Many businesses host regular companywide meetings or “Town Halls,” and they’re a great opportunity to share strategy and budget updates, discuss commitments to policies, address concerns or raise any other topics that apply to the team at large.
Typically, executives and senior management will lead these meetings — but have you thought about featuring employees who’ve worked on key projects or have expertise in a particular area of the business? Hearing from a peer in another department is a great way to learn about their day-to-day work, and other efforts you might not be aware of.
By empowering your employees to take the stage and present certain updates to their colleagues, you also help create a more level playing field, where all team members have the opportunity to participate, as equals. They’ll be more invested in these types of company discussions, and an extra benefit here is a chance for your employees to practice their presentation skills.
