More Meetings = Less Breathing Space - Breathing Space Blog

The typical employee spends +30 hours monthly in meetings and regards at least half of that time to be unnecessary. The calculated cost of unnecessary meetings is $37 billion a year.

Research by Bain & Company indicates that the typical manager consumes at least one full day each week in meetings, and that senior executives devote 40% of the work week in ineffective meetings. None of the findings above includes the time preparation and follow up time consumed before and after meetings.
