Love them or hate them, meetings are an essential platform for sharing information, brainstorming new ideas and collaborating as a team. But new research from Accountemps suggested that employees don’t just find them unncessary, but also a waste of time.

More than a third (36%) of the 1,000 workers surveyed admitted that they’re less engaged during remote meetings, while almost half (47%) of the 2,000 over finance leaders surveyed said the same regarding their staff.

Some of the issues that workers have with meetings include them starting or ending late or taking too long.
