How to Send out Meeting Reminders
It’s important to get the right people in your meetings, or else decisions cannot be made. Writing effective meeting reminders is a large part of this. In today’s world, people often send text message reminders or emails rather than making a phone call. It’s also commonplace to print a reminder out to put up where people will see it, depending on the meeting you’re planning. So many will send a meeting request text message along with printing the reminder.
New to Meeting Reminders
It can be hard to write these reminders in the right tone, and with the correct information. Beginners find this especially tricky. It’s important to convey a friendly tone so the person does not feel that they are being told off. Missing a meeting is common, with 96% of employees admitting to having missed meetings in the past. Not only this, but almost 50% of employees have stated that meeting attendees arriving late or leaving early is disruptive and a sign of a bad meeting. So, if the meeting slips one person’s mind, then the chances are it’ll ruin it for at least half of the attendees. So, how do meeting leaders and businesses combat this? Well, an effective meeting reminder is one way! Here are some examples you can learn from.
