How Technology Can Streamline Your End-of-Year Meeting

simonbryan  by Simon on Jun 24, 2011

Your end of year HR department meeting is an important time for the entire department to catch up and recap how the year as a whole went. It may involve surveys, comparing goals and objectives with outcomes, brainstorming ideas for the upcoming year, redefining evaluation procedures and hopefully a few fun activities. With only one day to fit in a review of the past year and to make important decisions or changes for the upcoming year, it’s imperative to make the most out of your time. Running efficient sessions, hearing what your employees have to say and adding a little fun can make all the difference.


Live Polling: Choosing Your Set-Up

When conducting live polling during a presentation, it is important to keep a couple of factors in mind. During the past few years we have tweaked several elements based on the type of presentation we were conducting. Below are three elements to keep in mind while planning your presentation.

Know your audience

This is an important factor, as you want to make sure the material you cover is both relevant and educational. If the audience knows everything in the presentation, they will quickly lose focus and glaze over the material presented. You may also lose points with your audience if you are in a professional meeting and have a lot of random animations, bells and whistles that do not flow with the rest of your presentation.
