    Is it mandatory to join every meeting which happens in company?

    I work in one of the leading software companies and most of the time is filled with meeting with higher authorities or trainings and so on there is hardly time to work. So is it OK if I skip those meetings? Will it create a bad impression to my Manager? Can you please tell me how to tackle these situations in company? Thanks.

    Hi..I think the best way to deal with such situations is to manage your time properly..If you skip all or most of the meetings then it will certainly create a bad impression on your manager..So you should try to attend most of the meetings skipping only the unnecessary ones..

    Your work is your priorty..So you should see to it that you complete your work on time and thus give no reason to your manager for a bad impression..So you should try to balance both these things if you want to have good professional growth at your workplace..

    Also dont take too much stress or pressure as its not good for your health and can lead to many general ailments..Also it will result in deterioration of your work performance..So if you think you cant handle this leave this job and go and find another one where there is less stess..

    Good luck..Thnak you

    Dear questioner as per question you are an valued employee of the company only for that reason you are invited to join in meeting.there are sufficient reasons/grounds to attend meetings through which you can gear up your knowledge about the company and you can know every thing about the position/marketing etc.

    You should always remember company's development means your development directly or indirectly.so the idea to skip up meeting always is not the correct solution.respect the company's decision keep proposal at the meeting about problems and find out ways and means to mitigate the problem.

    Thank you.

    Hey..
    Working in software companies calls for such time mangament issues. The best solution to such problems is to work diligently and complete the work alloted to you in a stipulated time frame. Set short term goals for yourself and finish the task in that time duration. This will help you complete your work and at the same time attend meetings with the higher authorities which are definitely an important part of the professional life.
    Also I feel that by missing meetings you might miss out about the latest developments that are happening in the company. Meetings are a platform where everyone meets and discusses issues. They are very importnat to develop a healthy working environment.
    At the same time its ok to miss one or two meetings ocassionally. But in this case you should state the reason for your absence to your manager. I am sure that if you manage your time well, you wil be able to manage both meetings and work effectively.

    All the best. Thank you.

    So it is not mandatory but not useless to attend meeting,it has the value through this your added knowledge about the company will surely increase which will be helpful to combat any disadvantages you feel.so welcome meeting honestly/sincerely any it will help you in future.

    Thank you,

    Hello sir

    It is not mandatory to attend all the meetings happens in your company but you have to attend all the meetings which are related to your department.Every meeting is held for some special reasons so you have to analyze the motive of meeting to attend whether it wil be positive for you or not.

    Other then this you must attend all the meetings regarding the development and analysis of comapany performance to know about the organization where you are working

    Dear Aspirant,

    Attending meeting is also one of the work.Ignoring it will definately give bad impression to the manager.If you don't want to attend some of the meeting,you will have to take prior permission from the authority concerned explainig the fact situation.

    In order to complete your work,you should have plan to do it.It includes time,man & money management.

    Obedience is one of the good character of the employee.

    Thanks & good luck.

    I think the simplest thanks to touch upon such things is to manage some time properly..If you skip all or most of the conferences then it'll actually produce a foul impression on your manager..So you must attempt to attend most of the conferences skipping solely the unessential ones..

    Your work is your cloister..So you must see to that that you just complete your work on time and so offer no reason to your manager for a foul impression..So you must attempt to balance each these items if you wish to possess smart skilled growth at your geographic point..

    additionally do not take an excessive amount of stress or pressure as its not smart for your health and might cause several general ailments..Also it'll end in deterioration of your work performance..So if you think that you cant handle this leave this job and go and realize another one wherever there's less stress..
    Working in computer code firms needs such time management problems. the simplest resolution to such issues is to figure diligently and complete the work alloted to you in an exceedingly stipulated time-frame. Set short term goals for yourself and end the task in this time period. this can assist you complete your work and at an equivalent time attend conferences with the upper authorities that ar positively a very important a part of the vocation.
    additionally I feel that by missing conferences you would possibly miss out regarding the newest developments that are happening within the company. conferences ar a platform wherever everybody meets and discusses problems. they're terribly imploring to develop a healthy operating setting.
    At an equivalent time its okay to miss one or 2 conferences sometimes. however during this case you must state the rationale for your absence to your manager. i'm certain that if you manage some time well, you'll be ready to manage each conferences and work effectively.

    Hello friend,
    yeah along with work attaining meetings are equally important,because they count a part of your KRA and during your appraisal they check how many meetings you have attained and skipped.you should not miss any important meetings like meetings invited by client regarding your ongoing project and new technologies to be implemented.
    meetings conducted by HR for new policies.
    Meeting conducted by project manager and SPM for ongoing project.
    you can skip casual meetings like outing plan,b'day celebration...etc
    Thank You.

    Dear Friend!

    There is no need to join every meeting which are not important for company or your company's manager. First you may judge for meeting, which are important for you or not . Because if you miss every meeting then it can be harmful for company as well for your manager and will create a bad impression for your manager. You know very well also that Meetings are organised for client, company project , business, company development etc. So please decide first to go before the meeting that more important for you and your manager.

    Dear Friend,

    A company,especially IT, will organize a bunch of meeting.

    There is no need to attend all the meetings.

    Priorities your time,ie if the meeting is not concerning you or your project and is of low priority you may omit it.

    But don't escape from training programs provided by the company.

    Also make sure that you get all the notifications and the resulting decision taken at those meetings in your ears.

    Also be in a good term with the manager.

    Also mention your time problem to him at a suitable time.

    Wish you all the best.

    Re: Is it mandatory to join every meeting which happens in company?

    Hi friend,
    Meetings and knowledge transfer calls helps you to get better picture of the system. You need not to attend all the meetings. There should be a meeting request which says who are all mandatory and who are optional. Also what is the agenda and how much duration etc.

    Based on this information you have to decide whether to attend or not. Manager generally want to participate for some meetings. For some meetings he won't considered at all.

    Hope this helps you.
    Regards,
    BSR.

    Hey pal,
    Ofcourse it's gonna be hectic to attend all the meetings and work for the company at the same time. Now to cope up with such situations it is best to prepare a time table that is gonna help you to manage your time. If you skip the meetings then it'll automatically put a negative impression on your officials and i bet you don't want that.

    As far as possible attend the meetings and if by any luck if there is a chance that your not being in the meeting won't effect the meeting, then talk to your officials and you can skip it..

    No Friend,
    It is not OK if you skip the meetings.

    As you have mentioned in your question that you work in one of the leading software companies so it is necesary to attened those meetings.

    The meetings with higher authorities and trainings will help to increase your knowledge and skills also.

    You are a part of the company thus it is mandatory for you to know the ups and down about your company.

    Some time you may have some problem but for that you should take permission from your manager with a valid reason for not attending the meeting.

    If you do not obey your manager then it will definitle create a bad impression to your Manager.

    For completing your work you should do your time management properly.

    Your work is also necessary to complete and thus you need to plan accrodingly.

    THANK YOU...!!

    Re: Is it mandatory to join every meeting which happens in company?

    Hello friend

    You should definitely attend the meetings of your company especially which are very important and related to your work.You should not skip all or most of the meetings as this will definitely lower your reputation in the company and also will definitely create a bad impression on your manager. In order to tackle this situation in your company you should learn the art of time management. Both attending the meetings and completing your work on time are equally important if you want to make a good impression on your boss and get good appreciation and professional growth in your company.

    So manage your time in order to do both the things simultaneously and hence to make a good impression on your manager and all the senior officials in general. Please I would advice you not to mis the important and work-related meetings atleast. You should know that working hard is not only the method to success but als you should maintain good relations with your boss.

    Good luck friend

    Re: Is it mandatory to join every meeting which happens in company?

    In any company, some meetings are mandatory for all the employees like

    Fire meeting
    company functions

    Then all the employees must attend.

    There are some other meetings for which you can or can not attend.

    It is upto your interest.

    But if you feel that meeting will fetch you something, then better to attend.

    So, you are the person who will have to evaluate all these things.

    Dear aspirant I have studied your statement here you mentioned you are to attend company meetings almost daily.Under this situation you asked what to do , am I skip most of the meetings or else please give me suggestion.

    Dear friend you have the importance to the company you are a part of the company always think positively.If you attend every meeting what are the merits you can achieve you are to think first, second if this usage is bad then of course there is no need to conduct such meeting.If you have the ambition about your job ambition you must have to get interests for such meeting.I can say these meetings are also a part of education to maintain a smooth functioning, meeting and resolution is indispensible.

    If you get no interest and think there is no need at all to attend the meeting if you are the own master of your future then after keeping friendly relations you can skip,without the interest and merit it is not right to waste time.

    Thank You,

    HELLO SIR

    This situation arises for most of the people...but you can't just skip the work for sure and for meeting too. You must suggest your boss about this first.
    Basically meetings are made to make the company run successful. So you must attend the meeting for sure. So you must go and ask your boss about the situation..so that he could make some solution.

    HOPE YOU GOT THE SOLUTION...THANK YOU..HAVE A NICE DAY..!

    Re: Is it mandatory to join every meeting which happens in company?

    It depends upon the meeting that is being held, if any meeting is related to your work that you must attend the meeting. Also if it is not that important as per you but your boss/manager

    asks you to attend it than you must attend it as he wants you to be there.

    As you are saying that you are not able to work on the tasks given to you, you can ask about this to your manager. You must discuss this problem with your manager so that he would

    be clear about your situation.

    As he knows the importance of the work given to you, he will understand your problem and will help you for the same.

    Hello,

    you should attend all the meeting with your manager. As it will help you in future while the time of increment and promotion.
    As in software company's there are always a issues of increment or not getting proper hike.So if you will attend all the meeting you can justify your self.
    You can manage your time properly as you can attend the meeting as well as can do your work on time.

    Re: Is it mandatory to join every meeting which happens in company?

    Dear this is really mandatory to attend all necessary meetings and training which are with various companies and if you will not get the training or will not attend any meeting which is organized by your company then you will definitely make a bad impression in the company and this will show that you are irresponsible to your work and do not care about the profit of the company and this will effect your career in the company and you will be so far from hikes and promotion in the company that is why I wants to suggest you that you should not miss or skip from any type of meeting or training or any other important work of your company because you are working for someone who gave you the job to survive and if you will interject them then how will you survive but if you have any type of urgent work of your company and you have limited time to complete the work then you may tell to your manager that sir I have some urgent work and I am busy in that so please send another candidate for meeting and if I will not give more time to work then it would not be completed at the time then your manager can understand and will not send you again and again

    All the best
