The average American worker spends 11.8 hours of a 40-hour workweek in meetings. However, just 54 percent of workers leave most meetings with a clear idea of what to do next.

The biggest problem workers have with meetings is that many of them are unnecessary. Seventy-six percent of workers have experienced that frustration. Also high on the list are meetings that don’t stay on topic (59 percent) and repetition of things that have already been said (58%).

The precise cost of ineffective meetings is impossible to quantify, but estimates range from $70 billion to $283 billion each year.
