I am looking for ways that managers handle staff meetings when the staff cannot break away from the work.
I work in a 24/7 operation where we cannot get away from the work in order to have a meeting. What we have done is hold two staff meetings. This is to accommodate those on different schedules as well as having the people scheduled for the 1st meeting to work during the 2nd, and vice-versa.
Unfortunately, this does not allow the entire staff to participate together. In the past, we've tried to hold the meeting in the operational area but the noise level, ringing phones, etc. hurt the effectiveness of the meeting.
I wonder how other managers are handling this type of situation. Perhaps there is a better way.
