    Is it necessary to have official meeting during lunch?

    I work in IBM as Executive manager in Training department. We have lot of work pressure. Most of the time we extend till late night. My work involves execution of training program. Often our manager keeps his meeting during lunch time. Which is very irritating and we cannot avoid it also. I think lunchtime is the only time in office where your mind will be away from office work and you can give rest to it. Do we need to make our lunch time also official? Is there any other way that i can avoid this? Please suggest.

    Dear sir, It is not wise and sugestable to do or attend meeting at the time of Lunch hour,whatever may be the work pressure within the company it is an odd habitual system to do meeting at the lunch hour.All should come out from such odd habit which is not encourageable to company,employer and employee you all are to find out,manage a viable extra time to organize meeting for the welfare of the company.

    Hi,


    It's really difficult to survive with lot of pressure in these industries

    Lunch break should be taken off and on at regular time interval

    Make this as a practice not only to avoid work pressure also it will be good for your health

    Eating food timely is the best practice

    Talk to your senior official regarding this that you strictly follow this and you cant skip your lunch for anything

    If it doesn't work tell you have health issues so you need to eat timely as suggested by doctor

    Surely this will be accepted

    Be calm . Don't get angry . Talk politely to your higher officials

    HEALTH IS WEALTH



    @@@ Thanks

    Hi friend,

    software companies do consist lot of work pressure, it is true for sure.

    As you have said that you work in a lot of stress condition, so you need to give rest to your mind and make it relax for a moment too.

    Health is very much important when compared to wealth or any thing.

    you probably need to avoid official discussion during lunch break.

    Get yourself relaxed or else its gonna effect your health alot.

    All the employees of you organisation get together and have a discussion about it, and make sure that you make your manager understand your feelings in a polite way.

    so that he can calm down and have a think on what you have said is also right.

    I would like to say that "HEALTH IS THE BIGGEST WEALTH IN THE WORLD".

    THANKING YOU

    Hai friends

    in an software filed the working pressure is high

    generally the meetings keep at morning 10 am

    and at evening 4 pm

    duration the lunch time you mind must be fresher ,so think any other matters

    if the manager calls you only one time ,just you can go to the meeting'

    if the manager keeps the meeting daily ,just tell that it is a lunch time

    if you can not tell means just change your lunch time

    if the manager give compliant on you , you can decrease the grades

    based on this grades ,your salary depends

    hope this information helps you

    good luck

    Re: Is it necessary to have official meeting during lunch?

    Hello,

    Generally in office due to pressure of work employees skip there lunch and often stay back late at office .

    This usually affects their health .

    Lunch break is only for having lunch. its a break from work.

    This will affect your health and working without having meal will also decrease the efficiency of the person .

    so your body and mind needs some break from work.

    If your boss is asking you to attend the meeting at the lunch break them you should request them to schedule it after lunch.

    as over working is also not good.

    If they refuse then ask them to give some break so that you can have your lunch and you will join the meeting.

    This should not be encouraged.

    Thank you

    Hello

    It really must be irritating to skip your lunch always plus with so much work pressure.

    You can ask your manager and discuss this problem with him. Tell him this is the problem you are facing when the meeting is conducted in the lunch hours.

    Hopefully he will listen. This is IT sector for you.

    Else you can talk about this to your HR if your manager doesnt listen. Tell him that everyday your lunch hours are being missed as a result of these meetings.

    Plus you are doing all the hard work and completing it in time so they should atleast consider giving you the 1hr of lunch time

    Dear Friend

    Yes Lunch time is the only time to get the some refreshment in the hectic office work in the present scenario in which you have to work till midnight for long hours..

    I makes you very tired and when you have some time free in the lunch time then also there is an official meeting that is very annoying..

    But the higher authorities also do not have any option as they are also busy ..

    And they also have to spoil there free time for the welfare of the company..

    You can talk politely about this to your boos that lunch time is the only free time they get in the office and you are taking meeting in that time this is not good for the mentality of the employees they can get stressed by this

    He surely take some action and give you the free time..

    ALL THE BEST

    • No, it is not at all necessary to have the official meeting at lunch time.
    • If it's the matter of one to two days then it must be ignored. It happens in every company.
    • But if it's happening daily, then it's not feasible as without lunch at the right time will affect the working efficiency of an employee.
    • The company is liable to take care of the health of an employee.
    • You may drop an formal letter to your manager requesting him not to schedule the metting on lunch time.
    • You may also inform the same to the HR of your company.
    • If even request if it doesn't changes, then all the employees together must register a complaint to the higher management of the company.

    It is not wise and susceptible to try and do or attend meeting at the time of Lunch hour,whatever is also the work pressure among the corporate it's AN odd habitual system to try and do meeting at the lunch hour.All ought to begin from such odd habit that isn't encourage able to company,employer and worker you all are to search out out,manage a viable time beyond regulation to prepare meeting for the welfare of the corporate.

    As you have got same that you simply add lots of stress condition, thus you wish to allow rest to your mind and create it relax for an instant too.

    Re: Is it necessary to have official meeting during lunch?

    Hi aspirant ..

    I dont think lunch time should be used to conduct meetings as this is the only time when you can relax. Your mind certainly gets tired till lunch time and thus it needs relaxation for you to work optimally after lunch time. And also your body too demands rest during lunch time. So of course there should be no meetings conducted during lunch time as this reduces the duration of your relaxation time and thus you will not be re-energized for your work later on and thus it will affect your performance.

    I think you should directly tell your manager that you dont get complete relaxation when the meetings are conducted during lunch time and thus this effects your work performance later on after lunch. So you request him to conduct his meetings at some other time so that you could get proper rest during lunch time so that you can work efficiently later on.

    I am sure he will see reason in your request and thus accept it willingly for the good of the company.

    Best of luck to you

    Re: Is it necessary to have official meeting during lunch?

    Hello Friend,
    Yes its completely unfair if they call meeting in lunch hour daily,for a day or two its manageable but not daily.you need to talk to the manager regarding this...as lunch time is a specific time provided for the lunch you cant miss that and you should not for the health perspective.and the meeting can be arranged in business hour as it is s business meeting and this is the duty of manager to plan it accordingly.if they ask you to participate in the meeting during lunch time you along with your teammates can decline the option and ask him to arrange it in the business hour.if they keep on repeating the same talk to the higher management and bring it to the notice of HR ,he will talk to the manager.
    Thank yOu

    Dear Friend!

    Its really difficult to survive with lot of pressure in these industries. But you should not worry about this if it happens sometimes, you should attend the meeting, because occasionally meeting are very important for company purpose, If its happen again and again then you must contact with higher concern team of the company and tell them about this situation.Definitely They will consider on this topic and get the solution.
