Staff meetings are necessary to keep the department or organization running smoothly with the staff updated on the department’s / organization’s welfare. Before the staff meeting can happen, a staff meeting agenda is crucial in preparing the staff for the upcoming meeting. The agenda will list the important topics of discussion or updates which the organization or department head wishes to convey to its staff.
A meeting agenda helps to cut down long meetings as the staff is prepped beforehand on the topics that will be discussed or conveyed to them. It is usually conveyed by facilitator or the secretary.
A Staff meeting agenda template may have the following header:
* Date of Meeting
* Called by / Facilitator
* Start Time of Meeting
Its body will mainly consist of:
* Agenda / Presenter / Time allotted
The agenda column lists the important topics to be conveyed during the meeting; knowing them before the meeting allows staff to be participative in the meeting. The RSVP column allows staff to send in their apologies to the facilitator before the meeting or send in their opinions and suggestions to the listed agenda, if they know that they are unable to attend the meeting.
The template can also put down various helpful components related to the meeting at the lower portion, such as:
* Resources required (computer, LCD projector, markers)
* Food & Beverage
Consider the attached sample template for your convenience.
