How long is the typical meeting?

The Story Behind This Graph

Seeing how your organization allocates its meeting time allows you to examine how your staff approaches collaboration. Over time, changes in this metric may indicate overall shifts in the way that your employees approach meetings.

Why It Matters

Meeting time should be productive time. Measuring your average meeting length provides a benchmark for your staff to use when evaluating whether or not they’re making the most of that time.

How It’s Calculated

We calculate average meeting length by adding up all meeting lengths and dividing by the number of meetings. This uses the true length of meetings, excluding no-show and canceled meetings. The shaded region covers 50% of all meeting lengths. This gives you a sense of how skewed the average meeting length is (because of really long meetings) compared to typical meetings.
