to reward those who came on time.
