AMBOSS, a healthcare organization in Germany has been doing No Meeting Wednesday for a few months and since then, they reported that a large majority of their employees came back reporting much lesser stressed.

Although this statement may not be true for every organization, we can take a step to see what are the merits for having a no-meeting in a mid week weekday like Wednesday.

  1. Time For Employees to catch up work to do. Action items from a meeting need time to follow up.
  2. A break time from screen time from Zoom or MS Teams Meeting may help to improve Employees' well being.

We hope that this suggestion can help you to improve your Employee Satisfaction Index.
