The Benefits of Being Seen and Heard
A key benefit of AGMs is that they hold an audience’s attention better than other forms of communication. It also helps all employees in understanding Comapny’s stratigic position and the way forward for the company as well as individual departments.
Being able to see the person who is amongst the decision makers of the company and be able to ask any questions helps build acceptance and credibility within the organization’s environment. These meetings have also helped setting the direction of the company through employee suggestions and participation.
