Within large companies and remote or hybrid offices, it can be especially hard to unify cross-departmental teams, leadership, and stakeholders – and experience the company cohesiveness that drives morale.
One solution is to hold an all-hands meeting. But, how can yet another meeting boost team morale?
All Hands meetings bring every team member across various departments together to unify goals, grow familiar, and share achievements and challenges
These company-wide meetings help departments understand the function and contributions of other teams
Company All Hands meetings help employees feel more unified and provide transparency throughout the entire organization
A typical All Hands agenda walks through the wins, challenges, and goals of each department, allowing team members between departments to celebrate, offer suggestions, and plan together
Having each department prepare a quick slide to share for wins, challenges, and goals and having a team lead or rotating team members share during a video conference meeting works best for large companies. Small companies may want to meet up in the conference room for snacks while they present.
Consider adding themes to slides, sharing fun jokes, or incorporating shout-outs so team members can publically recognize each other to keep it engaging.
Keep in mind, there is not necessarily a metric to measure the success of an All Hands meeting. They create accountability and unity. Seeing employees engaged, connecting, and having fun is a clear win.
