Telling the truth about SME life today

Over a third of UK workers fall asleep during meetings

The research by tech manufacturers Sharp Europe found that over a quarter of workers think meetings are too long and boring.

Furthermore, over ten per cent of workers have sat through a presentation so dull they have invented a reason to leave, while over half said they are often distracted by other work or personal lives.

However, according to the research, 63 per cent of workers believe meetings would be better if everyone was more able to get involved and share ideas.

Other key findings:

  • 67 per cent believe one personal usually talks too much;
  • 79 per cent think they are more productive outside of meetings; and
  • 54 per cent get distracted during meetings.
