Every business has meetings in one form or another, and the time spent in those meetings can make or break your company. It is easy to lose track and waste time, but in the same vein, meetings are necessary to the success of your business. How to Have an Effective Meeting: In order to have a more productive meeting, we offer five helpful tips for more effective meetings. 1) Write and distribute an agenda for each meeting. Having a schedule written down allows everyone attending the meeting to prepare accordingly. This way, they know what to expect and how to respond to each task in the meeting.

If someone doesnt have anything to say or hear at the meeting, then they dont belong at the meeting. You want to make sure everyone there is getting value out of that meeting. 3)

The importance of Ohio employers documenting their employees performance issues cannot be overstated. Too many employers rely on employment at will, and thats a dangerous position to take because the cost of turnover is so high.

So they need to know that somethings wrong. No One Likes to be in Trouble Nobody likes to be in trouble, but they must know that if they are not meeting expectations or failing to comply, it will result in progressive discipline. As an employer, it is your responsibility to communicate and document the issue to allow your employee to understand that their actions, or lack thereof,
