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 less stressed.

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

  1. Time For Employees to catch up on work to do. Action items from a meeting need time to follow up.
  2. A break 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.
