Do you hold regular company meetings?
  v7.0 Posted at 22/05/2018 4:14 PM by Ulysses Maclaren
One risk of running a consulting company is your employees can start to feel disconnected from the main organisation, especially if they spend all of their time working onsite. One solution is to get them to work from the office at least once or twice per week, and another is to hold regular company meetings.​

​These meetings should be held every 1-2 months as needed, and give the chance for everyone to get together and reconnect. The business owner can highlight any key things that have happened in that time and point out any changes for the next period. ​

There may also be time for a couple of other people to address everyone if there are any key things that need to be b​rought up.

So that it doesn't impact client work too much, it's generally best if this meeting can be timeboxed to about 1 hour and be held over lunch.

After each meeting, the organiser should set the date  for the next one and send out an appointment with a "Skype Meeting" request, so available people can simply click the "Join Meeting" link to join, as this saves time and makes the beginning of the meeting run smoothly.
