A new trend is gaining speed at tech companies and no whinging of tired legs is allowed. Say good-bye to sit-down meetings – short and to the point ‘stand up’ meetings may be taking hold.

    Interesting concept and another way of not treating employees with respect and dignity. Perhaps a better way is to actually learn how to run meetings with and use an agenda so that people know what is expected. I would encourage people being made to sing a nursery rhyme or pay a small fine to say that the behaviour is inappropriate and breaches the Code of Conduct in relation to respect and dignity. The sooner these types of behaviours are recognised for what they really are, the better off we will be.

    By all means, have a stand up meeting but use an agenda and treat people with respect and dignity.
