What’s more personal than a name? We make painstaking efforts to find the perfect name for our children and pets. We obsess over celebrity baby names and chuckle over clever band names. Real estate developers invest millions of dollars to hire companies to create the perfect name for new condominiums and communities. In today’s fast-paced business world, some companies even live and die by their names. And there are some real doozies out there.
Consider a slow but consistent faucet leak. You may barely notice the individual drips, but before you realize, you’re up to your ankles in water. Bad meeting culture proliferates a company much in the same way. Examined in individual pieces, bad habits around company meetings may not seem like that big of a deal. However, often, those bad habits create a snowball of more bad habits that, when added together, result in an entirely toxic meeting culture.

Know the signs of a bad meeting culture and the steps you can take to eliminate them.
An Activity-based workplace is an ever-changing environment. New and alternate approaches to workplaces are continually emerging. The latest growing trend is called Activity Based Working (ABW).
Activity Based Working aims to boost collaboration, productivity, and flexibility while reducing costs. It's a workplace strategy that provides people with a choice of settings for a variety of workplace activities. Rather than forcing individuals to undertake all their work at one setting, ABW allows people to physically locate themselves where it is most suitable for them to complete their job.
